LAS VEGAS, Jan. 4, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- (CES) -- OKIDOKEYS today announced the launch of RentEZ, a virtual concierge app that gives home sharing hosts and rental property owners a convenient way to offer a professional menu of amenities and services to their guests.

"Airbnb hosts as well as Flipkey and HomeAway owners can offer the RentEZ services to make a property more attractive to renters," says Pascal Metivier, founder and CEO of OpenWays and OKIDOKEYS. "Our extensive background in the hospitality industry gives us deeper insight into the expectations of modern travelers. Now that our Smart-Locks are available worldwide, adding hotel services to our offerings for the rapidly expanding home sharing economy is a natural step."
