As the hospitality and MDU markets move into recovery, the need for technology to optimize operations, delight guests and tenants and support staff becomes more critical. With increased safety concerns and new customer expectations, we have expanded our teams and products to provide the right quality and value needed in today’s environment.
Today, we announced product portfolio expansion, increased focus on research and development, hiring and movement to adjacent and international markets.
