Katanox partners with Cloudbeds to expand B2B distribution opportunities to thousands of independent properties worldwide
Katanox, the transparent B2B marketplace for travel accommodations and travel sellers, today announced a new integration with Cloudbeds, the world’s fastest-growing hospitality management platform. With this integration, Cloudbeds’ thousands of customers in 155 countries can easily distribute their inventory with new travel sellers, including independent OTAs, travel publishers, TMC/DMCs, and airlines. There are no integration fees or setup costs; accommodation suppliers just pay an agreed commission in exchange for a new booking coming through direct travel sellers.
Katanox makes connecting and contracting inventory and payments for travel sellers effortless and helps to level the playing field for independent properties in the world of hospitality distribution.
In a post-pandemic world, it’s essential for accommodation suppliers to decrease their dependency on the major booking platforms. Katanox offers a trusted framework in which hotels and independent travel sellers can customize their offering and pricing to consumers and streamline their booking policies and payments effortlessly.
A partnership between Katanox and Cloudbeds enhances each company’s offerings and helps accommodation suppliers around the world to take another step to control their business instead of being dependent on the usual suspects in travel distribution.
Sebastien Leitner, VP of Partnerships at Cloudbeds, commented, “Our partnership with Katanox is yet another example of how our hospitality management platform helps independent properties easily reach new markets without depending solely on the major OTAs. The integration between Cloudbeds and Katanox allows hoteliers and hosts to seamlessly distribute rates and inventory to travel sellers of their choice, without having to deal with manual updates and administration.”
Imre Vogelezang, co-founder and Head of Product at Katanox, commented, “With the seamless onboarding of new inventory through Cloudbeds, we offer digital native travel sellers the best engineering experience to build a direct business relationship with hoteliers as easy as sending a text message with Twilio.”
