AltoVita Introduces Instant Bookings for Extended Stays

 

We are beyond excited to introduce a groundbreaking development in AltoVita platform – the launch of multi-rates for SiteMinder operators! This innovative development marks a significant milestone in our quest to enhance and streamline the booking experience for our customers on both AltoSearch and AltoCurate!

A New Era of Instant Booking for Extended Stay

While we've successfully facilitated instant bookings for short stays via multiple integrations with leading channel and property management software providers; the integration of multi-rates with SiteMinder now opens the door for instant bookings for extended stays. This expansion is a significant move towards diversifying our offerings and enhancing the booking experience for longer stays of over 30 days.

Our latest feature is specifically designed to enable instant bookings with properties connected to SiteMinder. The integration of multi-rates into the AltoVita's platform means a more seamless, efficient, and flexible booking process for extended stays, tailored to the diverse needs of our customers.

This development represents a significant step forward in our commitment to enhancing the booking experience for both short and, most importantly, extended stays. We are dedicated to improving this feature and are excited about the positive impact it will have on our users and partners. We are enthusiastic about driving forward with this initiative! - Julia Kichigina, Product Manager at AltoVita

Empowering Hospitality Operators for Extended Stays

Understanding the importance of this feature, we have proactively communicated with our SiteMinder hospitality operators, urging them to start incorporating and mapping their rate plans within the system. This initial step is crucial in enabling the full potential of instant bookings. 

Aiming to bring a Booking.com-like experience to the extended stay market, especially for Global Mobility Lump-Sum travellers, our objective of maximising instant long stay bookings is advancing significantly. This advancement is being driven by the implementation and support of multi-rates for SiteMinder, tailored specifically for extended stays. 

Our initiative goes beyond merely adding a new feature; it represents a strategic effort to broaden our booking options, catering to various needs, including offering negotiated rates for longer-term stays. At present, we're diligently refining the complete workflow of this feature, with essential components already operational. This development is crucial in ensuring we provide an experience akin to Booking.com, characterised by its seamlessness and efficiency, but uniquely tailored for the extended stay segment.

This enhancement is not just about efficiency; it's a part of our larger negotiated rates initiative. For instance, our clients will soon be able to make instant bookings at specially negotiated rates.

The Journey So Far and the Road Ahead

We have already made significant strides by informing SiteMinder-connected hospitality operators about this development, encouraging them to start the process of adding and mapping their rate plans. This initial phase is crucial for the successful implementation of multi-rates and the subsequent benefits it brings to our customers and our Customer Success team.



The introduction of multi-rates in AltoVita's platform is more than just a feature update – it's a leap towards a more connected, efficient, and user-friendly booking ecosystem for extended stay. As we continue to develop and refine this feature, we remain committed to enhancing the booking experience for our users and partners. Stay tuned for more updates as we progress on this exciting journey together!
