Vietnam: VLeisure, a travel network platform, has partnered with Travel Prologue, a hotel direct booking service, to deliver live room rates and inventory to B2B channels.
VLeisure provides front-end marketplace and back-end infrastructure for market players like hotels, suppliers, and travel agencies in over 147 countries.
Travel Prologue has a large inventory of hotels across Asia Pacific including Mandarin Orchard Singapore, Furama Hotels International, and Berjaya Hotels & Resorts. Its platform supports technology solutions adopted by hotels and wholesale agents to facilitate direct connectivity and automate the inventory management processes.
With the partnership, VLeisure is able to provide an open ecology network to its customers, while leveraging on the hotel connectivity services of Travel Prologue.
Phan Le, CEO of VLeisure, said: “An open ecosystem for the travel industry will be the next development in the hotel distribution business. There is no longer a “one man wins” in hotel distribution anymore, making it more of a level playing field. Sharing technology is the way to go and Travel Prologue shares the same ideology with our vision on this. We are delighted to be able to partner with them”.
Managing director of Travel Prologue, Ho Siang Twang, added: “Our B2B hotel direct booking service, Trip Affiliates Network (TA Network), is designed to help hotels and their B2B channels improve their direct bookings with one another. We are excited to work with like-minded partners like VLeisure on the open ecosystem initiative where we can provide our partners with online access to live room rates and inventory”.
