On the 25th of November 2010, the Smart Channel Manager Availpro was accredited as an Expedia Preferred Vendor, providing direct connectivity for hotels to Expedia’s global marketplace, which includes 19 Expedia.com sites, over 70 Hotels.com sites, and the Expedia Affiliate Network of over 10,000 active affiliates. Expedia is the world’s largest online travel company and its recognition of Availpro is the result of a long-standing collaboration between the Availpro and Expedia teams, which established the reliability of Availpro’s connectivity and the responsiveness of its sales teams.
Availpro is now a certified connectivity provider to Expedia’s hotel partners worldwide as a leading technology solution for managing room distribution through Expedia.
Philippe Lamarche, Chairman of the Availpro Management Board, hails this partnership: “All preferred partners are winners in this initiative. We are proud to be one of the few partners certified by Expedia. This initiative is fully justified and even desirable when giving reassurance to hotel operators. Since the beginning of 2010, Availpro has implemented the same type of certification process among its own web agency and hotel management software partners.”
