SAN FRANCISCO, CA – HappyCo announced today that Portland-based Vacasa will now use HappyCo’s mobile property inspection platform to standardize inspections and maintenance across its 4,000+ vacation homes throughout the U.S. HappyCo customers have so far completed over 1.3 million inspections with Happy Inspector, the leading mobile app for inspecting and monitoring residential properties, commercial facilities and workforce performance. Vacasa took the #1 spot in the Portland Business Journal’s list of 100 Fastest Growing Private Companies in June of 2014, and in August of that year gained national recognition as Inc. Magazine’s #9 fastest-growing private company in America. In 2015, the company was named Large Company of the Year by Better Business Bureau Northwest.
HappyCo CEO Jindou Lee said, “Vacasa is an undisputed global leader in vacation home management, and its advanced rate algorithms give homeowners the best return on the market. The HappyCo platform improves inspection data capture and efficiency, and empowers Vacasa with improved business intelligence and data analysis to help their staff maintain the highest standards across its portfolio.”
The HappyCo platform features customizable forms, in-line photographs, and real-time, 360º visibility to help Vacasa efficiently address any issues so vacationers can enjoy a hassle-free and consistent experience.
”We’re excited to be teaming up with HappyCo to change the way Vacasa inspects its properties,” said Lorenzo Ciacci, Chief Technology Officer at Vacasa. “We are known as a technology innovator in the vacation rental industry, and we build most of our own applications in-house. Choosing to work with HappyCo was a major shift in our typical approach to new technology, but the bottom line is HappyCo solved a really tough technology problem with flawless online/offline syncing and highly customizable mobile forms, which allow us to design specific use cases for thousands of unique property types.”
