Noise Aware Partnership

Austin, TX, January 27, 2022 — GovOS, a leading provider of digital transformation solutions for local governments, today announced that it is partnering with NoiseAware®, the global leader in smart noise monitoring. The partnership will provide vacation homeowners and property managers with access to exclusive pricing and services for NoiseAware noise monitoring solutions.

Through this partnership, local governments using the GovOS Short-Term Rental (STR) solution for community monitoring can offer property owners discounted rates on NoiseAware noise monitoring solutions. Having NoiseAware at home can help property owners anticipate and mitigate noise issues before they get reported.

NoiseAware“It’s important that local governments underscore that they want to work together with short-term rentals,” said Kevin Lafeber, President, GovOS. “The first time a property owner receives a noise complaint, they’ll be offered a discount on a NoiseAware device, which has proven to be effective at ensuring compliance without violating renters’ rights. Having a NoiseAware solution in home has shown to reduce the likelihood of noise violations, so we want to do everything we can to get this technology in more short-term rental properties.”

The GovOS STR Solution is a multi-faceted platform that helps local governments get a handle on the community and economic impacts of short-term rentals. The STR Solution includes compliance, registration and permitting, tax collection, and a 24/7 complaint hotline. These features are designed to improve engagement with property owners so that local governments can continue to ensure providers in the sharing economy are in line with local ordinances.

“As the demand for short-term rentals comes roaring back, we applaud the efforts of local governments to encourage growth in their communities in a mindful way,” said NoiseAware  CEO Andrew Schulz. “GovOS’ solution gives local governments more flexibility when working with these properties, and this partnership goes a step further to enable responsible renting.  It’s a great way for governments to partner with citizens and local businesses and we’re happy to be aligned to facilitate.”
