Leonardo and RateGain Enhance Partnership to Drive Faster Bookings for Channel Partners with an Expanded Distribution Solution
Leonardo is excited to share that we have further strengthened our partnership with RateGain, a leading provider of SaaS solutions for the travel and hospitality industry.
This strengthened partnership will allow demand partners to utilize RateGain’s expertise in textual static content combined with Leonardo’s power in visual media. RateGain is pairing our content distribution capabilities to provide property and room content for up to 250,000+ properties through a single source containing visual and textual content.
Our mutual travel channel partners will now be able to optimize the ingestion of property and room content by identifying and mapping static content with rates leading to optimal delivery of property and room content.
“We’re constantly talking to our channel partners, and they have been signaling us for years that collecting static content is a very intense process.”, says Milos Krsmanovic, VP of Global Sales at Leonardo. “Partnering with RateGain is an outcome of our mutual desire to solve this problem for the hospitality industry – and establish order to what we believe can be a very disjointed experience for everyone. Over the last 24 months, we have redefined how visual content is distributed, and now, with our friends at RateGain, we want to do the same for static content overall.”
In addition to offering static content with 4,000+ attributes in almost 10 languages, DHISCO helps audit content for channel partners as well. This joint Leonardo + RateGain collaboration will automate how partners receive, ingest and display textual content for hundreds of thousands of properties while also receiving all the benefits of Leonardo’s visual distribution solution.
“The Post-COVID guest will rely heavily on content to make more informed decisions, making this partnership critical in the new normal” said Chinmai Sharma, President – Americas at RateGain. “The combination of our descriptive content database with Leonardo’s visual content would considerably improve the experience for channel partners and the travelers. This collaboration will help lay a solid foundation to fundamentally improve the way channels consume and display static content.”
