Travel Tech Company LiveRez Organizes Hurricane Relief Efforts for Its Customers



EAGLE, Idaho, Oct. 3, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- LiveRez.com, the most widely used cloud-based software for professional vacation rental managers, is leveraging its broad network of property manager partners to provide relief to those hit hardest by the recent hurricanes.

The effort, called LiveRelief, is mobilizing hundreds of LiveRez's customers (called partners) to come to the aid of fellow property management companies that have been hit the hardest by hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria.

"Over the past few years, we've seen our customer base organize into a tight-knit community," said Tracy Lotz, founder and CEO of LiveRez. "When the hurricanes hit, we had multiple partners reach out to us and ask us how they could help. So, our team organized this effort that allows property managers to help other property managers in their time of greatest need."

Many of LiveRez's partners operate in vacation destinations along the coastline. When the hurricanes hit, more than 100 LiveRez Partners were affected and more than 30 lost nearly everything.

Most of the hardest hit companies are small businesses that not only lost their offices and personal homes, but also lost the bulk of the homes that they rent out on behalf of second-home owners. While insurance will cover the rebuilding of these homes, the loss of inventory leaves these managers with no way to generate income to pay their bills or their employees, many of whom have been displaced.

LiveRelief takes a multi-faceted approach in helping these managers:

"To date, the response from partners has been overwhelming," Lotz said. "The LiveRez family has responded in a big way. And, based on the donations we already have, we expect to raise more than $100,000 that will go directly to helping our affected partners not only weather the storm but come out stronger."

The LiveRelief silent auction will be online and open to the public. Item donations are still coming in, but many partners have already donated stays in homes from all across the United States and abroad. To view the auction items and bid, please go to LiveRez.cbo.io.
