Next-Gen Tech Visionary Shares Insights on a Limitless Future for Guest-Centric Independent Hoteliers

Published on

As Steve Jobs once said, “Innovation distinguishes between a leader and a follower,” and in an ever-changing world, innovation is what empowers hoteliers to remain one step ahead. I had an opportunity to sit down with one such leader, Venkatesh Sakamuri, a visionary tech innovator who is reshaping a legacy landscape with the creation of Stayflexi, a truly transformative all-in-one property management and automation platform. He shared the tragic story that inspired his quest, the challenges he is solving for hoteliers, and his vision for the future.

Notably, Sakamuri’s desire to develop a next-generation hotel management platform wasn’t initially born out of a desire to change the experience of hoteliers. Instead, the problems he faced as a frequent traveler made him aware of critical gaps in the guest experience. “I had terrible experiences checking and checking out of hotels or making any modifications to reservations I made while traveling,” he explained.
