April 18th, 2018 - SmartHOTEL, a channel management software company based in the Netherlands, is happy to announce that they will be supporting Hotel con Corazón, a social enterprise that invests 100% of its accommodation’s profits in the education of the countries they are active in.
Over the past four years, Hotel con Corazón has supported 250 children in education programs in Nicaragua and now they are expanding their plans to Mexico and Costa Rica. Hotel con Corazón is growing rapidly and receiving many bookings, which makes it a great time to start with a channel management solution that has seamless two-way integration with the best OTAs and other distribution platforms.
This is an exciting year for Hotel con Corazón as next to the imminent opening of their 2nd hotel in Oaxaca, Mexico next month they will also participate in the Booking.com Accelerator Program, on the recommendation of SmartHOTEL Partner Manager Derreck Weterings. The Booking.com Accelerator Program supports scale-ups dedicated to sustainable tourism through a 3-week event, culminating with an opportunity to pitch for grants of up to €500,000.
"We have known Hotel con Corazón for quite some time now. We always wanted to contribute to their great cause in any way we can” says Derreck Weterings from SmartHOTEL, "which I believe is more than providing software. We are very happy that Hotel Con Corazón has made it to the top 10 of the Booking.com Accelerator Program. We wish them the best of luck with their opening in Mexico and the Accelerator program coming up in May."
Marcel Zuidhof, Co-Founder of Hotel con Corazón says:
"I think it is incredible to have software partners who are investing in our cause and want to help by sharing their expertise. It couldn't be a better time for us to start with Channel Management. As the booking industry and online channels are rapidly evolving, it is very important to have a channel management provider that can offer quality integrations with booking channels and deliver dedicated support."
