Hospitable becomes first STR PMS for no-integration third-party tech tools access

Its powered by its API

Holiday rental software provider Hospitable has announced the launch of Hospitable Connect, making it the first PMS in the world to provide third-party tech platforms with direct access to online travel agents (OTAs) without an integration.

Powered by Hospitable’s API, Hospitable Connect facilitates connection that enables tech providers to leverage their customers’ OTA reservation data, even if the hosts themselves are not yet a PMS user. 

Hosts can now take advantage of a wider range of tech tools, which would normally only be available to those with a portfolio large enough to warrant a PMS subscription. 

It will allow bespoke tech stacks to be built and have more apps to choose from, hosts can select the right tools to help them solve individual problems and elevate their operations – signaling a new chapter of accessible technology for the STR industry. 

In turn, Short-term rental tech vendors gain access to host data, including real-time listings, calendars and reservations, as well as historical channel data. 

Vendors can then better understand the needs of its customers, refine services and expand product offering. 

Hospitable Connect is available for Airbnb at the moment but there are plans to extend its services to more OTAs soon. 

Hospitable has an existing partnership with Airbnb and leverages its official API to facilitate this connection, meaning vendors are not connected directly to Airbnb’s API, but to Hospitable Connect’s API. 

Pierre-Camille Hamana, founder and CEO of Hospitable, said: “Hospitable Connect empowers short-term rental tech vendors to build smarter solutions, and hosts are finally able to create their perfect tech stack. 

"By removing the barriers to OTA integration, we're opening the door for vendors to build the tools that really address the specific needs of every host at any budget. 

“With access to a wider spectrum of tools, hosts can compete with the most professional managers," he said.

"Our aim has always been to support self-managers and hosts, and Hospitable Connect is the missing piece of the puzzle for those not quite ready to go down the PMS route but who quickly could once they realize how much easier their lives could be with a full tech stack.”
