PartnershipsStayFi and Ascent: Partners Helping Vacation Rental Managers Succeed
Vacation rental managers use StayFi to brand WiFi, collect guest data, and increase direct bookings - all while providing a better WiFi experience for guests.
Founded in 2018, StayFi's mission is to build independent vacation rental brands and engage more guests to #bookdirect. StayFi was born out of real-life experience marketing for some of the top short-term rental management companies in the United States. StayFi found that property managers were increasingly cut off from their guest data by OTAs. Their solution harnesses the system every guest already uses, the WiFi, to engage guests and collect their contact information.
