“Ticknovate has recognized (early on) that part of their competitive advantage and future growth contributor will be their ability to offer new and existing customers a proper Channel Manager to help provide seamless 3rd party distribution,” says Justin Turner, Rezdy’s Senior Director of Channel Management. Rezdy was the first to offer a Channel Manager solution for the Experience industry, providing ticketing software & suppliers the ability to connect with resellers & manage those connections with powerful tools that save time, automate processes and streamline business operations.
Siteminders recent report on hotel booking trends reveals that hoteliers could increase bookings by up to 40% by partnering with five or more channels & the same can be assumed for the Experience Industry. This partnership comes at a great time as Ticknovate customers will be able to make the most of their desired target markets by distributing products across the largest network of reseller channels, including OTA’s where travelers can package activities, attractions & experiences with their hotel bookings.
Ticknovate's Managing Director, Yiannis Maglaras, says, “Since our launch in 2019, we have been building a new suite of feature sets that allow our customers to not only manage versatile inventory and experiences but to also enhance and extend their offering via a simple but powerful user interface. Distribution via indirect channels has always been supported by Ticknovate, however, with the release of Ticknovate 2.0 it was important that we partner with a channel management solution that has the same ambitions and focus; to connect and empower the experience economy. This integration now exposes our customers' experiences to the industry’s largest and most diverse reseller network and is the perfect complement to the Ticknovate platform.”
