Both platforms allow sending automated messages based on triggers and using shortcodes for personalization. But only Hospitable.com can be used for proactive communication to offer guests an extended stay based on availability. Another advantage of Hospitable.com is that its system can detect questions in guests’ messages on 20+ topics and sends automated responses to provide guests with the necessary information.

And although Hospitable.com offers more features, it’s a cheaper solution – $59 per two listings compared to $62 per two listings on IGMS.
