BookingPal announced the acquisition of the Razor-Cloud Vacation Rental Distribution Platform. As a leading technology provider for vacation rental distribution, Razor-Cloud brings an existing relationship with over 700 travel agencies and a current distribution of over 35,000 vacation rental properties in 18 countries to BookingPal. Razor-cloud was started four years ago to make the vacation accommodation marketplace more efficient for the people of this industry. With Razor-Cloud and now BookingPal, vacation rental content is distributed via property management software (PMS) partners to an extensive network of travel professionals including websites, agents, and tours, thereby delivering increased revenue for both property suppliers and distributors.
“The Razor-Cloud vacation rental distribution platform was developed to provide robust channel management for property managers by allowing them to update and manage all of their distribution channesl simultaneously and to make sure every one of their properties is visible across every channel at all times.” Chris Marshall, Founder of Razor-Cloud.
This technology allows BookingPal to provide up-to-the-minute live availability of vacation rentals with superior operations management ability to manage every aspect of the vacation rental process quickly and efficiently for rental property managers and owners as well as Online Travel Agents (OTAs). The capability of working via the Internet around the world through BookingPal’s real-time offerings allows PMS Suppliers, Vacation Rental Managers (VRMs) and Owners, along with OTAs and other Travel Professionals to work together – in a business to business relationship – with greater productivity and effectiveness.
“We are excited to leverage the state of the art software technology platform developed by Razor-Cloud to provide our partners with a platform that enables them to expand their online exposure, maximize their bookings, and increase their revenue.” Alex Aydin, Founder and CEO of BookingPal.
