…and another one! Just three days after being recognized by Airbnb as a Preferred Software Partner, we’re delighted to announce that we have achieved Vrbo Elite Partner status!
This is a significant milestone for Lodgify as this prestigious status is reserved for only a select group of vacation rental software providers that meet strict performance, quality, and customer service criteria.
It is the highest partnership status that Vrbo awards to their connectivity partners, and it demonstrates our commitment to excellence and outstanding customer service while confirming our place as a leader in vacation rental management software.
However, more importantly, it’s also a big win for our users. As a result of this partnership, Lodgify customers can expect to take advantage of several new benefits and resources.
Alexandre Humeau, VP of Product at Lodgify, commented on the news saying, “We are very pleased to have secured the Vrbo Elite Partner status. This reinforces our partnership and supports our mission of empowering our hosts to get started and grow their businesses. We will continue to focus on delivering innovative features that improve our integration with Vrbo.”
What does Elite Partner status mean for you
For Lodgify customers, the benefits of this partnership are significant. Part of the Expedia Group, Vrbo is one of the largest vacation rental platforms in the world, connecting millions of guests with hosts who offer short-term accommodations. As our channel manager provides seamless integration with Vrbo, our newly acquired Elite Partner status means users can enjoy the following:
- Increased API connectivity (our connection seamlessly integrates booking rates, guest data, descriptions, and other information)
- A reliable and monitored connection
- Faster solutions to common problems
- Added support and expertise provided by both Lodgify and Vrbo
- Opportunities to participate in special promotions and marketing campaigns.
Additionally, Elite Partners are recognized by Vrbo as providers who can deliver exceptional service to hosts. This recognition can give hosts peace of mind, knowing they are using a trusted and high-performing vacation rental software provider.
What does Elite Partner status mean for Lodgify
Being an Elite Connectivity Partner means we’ve joined an exclusive group of top-performing Vrbo connectivity providers who offer the highest-quality connection to Vrbo and comprehensive functionality.
Many channel management tools integrate with Vrbo but are unable to deliver when it comes to seamless connection, lag times for synchronization, and other technical issues.
We were judged on several technical and performance criteria, confirming that our software:
- Improves traveler experiences on Vrbo
- Develops software integrations to a high standard with advanced tools and features
- Provides a quality technical connection to Vrbo with a reliable user experience
- Delivers exceptional performance outcomes on Vrbo to their clients
- Engages with the Vrbo team to continually optimize tools and capabilities
Lodgify’s achievement of Vrbo Elite Partner status is also an indication of our continued growth and success in the vacation rental industry, and it’s a great step forward from last year’s Preferred Connectivity partner status.
As more and more travelers turn to vacation rentals as an alternative to traditional hotels, the demand for vacation rental software solutions continues to grow.
The recognition from Vrbo consolidates our position as a PMS leader that provides an all-in-one solution that helps hosts manage their properties more effectively and efficiently.
We’d like to thank Vrbo for recognizing Lodgify with this prestigious partner status; however, we’d especially like to thank you, our users, for continuing to trust us to help you grow and manage your vacation rental businesses.
