Availpro and LateRooms.com now offer hotel owners a way to manage their LateRooms.com accommodation offers directly from Availpro. This connectivity, allowing rates and availability to be updated in both directions is the one of the first solutions available for managing LateRooms.com.
LateRooms.com signs with Availpro, the business forerunner – One of the first company two-way connectivity
LateRooms.com has chosen to join forces with Availpro to develop thefirst in a new generation of connectivity, allowing its hotel clients to manage LateRooms.com via a single Channel Manager. Hotels can quickly and easily manage the key details of their offer, with updates guaranteed twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week. By signing this technological partnership with the industry reference, LateRooms.com will reinforce its position on the French market and simplify hotel owners’ management of their offer on LateRooms.com.
Kathy Gwinnett, Hotel Relations Director at LateRooms.com, had this to say about the partnership: “We look forward to reaping the benefits of having a wider inventory through teaming up with Availpro, to meet the strong demand we are experiencing. The partnership has been highlyanticipated by our existing French hotel partners who can now deliver more rooms for sale by spending less time updating their listings. LateRooms.com is keen to work with companies like Availpro to improve the satisfaction of our hotel partners and improve the customer offering.”
The value of Availpro two-way connectivity recognised by LateRooms.com
By choosing to develop their connectivity with Availpro, LateRooms.com wanted to simplify the day-to-day workings of its hotel partners so that they had just one Availpro planning to manage. The other essential advantage for LateRooms.com, as well as hotels, is that Availpro’s central inventory has the effect of increasing the number of rooms available for sale on all distribution channels, including LateRooms.com. This means more visibility for the hotel and more potential sales for LateRooms.com - a win-win situation for both parties.
Philippe Lamarche, President of Availpro’s board of directors says “We’re pleased to be able to offer this much requested connectivity to the hotels using our system. Having information updated 24 hours a day, 7 days a week on all distribution channels means that hotel owners can optimise their occupancy and consequently their revenue. It also saves them time, as there’s no longer any need to enter information manually, leaving hotels with more time to concentrate on strategic tasks such as their rate plans.”
By integrating LateRooms.com in their network of distributor partners, Availpro confirms its position on an international level. The partnership will bring the company kudos that will allow it to become an important, recognised actor in the British markets where LateRooms.com has a very strong presence.
