BookingSync, the French vacation rental software for professionals, is launching a partnership with Veepee to offer a new distribution channel to its customers (agencies, managers). This new collaboration will also complement Veepee's travel offer in France. A partnership which reinforces BookingSync's position as a key partner for vacation rental professionals.
BookingSync supports Veepee voyage in the launch of its vacation rental category
Already a partner of many major travel distribution players (Airbnb, Booking.com, Expedia and Vrbo-Abritel) and payment gateways (Stripe, Ogone, Paypal), BookingSync vacation rental software is now collaborating with Veepee, the European leader in event-based sales. The start-up will be the technological partner of Veepee travel for the creation of its vacation rental category. This is a new product line that allows Veepee to offer its French members an ever more complete range of services.
As a result, BookingSync's professional clients (agencies, managers) will be able to take advantage of a new distribution channel by offering their services to Veepee's French members. Eventually, the service will also be extended to other Veepee voyage sites in Europe.
BookingSync has a very strong relationship with its sales channels. For example, the software is one of 10 partners certified "Elite" by Expedia, top 3 worldwide for Airbnb and "Best Overall Performing Provider" by Booking.com.
“We are very pleased to partner with BookingSync to offer vacation rentals to our members in France, enriching our existing offer of trips, residences, clubs, hotels, leisure parks, premium and exclusive experiences offered daily on Veepee.” underlines Nicolas Liogier, CEO of Veepee voyage.
BookingSync, a French start-up pioneer in the management of 630,000 vacation rentals in France
BookingSync was born in 2009 from a realisation by Sebastien Grosjean: managing short-term rentals is time consuming. This entrepreneur knows exactly what he is talking about. Indeed, since his childhood, his parents have managed several rental properties in the Hautes-Alpes, in Provence, as well as in Greece on the island of Leucade. In order to solve this dilemma, Sébastien Grosjean used his training as a web developer to create a centralized and autonomous booking management system to save time and rent more. The goal was to make life easier for vacation rental owners, managers and agencies.
This desire to help property managers is reflected in the very constitution of the company. For example, a part of the profits is transmitted to solidarity, humanitarian and environmental causes and the company is owned by more than 200 investors with very different profiles (property managers, masons, business owners...).
Depuis 2020, BookingSync propose également le service Smily, une plateforme à destination des particuliers souhaitant se focaliser sur l’expérience voyageurs. En effet, Smily simplifie notamment la gestion de leurs locations en connectant chaque propriété à plus de 1 000 sites internet. Le logiciel soutient ainsi de manière simple et gratuite les propriétaires des 630 000 locations saisonnières en France, sur les 3,6 millions de résidences secondaires.
BookingSync is a complete, 100% online solution providing the key features for vacation rental professionals. Various tools are available to accompany them throughout the process of managing their properties (creation of a dedicated website, calendar management, centralized messages, payment gateways, etc.). Customers can then extend BookingSync's core functionality through its many partners (dynamic pricing software, connected locks, guest welcome experiences...). An API (Application Programming Interface) also allows each customer to perfectly interconnect their existing system with BookingSync.
Since 2020, BookingSync also offers Smily; a platform for individual owners wishing to focus on guest experience. Smily simplifies the management of their rentals by connecting each property to over 1,000 websites. The software supports the owners of 630,000 seasonal rentals in France, out of the 3.6 million total second homes, in a simple and free way.
"The COVID-19 crisis has changed habits and the opportunities within travel. A partnership with Veepee, a player in event-based sales, adds an incredible strength for all short-term rental agencies via BookingSync. The visibility acquired through Veepee members in France allows agencies of all sizes to offer their owners a complement to their existing distribution with global players such as Airbnb, Booking.com and Abritel." explains Sebastien Grosjean, founder of BookingSync.
Conceived in 2009 and officially established in 2014, BookingSync is short-term rental management software for professionals imagined by Sébastien Grosjean, who has been in the industry since his childhood. At its creation, the start-up raised just under 1 million euros in just 15 days from 160 investors. Since then, BookingSync has raised four more rounds of funding and in 2020 developed a new vacation rental management service for individuals: Smily. The company now has active employees in 17 countries and is positioning itself as a global reference in the industry. To date, BookingSync has achieved a sales volume of more than 1 billion euros and is active in 76 countries.
In 2001, vente-privee shook up consumer behaviour by creating the concept of event-based sales on the Internet: branded products sold in limited quantities, for a limited period of time (between 3 and 5 days), offered at a significant discount and presented in a qualitative manner. In 2019, following the success of its European development strategy initiated in 2006, vente-privee changed its name to Veepee, a global brand present in 10 countries.
From a generalist specializing in online clearance sales for major brands, Veepee has become a multi-specialist, expert in all the sectors where it has a presence: Fashion, Home and Decoration, Accessories, Sports, Children, Travel, Leisure, Beauty, Wine and Gastronomy. A partnership with 7,000 brands allows them to offer prices with significant discounts (-50 to -70%) compared to recommended retail prices. With 5,000 employees and 66 million members worldwide, Veepee achieved consumer sales of €3.8 billion including VAT in 2020.
