Avvio is proud to announce the launch of Allora, the world’s first direct booking platform powered by artificial intelligence (AI).
Launching in October, Allora will be the first AI-powered direct booking platform for hotels and accommodation providers and will use machine learning to constantly improve the booking experience and increase conversions. Allora focuses primarily on driving direct bookings and guest loyalty by orchestrating better online interactions between hotels and guests.
The place to be. That’s the tagline of The HarborClub, the brand new property due to open on the Caribbean island of Saint Lucia this autumn. Classing itself as a four-star property with five-star customer service, the hotel will offer 115 rooms and suites and cater to a wide range of guests with a wealth of facilities, services and food to satisfy every taste. Situated in Rodney Bay next to the Marina, the property’s guests will wake up to views of the enormous free-form swimming pool and yachts dancing on the Caribbean Sea beyond. It provides guests with everything they could possibly want, living up to its tagline.
Avvio is thrilled to announce we have now integrated with Guestline to improve efficiency and revenue for accommodation providers.
You'll now be able to manage your accounts, inventory and bookings easily and efficiently by making use of the new two-way Guestline integration. The interface will ensure that all the information about rates, restrictions and availability can be instantly exchanged from Guestline to Avvio Convert booking engine and vice versa.
As digitalisation advances and accommodation providers increasingly strive to reduce their dependence on online travel agencies (OTAs), it has become even more essential for hoteliers to keep up with digital marketing trends. This can prove challenging as the expectations, needs and behaviours of travellers are constantly evolving, with Google constantly updating its rules and algorithms as well. It seems if you stay static for even one season your business will fall behind your competitors and lose appeal with potential guests.
To optimise your strategy for the remainder of the year, here are three digital marketing tips from Avvio’s in-house digital agency:
