Calgary, AB – October 7, 2013 – WebRezPro Property Management System has been announced as a TripConnect Premium partner for TripAdvisor’s new platform. TripConnect will be a powerful new way for hotels and B&Bs to generate incremental bookings by participating in Hotel Price Comparison and self-managing their online advertising campaigns using TripConnect’s unique bid management platform. Certified booking engines will provide the accommodation’s real time availability and online booking capability to make this possible.
With the upcoming launch of TripConnect, TripAdvisor’s accommodation clients will be able to bid for TripAdvisor meta search traffic, participate in automated review collection and track return on investment for their campaigns.
“A property’s online reservation system plays a fundamental role in this new TripAdvisor initiative,” commented Frank Verhagen, President of World Web Technologies Inc., the company behind WebRezPro PMS. “As a TripConnect premium partner, WebRezPro not only provides direct integration with the TripConnect program that allows hoteliers to compete for direct bookings on TripAdvisor, it also offers the benefit of enhanced revenue tracking so that hotels can measure the success of their campaign,” continued Verhagen.
“TripConnect certification opens up new opportunities for our Internet booking engine partners,” said Jean-Charles Lacoste, TripAdvisor’s Vice President of Direct Connect Solutions. “When the platform launches, accommodation owners of all sizes can benefit from TripAdvisor’s Hotel Price Comparison via certified Internet booking engines. TripConnect will be a new, very efficient way for hoteliers to generate incremental business via their Internet booking engine.”
