Checkfront helps businesses increase their bookings by partnering with Expedia Local Expert, the leading online travel company's activities and destination experiences brand.
VICTORIA, April 4, 2017 /CNW/ - Today, Checkfront Inc, a leading provider of online booking solutions, announced an integration with Expedia Local Expert (LX) to provide Expedia travelers with access to real-time availability. Users can now connect their Checkfront supply with Expedia, giving them access to the largest full-service online travel company's global reach.
"Last year, a common theme among tour and activity providers was how to leverage distribution channels to grow their business," said Jason Morehouse, CEO of Checkfront. "We knew that giving our customers access to the Expedia ecosystem would help them scale their business. Expedia is so much more than just a distribution channel, they also provide powerful marketing programs to support tour and activities operators in expanding their reach and finding their customers at every stage of the buying cycle."
All booking information gathered through Expedia LX is instantaneously synced in Checkfront, including traveler information, booking details and sales metrics. When a traveler completes a booking through Expedia LX, availability in Checkfront is updated automatically, eliminating any chance of double or overbooking.
Checkfront Inc is a unified booking management system to accept reservations, process payments, track customers and simplify complex pricing, seasonality and inventory requirements. With customers in over 128 countries, Checkfront has processed over $1.6 billion in online bookings (USD).
