🔮 Our Analysis
From finding a place to figuring everything out once you’ve arrived, traveling is a headache. But what if you could book a place to stay, and know exactly what you were getting, in just a few clicks? That’s the experience Jurny is building. Every offering the company provides guarantees the same tech-enhanced stay. With just a few clicks on the Jurny app, travelers can book their stay. Once they’ve arrived, they can unlock the door, connect to Wi-Fi, change the temperature, and more from the same app, contact-free. This consistency and quality make Jurny an appealing choice for travelers. For those on the other side of the marketplace, Jurny has created one of the first Management Operating Systems. Hotel and short-term rental operators should be enticed by the time-saving Jurny provides through its dashboard that makes automating basics like pricing and cleaning simple. We like where the company is headed, and can’t wait to see where it goes.
