Leonardo and Achiga join forces to offer premium website and content management solutions that help hotel brands drive more revenue
A conversion driven website is the cornerstone of every hotel brand’s digital marketing strategy. It must attract new guests, retain loyal customers, share up-to-date news and offers – all while looking great, being easy-to-use and telling the brand story in an engaging way.
We’re excited to announce a new partnership with fellow Jonas Hospitality company, Achiga.
Leonardo and Achiga share more than a customer base: we are both globally established technology companies on a mission to help travellers have better travel experiences. Together, we now offer premium website and content management solutions that help hotel brands drive more revenue.
This announcement follows a partnership with another fellow Jonas Hospitality company, Bookassist in fall 2019 and is part of our strategic evolution to become Leonardo Technology Solutions. With two strong website technology partners, Bookassist and now Achiga, we’re starting off the new decade offering a full range of website solutions that meet the needs, expectations, and budgets for individual properties to soft brands, to global hotel chains.
Proven technology, grounded in decades of industry experience
Like us, Achiga knows there’s more to a great website than a pretty design. The technology behind it matters. Achiga’s content management system is designed specifically for the hospitality industry and has powered thousands of websites over the past 15 years.
“The power of our CMS is in its simplicity and scalability. Our customers describe it as having walk-up usability that allows users of varying skill levels to login and be productive right away. With our robust API connectivity, the CMS also becomes the central platform for managing all of their digital marketing needs,” explains Ian Walker, Director of Product & Design at Achiga.
Driven by technology, committed to customer experience
Achiga is an ideal partner because, like us, they are committed to customer experience and success. That commitment shows in their solutions, which can build a wide range of digital experiences while still remaining accessible and easily adopted by non-technical end users.
It’s a system that scales from beautiful independent properties, to small boutique chains to global, 100+ property brand sites. Built into their solution are capabilities for:
- Easily creating, managing, and promoting loyalty programs, special offers, and on-site rooms and amenities
- Seamlessly integrating with the 3rd party systems hoteliers already use to manage and market themselves
Similarly, our media management and distribution technology scales to meet the content needs of hotels and hotel groups and chains of any size. Our modular system centralizes media management and distributes hotel images to the channels our customers count on most to generate revenue. We work with both hotel chains and travel channels to create industry-leading content solutions that integrate with other industry-leading solutions like Achiga’s CMS platform.
“With this partnership, 1 + 1 equals more than two. The Achiga platform and Leonardo’s technology work together to provide robust marketing solutions for chains and groups of properties unlike anything available on the market today, offering personalization and deep integrations with existing systems” says Mark Charlinski, CEO Leonardo Worldwide. “We are always looking to adapt and grow, and Achiga’s complementary solution gives us more tools to help our partners create better travel experiences.”
Here’s what this partnership means for hotel chains and groups:
- Proven technology backed by decades of combined experience
- Conversion focused solutions to increase revenue from branded and third-party websites
- Industry-leading static content distribution, feeding brand sites and third-party channels
- Single source of truth for hotel imagery and website management
- Centralize or decentralize brand management to improve workflows
“This is a partnership that just makes sense. I’m excited for both companies to utilize the other’s strengths to boost our hotel chain partners’ potential going forward,” says Paul Gillard, President at Achiga.
Achiga and Leonardo are committed to making travel better. We are pairing Leonardo’s marketing services, image management and distribution solutions with Achiga’s innovative digital experience system. Working together, we give hospitality providers a true partner to increase revenue with beautiful, conversion-driven websites and content management solutions, all powered by the most robust technology available today.
