it's been a busy year at DHISCOWhile our technology team has been working diligently to fine-tune our new and improved suite of products, our sales team continues to sign up new partners to expand the global reach of our more than 100,000 hotel customers.
These new partners represent businesses around the world, some offering creative new distribution options. Others are well-established travel sellers who are upgrading their systems to ensure their customers have access to the best, most reliable, real-time rates that only DHISCO can offer.
Recently, we announced a partnership with Inspirato, a leading luxury hospitality company, which will give its members a real-time, online connection for booking specially negotiated rates within Inspirato’s curated collection of luxury hotels around the world.
Under the new partnership, Inspirato members will gain access to live hotel partner availability, rates and inventory within the company’s rapidly growing hotel portfolio as well as the ability to make real-time bookings online. Prior to the partnership with DHISCO, hotel bookings made through the Inspirato website often had to be confirmed manually by Inspirato staff.
We also recently partnered with Jetaport, a booking technology and marketplace that provides discounted group hotel reservations, to expand its offerings.
Another new partner is Suiteness, a new booking site that is dedicated to helping travelers find luxury rooms that provide unique experiences.
And we welcomed three new Asia-Pacific partners.
ANZCRO, Australia’s largest wholesaler for travel to New Zealand, selected us to move its business online.
Based on the Gold Coast in Queensland, Australia, 25-year-old ANZCRO has operated mostly under a traditional wholesale model. We are pleased to be working with them as they grow their wholesale and retail channels, with access to the special hotel rates that are run exclusively through our channel.
Also new to the DHISCO family is Asia Miles, a subsidiary of Cathay Pacific and Asia’s leading travel rewards program, which is using our technology to connect its members with their partner hotels.
Finally, we are excited to start working with Excite Holidays, a wholesaler working to expand its sales to the travel agent community beyond its current source markets in Australia, New Zealand and the United Kingdom.
We extend a warm welcome to all of our new partners and look forward to continuing growing our global DHISCO family.
