Cloudbeds expands Hospitality Management Suite with Marketplace, new Groups feature, and regional payment partnerships
At ITB Berlin, Cloudbeds announces the expansion of its hospitality management suite with the launch of its Marketplace and the release of new features and partnerships. Through its powerful and simple suite of tools, Cloudbeds gives all properties, regardless of size, access to the best hospitality management technology. This means hoteliers and hosts can grow reservations and automate their workflows with confidence and ease.
Cloudbeds is accelerating global expansion in all areas of the organization with more than 50 open positions in the first half of 2019 alone. Cloudbeds’ major new product enhancements and partnerships include the following:
The Cloudbeds Marketplace is a curated hub for hoteliers to discover and connect to the best-in-class third-party apps and services. The Cloudbeds Marketplace is built right into the Cloudbeds’ hospitality management suite. With a click of a button, hoteliers have access to new tools designed to help them create the best guest experiences and improve operational efficiencies.
The Marketplace includes categories like reputation management, restaurant point of sale, guest management, sales/marketing CRM, guest communications, metasearch and more. All apps are seamlessly integrated with Cloudbeds’ hospitality suite and are fully vetted and approved by Cloudbeds.
“Cloudbeds has revolutionized what connectivity means for hoteliers and hosts,” says Sebastien Leitner, Director of Global Partnerships. “Connecting technologies used to be intimidating and expensive. Cloudbeds has changed that with one simple easy-to-use system.”
The Cloudbeds Marketplace is now available to Cloudbeds’ Premier and Enterprise tier customers.
Cloudbeds’ new module Groups gives hoteliers the functionality to grow and manage their Group Business from within Cloudbeds’ hospitality management system. The new feature will allow Cloudbeds customers to easily book corporate groups, weddings, travel agents, wholesalers, and meetings. In addition, hoteliers can track how much revenue the groups bring them and easily manage payments for the group.
“Today, group business is flooding into the independent hotel sector because they are looking for unique experiences beyond corporate chains,” says Rafael Blanes Vice President of Sales. “Our customers are perfectly poised to capitalize on this huge opportunity to reach these groups and grow their business.”
Cloudbeds continues to expand its partnerships with top payment processing companies including PayU, the leader in Latin America. Through Cloudbeds, properties are able to automate payments and create a frictionless experience for their guest. Payments, invoicing, email notifications and reporting are seamlessly integrated within Cloudbeds’ hospitality management suite. Cloudbeds will continue to grow global and regional payment partnerships in 2019.
