OwnerRez also provides travel insurance and damage protection insurance, as well as integration with QuickBooks, property management/owner statements, and other powerful features.

According to Ken Taylor, Director of Operations for OwnerRez, “Our mission is to deliver fast and simple booking services that help manage vacation rentals. Our system allows PMs to manage many properties, automate their communication, and get detailed statistics and reports without needing to hire additional staff. Partnering with ASCENT, who prides itself on being the originator of Vacation Rental-specific payment processing, completes OwnerRez’s product options, designed to meet the demands required to compete in today’s marketplace.”
