Beyond Pricing Acquires Smart Host

Smart HostSmart Host


We’ve got great news. Beyond Pricing has acquired Smart Host.

Along the way, our 2 companies have taken different approaches. We focused on comps, market data, and vacation rental managers, while Beyond Pricing focused on automation, dynamic rates, and Airbnb hosts.

Beyond Pricing wanted to add a comps feature to their product, and we wanted to give our customers a fully automated solution.

A few thoughts from Ian McHenry, Beyond Pricing’s CEO:

“One of the most common requests we’ve gotten from hosts is the ability to see comps and gauge their performance relative to their neighbors. In the past, we’d recommended people check out Smart Host. With this acquisition, we’re excited to carry the torch forward and offer the features of Smart Host to our user base of over 120,000 listings in over 1,000 markets around the world.”

To our customers, you’re in good hands.

The last 3 years have been a wild ride. We started Smart Host on a bus, headed down to Techstars with little more than a hackathon project, sold our product, and raised money.

Thank you for helping us along the way, especially:

Take part in the great adventure of your time,

Evan, Dave, and Nick
