Finland-Based Toristy Partners with Redeam to Bring Distribution Connectivity to Hundreds of Experience Operators
Partnership allows the in-destination sales and res tech platform to bypass countless manual labor hours; piggybacks on existing Redeam relationships
Boulder, CO (May 12, 2020) – Redeam, the leading and only independent global connectivity stack with digitized channel management and voucher redemption/reconciliation solutions for the Experiences industry, and Toristy, a software solution for white-labeling and facilitating the sale of in-destination activities, today announced a joint partnership to bring the reach and connectivity of Redeam’s distribution network to Toristy’s clients. Toristy values Redeam position as a neutral player in the connectivity and channel management Experiences sector, its pre-existing integration with Reserve with Google, and the deep background its key team members have in solving digitization issues that confronted the hotel space a decade ago. Toristy’s client guidance strategy for post-COVID-19 travel re-emergence focuses on sell locally, sell direct, and sell through the right distribution partnerships, the latter of which it will depend on Redeam to facilitate.
“Toristy has taken a noteworthy unique approach to building its platform and solution,” said Redeam CEO Melanie Meador. “It’s been important to Redeam to maintain its position as an independent, unbiased player in channel management technology for activities and attractions. That’s why it’s so gratifying that Toristy appreciates this value, too.” Added Martin Harlow, Redeam’s Director of Strategic Partnerships and Business Development, “Now that Reserve with Google has officially been moved into the Google Travel Group, it has made Redeam’s existing integration with them even more valuable to Toristy’s key objective.”
“We already have onboarded thousands of services across hundreds of small suppliers in numerous countries. If we had to connect to all of them ourselves it would take months of man hours,” said Toristy CEO Steve Jackson. “Our mission is to make tour and activity operators famous locally. They don’t even need to use our reservation software to benefit from our solution, and we appreciate that Redeam also maintains independence as a third-party channel manager so that we can deal direct with our own customers.”
