With competitors like Airbnb nipping at their heels, hotels are rolling out experiences to their most faithful customers that go far beyond extra nights and room upgrades. Marriott, with 30 hotel brands, including Starwood and Ritz-Carlton, is working with Aeturnum client PlacePass to offer guests one-of-a-kind activities and tours.
The Aeturnum team is providing custom software development services, connecting PlacePass’s world-leading meta-search engine for travel experiences to providers of tours and travel experiences to gather relevant inventory, submit recommendations, complete bookings, transact payments, and manage user accounts. With the help of its Athiva Accelerator platform, Aeturnum was able to develop and go live with the PlacePass platform in just under 4 months. More details.
