The integration offers SMS clients direct access from their SMS|Host Hospitality Management System to LeisureLink’s global distribution network of top online travel channels like Expedia, Booking.com, and Priceline as well as all the major GDS players and travel sites to maximize bookings. Users of SMS will be able to activate LeisureLink as a channel partner to build and manage their property listings and distribute data to the LeisureLink network. LeisureLink will automatically receive property details including descriptions, amenities, photos, availability, bedroom data, rates, and nightly restrictions. Each time information is updated, the new content streams from SMS|Host to LeisureLink. This two-way integration enables LeisureLink to pass guest data, including travel dates, back into SMS|Host.
“Springer-Miller is thrilled with the expanded capabilities the integration of LeisureLink with our SMS|Host Hospitality Management System will bring to our clients,” said Victor Vesnaver, Senior Vice President, Sales and Marketing for Springer-Miller Systems. “LeisureLink presents the broadest array of lodging channels targeted at the specific market our clients serve. The vacation rental market is hungry for access to customers like ours, and we are eager to assist them in maximizing their revenue potential and exposure.”
With access to 80 million visitors per month, LeisureLink is the preeminent vacation rental technology leader. The company is a recognized industry pioneer, with a full suite of next generation online connectivity tools including yield management, booking engines and distribution to enable vacation rental managers and owners to maximize bookings online, offline, anywhere.
Julian Castelli, CEO of LeisureLink noted, “LeisureLink offers a suite of proprietary services and technology that are a perfect fit for SMS customers. Vacation rental channels reach a different audience than traditional OTA’s, and the commission structure is more favorable to the property managers, increasing margins and profitability. By leveraging our extensive industry experience and best-in-class systems capabilities, we are confident the added exposure will keep them ahead of the competition and generate more business.”
