Prepare yourself and your properties for peaks in demand in 2021

We know that travel is likely to recover gradually and at varying rates, reflecting how and when governments are able to accelerate vaccine distribution and relax lockdown rules and social distancing measures. Despite the unpredictability of the current situation, we are still seeing signs of encouraging demand for travel.

We’re working to provide you continuous support in the months ahead, by offering a variety of new resources, solutions and product updates. These will help you:

Plan and prioritise – get started with the all new Messaging API and explore the Reservation Outage Toolkit to create a fail-safe reservation environment
Grow, onboard or switch new properties – our Onboarding Solutions will help ensure your onboarding processes run smoothly
Improve your properties’ performance – read DerbySoft’s success story on how they created a frictionless payment experience
Get information and support – make sure you watch Click. on demand and sign up for research interviews to earn additional programme points
