Keep your properties safe from parties, damage and more.
Everyday, the hospitality industry opens its doors to strangers, leaving it vulnerable to parties, property damage and criminal activity. To mitigate these kinds of issues, Autohost is giving property managers the tools they need to verify transactions and minimize external risks.
By combining short-term rental industry expertise with the ironclad defense of cybersecurity, we created an intelligent guest-screening system that assesses reservations in a legal and non-discriminatory way. Using AI, we analyze every element of the booking to determine its risk level. We then augment this analysis with background checks, ID verification and multiple behavioral tests, to make sure guests are exactly who they say they are.
We help property managers trust their guests, so they can remove booking restrictions, increase occupancy and scale their business.
To be the #1 software for facilitating and verifying online transactions without discrimination.
Innovate and apply advanced technologies to create ethical screening solutions for global businesses.
In 2016, our co-founders, Ela Mezhiborsky and Anton Zilberberg, launched a successful property management company in Toronto, Canada. The goal was to offer luxury and hassle-free accommodations for fellow travellers. But as the company scaled, we dealt with a ton of incidents caused by bad reservations: out-of-control parties, property damage, massive cleaning bills and fraudulent bookings. The tipping point came when a criminal gang hijacked one of our properties, bringing in illicit drugs and automatic weapons.
With no available solutions in the short-term rental industry, Ela and Anton created their own. Pulling in cybersecurity expert and long-time friend Roy Firestein, the trio built Autohost.
An intelligent guest-screening and automation platform, Autohost was born out of necessity. Bringing together the expertise of the short-term rental industry with the ironclad defense of cybersecurity, Autohost creates a scalable process to review your reservations and keep your properties safe.
