Short-term rental operators understand that technology helps automate certain aspects of our hosting business, saving time and streamlining our operations. But there are few tools that smaller Airbnb hosts can afford.

So, what is the ideal tech setup for STR hosts with five units or less?

Henry Bennett is the Cofounder and CEO of YourWelcome, a guest engagement tablet currently used in 15,000 STR properties. Henry and the YourWelcome team are in the process of launching PropertyCare, a complementary platform to automate guest engagement and manage STR cleaning and maintenance.

On this episode of Get Paid for Your Pad, Henry joins me to explain why most STR tech is not created for small Airbnb hosts and how PropertyCare is addressing this gap in the market.
