In architecture, the keystone is the final piece placed atop a bridge or archway during construction that locks all the pieces into position.
For a vacation rental professional, a winner of VRMB's Keystone Awards is a software that allows your company to bear weight and grow.
A Keystone Award is the most respected vacation rental software recognition in the sector. For property management software, a Keystone Award reflects more independent research and verification than any other awards program in the world. For third-party or ancillary vacation rental software, a Keystone Award represents traction: companies whose existing users talk about them passionately.
The Keystone research process dives deep (like, absurdly deep) into vacation rental software, the individuals behind the scenes, and the active users who know their tools inside and out.
No other awards program has gone to such great lengths with the intention of providing the vacation rental management community with information they can use to make better decisions, faster, as related to software to operate their business more efficiently.
(We know because we're active on most of those judging panels.)
What makes a Keystone Award different is the amount of thought and consideration that is put into recognizing innovation.
