Bunkhouse Group adds property-management-system mobility

In June, StayNTouch successfully deployed Rover and Zest at El Cosmico in Marfa, Texas.

Bunkhouse Group, which is based in Austin, Texas, has partnered with StayNTouch to deploy its Rover property-management system and Zest products at Bunkhouse's seven hotels. In June, StayNTouch successfully deployed the products at El Cosmico in Marfa, Texas. Bunkhouse will continue to expand its portfolio in the near future.

“At Bunkhouse we create totally immersive experiences that extend beyond the typical front desk and the guestroom,” Bunkhouse Group President Christian Strobel said. “Many of our hotels have multiple buildings and include important, social exterior spaces. We needed a PMS that could move with the staff anywhere on our properties to serve our guests. StayNTouch’s mobile PMS gives us this ability.”

“As we develop future projects, we will continue to innovate on the guest experience and so require a technology platform that will grow and evolve with us,” he continued. “We have been impressed with StayNTouch’s commitment to supporting new hotel concepts in both front and back of house operations.”
