Inntopia Announces RedAwning Integration
New distribution integration gives Inntopia Commerce clients access to RedAwning’s distribution network and full-service marketing and call center services
Inntopia, the industry-leading provider of an omni-product central reservations system (CRS) that allows its clients to sell lodging, tickets, transportation, and other activities and services in a single transaction, today announced a partnership with RedAwning, a company that offers distribution to every major online travel booking website, as well as a suite of full-service marketing, call center, and other services.
“We are delighted to offer Inntopia clients access to our powerful network and our layer of unique marketing and reservation services, and we already have new clients who have signed up in advance of our launch,” said RedAwning CEO and founder Tim Choate. “With the most robust network of online marketing and distribution channels for vacation properties available, we are focusing our efforts on extending our reach to new properties and property manager types, and Inntopia gives us a big jump in seamless client connectivity.”
Clients using the Inntopia Commerce CRS, online booking engine, or distribution API will now have access to a one-stop solution for reaching major OTAs such as HomeAway/VRBO, AirBnb, Flipkey/TripAdvisor, Booking.com, Expedia, and more, as well as RedAwning’s own travel websites which include RedAwning.com, PerfectPlaces.com, VaycayHero.com, and TravelProRentals.com, a unique B2B booking platform designed especially for travel agents and tour operators.
Inntopia clients who choose to contract with RedAwning will get global distribution, marketing, and reservations management services for one commission, with no other distribution contracts to sign or channel costs or fees to pay.
“Distribution and marketing are hard problems to solve, especially for individual properties and smaller property managers. RedAwning is a unique and powerful tool that we’re very excited to offer a seamless connection to for clients using our Commerce platform,” said Inntopia CEO Trevor Crist.
