"Beginning in January 2013 we are going to solve a big problem for each stakeholder in the Vacation Rental transaction—the Traveler, the Home Owner, and the Professional Property Manager," said Robert Käll, CEO of Bookt. "We have teamed up with Rental Guardian to optimize insurance protection for each participant, and can now deliver it end-to-end through our InstaManager Software and Marketing Solution." Käll added,  "To differentiate our product, InstaManager, it was important to be global and have the whole gamut of protection covered including Accidental Damage, Renters Property and Liability, Trip Cancellation, even Bedbugs – and to work with worldwide industry leaders like Lloyd's of London, Munich RE and Chartis. Our partnership with Rental Guardian gives us a truly global solution we can uniquely deliver via the cloud." 

Rental Guardian offers insurance solutions that can be customized to the needs of the travel industry and is always on the lookout for key integration partners. "InstaManager is a great fit for us because they are fast growing, have advanced technology and have proven that they have the global reach in the Vacation Rental space," said Rental Guardian co-founder Sean Miller.  "Seamless integration with their platform expands our protection to the property management community – lowering their operating cost and risk while increasing their revenue."  Miller added, "And let's not forget that the property manager needs to satisfy both owners and guests, and this type of protection makes everyone happier and definitely more secure." 

The InstaManager Rental Guardian rollout kicks off at the beginning of the New Year. "Clients have been asking for this protection tool and the great news is that it comes as part of the InstaManager FLEX $1 Switch," said Matthew Hoffman, VP of Vacation Rentals at Bookt.  "Integration means that the process is fully automated for both online and offline bookings and that we can get them up and running selling insurance in days.  And, of course, property managers like the potential to add over $100 dollars of profit per booking."

InstaManager FLEX is a groundbreaking product combining powerful vacation rental manager software with tailored marketing distribution through FlipKey and TripAdvisor, with pricing starting at $1 with additional fees tied exclusively to a client's booking success.  Since 2007, Bookt has successfully served a fast growing global network of vacation rental managers.  With the introduction of InstaManager FLEX and continual rollout of new features like Rental Guardian integration from InstaManager's exclusive VR Labs, Bookt anticipates accelerated growth and rising market prominence.

The essence of data analysis involves setting up data pipelines that consist of several operations that are chained together – starting from data collection, data quality checks, data integration, data analysis and data visualization (including the setting up of interaction paths in that visualization).
