New Riyadh office extends tech platform’s global footprint to more than 60 cities
Specialising in short-term rental property, global tech company GuestReady has launched in Saudi Arabia with the opening of an office in Riyadh.
The company's first Middle East office opened in Dubai in the UAE in 2016.
GuestReady GCC managing director Reem Al Khatib said: “Domestic tourism has always been strong in Saudi Arabia and now, with international travel set to play a more significant role thanks to Vision 2030, we see a tremendous opportunity to not just support guests, investors and property owners, but also the sector as a whole.”
GuestReady is also introducing its innovative proprietary platform and property management system (PMS), RentalReady to Saudi Arabia.
RentalReady offers all-in-one functionality for managing short-term holiday rentals to both property owners and managers, as it also offers guests streamlined and convenient services and information.
In addition, in what is believed to be a regional first, GuestReady recently introduced two new Artificial Intelligence (AI) integrations into the platform, that in turn, create personalised itineraries for guests across GuestReady’s global network.
The itineraries are designed to deliver a memorable stay across GuestReady’s network of premium short-term properties, while AI-powered communications enable guest-facing teams to respond swiftly and professionally, providing accurate information and addressing guest inquiries effectively.
GuestReady KSA managing director AbdelRahman ElSharkawi added: “From a guest point of view, we know that domestic travellers in Saudi tend to favour furnished apartments for a variety of reasons and this is a great opportunity for us to elevate their experience through both personal service and technology.
"From an investor perspective, we can help property owners navigate and capitalise on what is a dynamic and thriving real estate market.”
Under Vision 2030, Saudi Arabia plans to reach 100 million tourists annually by 2030, to contribute 10% to the country’s GDP and create one million jobs in the tourism industry.
