Canada: All-in-one technology platform Jetstream Hospitality Solutions, which is powering the rise of multi-unit properties entering the short-term and flexible rental market, has partnered with Inntopia, an aggregator of accommodations and activities in the resort industry.
The partnership means that Jetstream will have access to Inntopia’s core strength of aggregating all of the rentable rooms and bookable activities in a destination and making them online bookable with real-time pricing and availability.
Jetstream, which has a global presence with offices in the United States, Canada, Europe, Asia and the UK, aims to enable owners, managers and developers of multi-unit rental properties to maximise revenues and realise opportunities in the short-term and flexible rental market.
Inntopia integrates with various property management systems and niche ski OTAs by normalising the data and then making rooms and activities available to book online. Inntopia also has various distribution APIs with more niche, usually ski industry type distribution channels, such as Whistler.com and Ski.com.
By partnering with Jetstream, Inntopia will be able to tap into Jetstream’s core speciality of distribution via OTAs – especially Airbnb and Vrbo – which need a content rich API. This will provide Inntopia with a significantly upgraded solution for its customers.
Jetstream CEO Emmanuel Lavoie said: “The partnership with Inntopia means they will have a highly competent and technically capable solution for their existing customer base to reach new short-term rental / vacation rental channels such as Airbnb, Vrbo, Home2Go, Holidu, Marriott Homes & Villas and Leavetown.com. Our rock solid technology and the fact we have a team of of expert writers who create unique, research-rich content that is required for those channels.
“Furthermore our global multilingual team of guest facing agents will handle all communications on their behalf,” he added.
Gregg Blanchard, VP marketing at Inntopia, said: “We are thrilled to be partnered with Jetstream so we can offer our resort and hotel users access to yet another powerful, innovative solution that allows them to effectively distribute their inventory across more channels.”
