Lodgify has been making waves in the vacation rental industry for quite some time now, and we are delighted to announce that we’ve been recognized by Airbnb as a Preferred Software Partner for the fifth year in a row, demonstrating the strength and reliability of our PMS system.
Lodgify has maintained a fully functioning, two-way connection with Airbnb for numerous years and has continued to expand its integration to achieve the deepest connectivity possible.
We pride ourselves on being one of the best channel managers on the market, which is backed by our many badges, awards, and Preferred Software Partner status from some of the industry’s most prominent players like Airbnb.
VP of Product at Lodgify, Alexandre Humeau, commented on this award, stating, “We are very proud to receive an official acknowledgment from Airbnb as a Preferred Software Partner.” Humeau, as well as the rest of the rapidly growing team of 230+ employees at Lodgify, has worked on driving a connection that gets thousands of hosts connected to the Airbnb community.
He continues, “This certification reinforces Lodgify’s commitment to helping property owners and managers access the deepest connections in order to stay ahead in the vacation rental market and grow their bookings.”
Lodgify covers its bases when it comes to channel connections and has the accolades to back that up. We have also maintained preferred and premier partnership status with Vrbo, Booking.com, and Expedia.
Very few vacation rental software companies achieve Airbnb Preferred Software Partner, let alone preferred partner status from all the major OTAs. Here at Lodgify, we are proud of our four preferred partnerships as one of the most powerful vacation rental software options on the market.
What does it mean to be named Preferred Software Partner by Airbnb?
Airbnb’s Preferred Software Program launched in October 2018 in an attempt to define excellence in connectivity. There are many channel management tools that integrate with Airbnb, but they fall flat in terms of seamless connection and have high lag times for synchronization, among other technical issues.
Airbnb’s Preferred Partner Program recognizes preferred software partners that offer a fully integrated connectivity solution for hosts, such as Lodgify. Some of the minimum requirements for partnership are:
- Full API integration
- Technical performance benchmarks
- Business requirements
What does this mean for vacation rental owners?
Both Airbnb and Lodgify maintain high standards of satisfaction and vow to provide the best-in-class tools for hosts. From Airbnb’s side, hosts who integrate with a robust channel management tool offer a better guest experience.
Lodgify aims to supply the leading vacation rental software in the industry and, within that, a channel manager that effectively integrates with connections like Airbnb. Together, the combination is a powerful toolkit for vacation rental owners to manage, communicate, and grow their reservations.
Because Airbnb is focused on creating the best experience for both host and guest, they maintain high standards for partnership. Faulty products and software solutions just won’t cut it. So, earning the right to Preferred Software Partner status is indicative that Lodgify’s product is the all-in-one solution for Airbnb hosts. Having met all of Airbnb’s requirements, Lodgify demonstrates its commitment to vacation rental owners by obtaining this preferred partnership status.
