ExpertsHired has been selected to build the next generation of vacation rental software for many vacation companies left stranded by Home Away and Instant Software. HomeAway got sued a couple of months after acquiring Instant Software and the dispute has left up to 70 to 80 professional management companies of vacation-rental properties hoping their websites don’t crash and scrambling to rebuild and redeploy them on new servers.
The controversy relates to HomeAway’s Sept. 17, 2010, acquisition of Instant Software, which offers property managers an electronic distribution and online booking tool, ISI Link.
A week before the HomeAway-Instant Software deal closed, Instant Software allegedly entered into a partner agreement with Denver-based TravelStorm, according to an ongoing lawsuit that TravelStorm filed against HomeAway Nov. 24, 2010, in U.S. District Court in Denver.
TravelStorm’s customers are professional managers of vacation rental properties and the company builds, hosts and powers 70 to 80 of these sites with its Rezolution software.
TravelStorm alleges that HomeAway breached its obligation to honor the Instant Software-TravelStorm contract, which required Instant Software to give TravelStorm access to “Princeton” proprietary software and ISI Link so TravelStorm could develop websites and listings for vacation rentals owned or managed by Instant Software customers.
