Canada: All-in-one technology platform Jetstream Hospitality Solutions, which is powering the rise of properties entering the short-term and flexible rental market has announced an integration with Amadeus, a technology provider for the travel industry, to enable more effective content distribution across booking channels.
Operating property management systems in the hospitality industry is complex, more so than ever in a difficult labour market.
A particular challenge facing hotels and resorts is to efficiently market and distribute rooms across new and growing short-term rental channels such as Airbnb, Vrbo, HomeToGo and Holidu. Contrary to typical hotel booking channels, short-term rental sites offer the user a more experiential shopping experience with rich content requirements.
Jetstream is designed to offer a full-service channel management platform with the specific expertise required to provide thousands of new and incremental bookings per month to traditional hospitality providers.
Partnering with Amadeus allows a two-way API connection between the two companies removing pain points for hoteliers along the way and saving large amounts of time and staff resources. Through the partnership, room bookings can be seamlessly distributed as instant book across multiple short-term rental channels and then fed back into the hotel’s PMS, with up-to-date and accurate data.
Amadeus’ hotel customers will be able to benefit from Jetstream’s core offering:
- Full-service distribution to short-term rental channels
- Access to award-winning content creation services providing captivating content that resonates with short-term rental site users
- Excellent customer service support in the form of 24/7 multilingual reservation support
Jetstream CEO Emmanuel Lavoie said: “We are delighted to announce this partnership with Amadeus. Our mission is to help hospitality companies operate more efficiently and cost effectively by offering best-in-class technology and service solutions.
“This two-way API is a great solution providing efficiency, channel distribution and marketing as well as fantastic customer service,” he added.
Javier Campo, head of global partnerships, hospitality, Amadeus, said: “Partnering with Jetstream means our hotel partners can now reach more channels with growing user bases. The guests’ experience is enhanced as they have a simpler and faster shopping experience and greater options.
“As the industry continues to recover technology will be a critical component of improving operational efficiencies while opening new revenue opportunities and meeting guest expectations. The integration of Amadeus and Jetstream solutions is an ideal way for hotels to increase revenue without increasing costs,” he added.
