HotelRunner, a sales channel management platform and B2B network for OTAs and hotels, has been recognised and certified as a preferred software partner by Airbnb.
Since Hotel Runner announced an API integration five months ago, the platform has been recognised with the certification due to its innovative technology.
Airbnb launched and developed its preferred software partner program as a means of recognising partners that provide fully-integrated connectivity solutions for hosts listing on the rental platform, and have exceeded Airbnb’s performance benchmarks.
In addition, HotelRunner’s two-way API connectivity to the full suite of Airbnb functionality, allows properties to list their rooms on Airbnb directly, so they can then reach the Airbnb member community and connect to millions of guests.
Riza Kaynak, director of partner success at HotelRunner, said: “We are proud to have been acknowledged by Airbnb for our innovative technology as well as our support and services which have contributed to the growth of the Airbnb platform in number of new hosts and bookings.
“We are making it easy for our hosts to connect to Airbnb’s growing guest community. We’ll maintain the hard work on our end to on-board thousands of new properties from all over the world to Airbnb, using our proven experience in acquiring new accommodation partners,” he added.
HotelRunner is present in 193 countries ranging from daily short-term rentals to bed and breakfasts, boutique hotels and enterprise hotels and chains.
