In partnership, DerbySoft announces the successful connection between Expedia Group and Atour Hotel, a leading lifestyle hotel company based in Shanghai, China. Atour has recently launched 200 hotels on Expedia which will promote both inbound tourism and business travel within China. This partnership will also boost Atour’s brand worldwide through Expedia’s global marketing influence and resources.
DerbySoft worked with both partners through its Connectivity Suite which offers Streamlined Connectivity (formally known as Go). With this live connection, Expedia has the most up-to-date availability, rates and inventory (ARI) for the connected Atour, providing both parties the highest accuracy of ARI for their customers.
“We are glad to have DerbySoft as a provider of their high-performance distribution services,” states Jessie Cai, the national business development director for Expedia. “DerbySoft offers Expedia real-time bookings of connected Atour properties to ensure all reservations are received efficiently. As a Chinese company, we are looking forward to the care that Expedia will take to ensure Atour customers will be taken care of prior to traveling in China.”
DerbySoft has over 750 partners connected to the Connectivity Suite and processes 8 million room nights per month. The 15-year old technology company looks forward to building more revenue for both Expedia and Atour in China.
