In this episode of Hospitable we dive into the independent hoteliers space.

Our guest this week is CEO and Co-Founder of RoomRaccoon Tyman van Dyl. Tyman shares his mission to empower independent hoteliers around the world with a complete and innovative management system. He believes that powerful software should not be exclusive to those with deeper pockets, but accessible to anyone in the industry.

We talk about the parity of running a company with your partner, both in business and in life, and how his journey into creating software solutions for the boutique hotel space came to be. We also discuss how to manage teams across the world and why strategic hubs are important and impactful. Tymen emphasizes the significance of adopting a forward-looking approach and prioritizing future growth when starting a company and the importance of avoiding fixation on the past and instead focusing on what works best for the future.

Join the conversation as they discuss the importance of customer satisfaction and making hospitality more human through technology.
