Providing seamless distribution & channel management
Raleigh, NC, USA, September 7, 2022 – ACME Ticketing, an industry leader in event ticketing technology for attractions, announced its formal partnership with Rezdy, the world’s leading independent online booking and distribution platform for tour, activity, and attraction providers. The agreement between the two companies allows ACME to focus on their primary goal of supplying the best ticketing solutions for current & future customers while also providing access to highly desired distribution tools & services. Rezdy seemed the perfect candidate with their enhanced technology, continued focus on their channel management business and drive to connect & power the experience industry.
ACME ticketing values trusted partnerships that offer innovative service extensions, beyond their core modules. They recognized that utilizing reseller channels to expand reach, awareness and increase revenue is highly desired by suppliers – to complement their direct revenue streams – but can be challenging when not equipped with tools to manage all the connections. Now fully integrated through a single API integration with Rezdy Channel Manager, ACME customers can have access to:
The industry’s largest & more diverse resellers’ network – allowing them to connect to major OTA’s, traditional travel agencies, hotel & concierge desks, inbound tour operators, travel wholesalers, regional tourism bodies, local complimentary businesses and more;A platform to easily manage all their connections, contracts & relationships with the ability to keep track of agreements, digitize offline relationships, and automate reseller commission payments;A live two-way sync allowing for all inventory changes in rates, availability, content, and promotions for all connected channels to be distributed & synchronized across – seamlessly managed in one centralized location.
This partnership therefore unlocks seamless distribution and channel management for ACME customers – a strategy that we’ve seen providing some strong results for big operators in the industry – like Wendella, increasing their revenue by 200% year on year from distribution channels via Rezdy Channel Manager.
“Although Rezdy is known for our booking software, many don’t realize that we offer a standalone channel manager product that can be fully integrated into a supplier’s existing source system. We are thrilled to partner with ACME to help their customers more easily and seamlessly distribute their products through the travel industry’s top resellers. We maintain best-in-class integrations so that ACME can focus on providing the best ticketing software to their customers.” said Justin Turner, Director of Channel Management for Rezdy.
After a few challenging years, the tourism sector is seeing a resurgence of activity with spend on experiences being ~34% above 2019 levels (Mastercard Travel 2022: Trends & Transitions). Travelers are venturing outside their hotels to experience their vacation destination by filling their schedules & spending more on activities and experiences versus material souvenirs. This strategic partnership has come at an ideal time for ACME customers to make the most of this market opportunity – now being able to automate distribution, manage supply and demand more effectively, and ultimately maximize their businesses revenue.
