RezNext, the world’s only true real-time enterprise distribution technology company, and the Expedia group, one of the world’s leading travel companies, have partnered to provide real-time availability of the suite of hotels RezNext works with in India to global markets. With the strategic partnership, the Expedia group can now also provide its international customers easy access to real-time availability, promotions, and more products/services from leading hotels in India.
“Globally, consumers are looking for extra values from their travel spend. While hotels today are adopting several such incentives, from delivering compelling content to unique packages, these components are not always visible internationally,” said Drew Bowering, Director, Global Partner Group, APAC at the Expedia group. “The Expedia group strives to deliver compelling experiences with robust customer engagement programs. The deeper integration with RezNext will help us fulfill the discerning needs of international travellers, providing them more options across packages, room types and rate plans,” added Bowering. With this partnership, hotels connected to the RezNext network will now have improved visibility among international guests across all time zones, resulting in improved conversions for hotels.
“We are excited that our real-time two-way distribution platform will be utilised by the Expedia group. This is an important milestone that will add to simplify online distribution for our hotel client base. We currently connect to all the leading online channels in India and international markets,” said Mike Kistner, Chief Executive Officer, RezNext Global Solutions. “The two-way channel connectivity and the enhanced revenue functionality offered through our distribution platform is helping our hotels across all categories, from independents to chains, collaborate better with demand channels and focus on revenue optimisation,” added Mike Kistner.
RezNext has a growing client base of 2000+ hotels globally and is continually helping its clients improve their online yield. The company is focused on bringing thousands of mid-market hotels online that hitherto did not have a digital presence thereby helping online travel agents and hotels improve their online booking revenues.
