Channel manager one of the first partners to have build to room type inventory
Almere, June 2018 – The latest technology deployed for Airbnb by channel manager NextPax enables property managers to offer more than one room or unit type per property. With the new integration, NextPax can provide ‘hotel’ or ‘condotel’ style inventory through the connection to the global distribution giant.
Until recently, property managers were not able to list more than one unit / property per address on Airbnb due to technical limitations. Distribution of multi-unit type or category type inventory with more rooms at one address is made possible as all information from the reservation system can be pushed to Airbnb. With the new deployment, (boutique) hotels, B&Bs and holiday parks that offer ‘unique guest experiences’ can now be accepted on Airbnb. Their inventory, content, rates and availability are synchronized with Airbnb in a two-way connection.
The multi-unit solution NextPax developed for Airbnb not only updates rates and availability, also the room type inventory is automatically synchronized. The content API enables property managers to build and distribute their units even faster and with more accuracy. Robert van der Mast, CTO of NextPax explains: ‘Currently we are one of the first channel managers able to provide a multi-unit / category type solution that synchronizes room type inventory, rates and availability between Airbnb and the reservation system. Our technology can automatically build properties from the PMS onto Airbnb maximizing efficiency and reducing time to market.’
NextPax is looking forward to the upcoming quarters in which it will be connecting significant hotel inventory to its platform in addition to its current portfolio that consists of more than 600,000 vacation rentals and specialty lodging.
