HotelRunner is selected as Premier Connectivity Partner for 2022 by Booking.com, the highest tier in the Connectivity Partner Programme.
The program consists of connectivity providers, including channel managers and property management systems (PMS), and is a way Booking.com ensures hoteliers have access to the best products and services when trying to find a provider that best suits their business needs.
Defined by Booking.com “Premier partners are our best connectivity providers. They offer the most advanced systems with the widest range of products and services..”
The Connectivity Partner Program is designed to encourage connectivity providers to take specific actions that benefit the property partners they work with and to acknowledge their success. There are 3 tiers to the program, standard, advanced, and premier. These tiers are based on points provided by Booking.com and each provider gets placed in a tier according to overall performance. “Premier” status is the highest tier and is awarded annually to a very exclusive group of top-performing software providers who offer excellent quality software connections and advanced tools and capabilities.
