Channel manager NextPax has integrated its technology to enable property managers to offer more than one room type or unit per property on Airbnb.
NextPax can provide hotel or ‘condotel’ style inventory through the connection to the global sharing economy giant.
The firm said property managers were not, until recently, able to list more than one unit or property per address on Airbnb due to “technical limitations”.
But with its integration, different rooms at one address can be listed separately, with rates and availability updated and automatically synchronized.
NextPax says this development allows boutique hotels, B&Bs and holiday parks that offer ‘unique guest experiences’ to be accepted on Airbnb as their inventory, content, rates and availability can be synchronized in a two-way connection.
Robert van der Mast, chief technology officer at NextPax, said: “Currently we are one of the first channel managers able to provide a multi-unit/category type solution that synchronizes room type inventory, rates and availability between Airbnb and the reservation system.
“Our technology can automatically build properties from the PMS onto Airbnb, maximizing efficiency and reducing time to market.”
NextPax says it will soon be connecting “significant hotel inventory” to its platform, adding to its current portfolio of more than 600,000 vacation rentals and specialty lodgings.
