Stayker Launches First True SaaS Application Bringing Online Travel Bookings to Events of all Types
11/14/2019
Stayker, a female-owned, US based travel software company, is pleased to announce the launch of Stayker, a SaaS, online hotel booking platform developed by former hospitality execs. Stayker seamlessly allows events of all types the ability to offer a hotel booking experience under their own brand, minimizing complicated hotel contracts, painful rooming list processes, and costly software development.

Event planning and hotel bookings have always gone hand-in-hand. The process hasn’t changed much in decades: from RFP to site selection and even contracting. Securing those much-needed hotels is a time-consuming process that typically comes with performance liabilities for the organizer. Hoteliers rightfully protect those valuable room night assets, while their inventory and rates reside in the GDS for public consumption.

With Stayker, planners have access to over 650,000 hotels around the world within minutes, and hotel reservations occur through a GDS based live online inventory model. No attrition fees. No cut-off dates; just access to available inventory anytime.

“Few industries have seen such limited innovation in technology as the group & event travel industries,” comments Amy Barker,” CEO & Co-founder of Stayker. “The Stayker platform levels the playing field for those who want to offer travel bookings - without inherent liability. Stayker also makes those bookings quantifiable for the local Destination Management Organization”.

Sign-up is simple, online at Stayker.com, with fees to utilize the platform starting at ZERO. You can handpick hotels you want to offer, or leave it open to all hotels and resorts in the area. Add the booking link to your website, social media etc. No downloading required; customers click on the link to search, select, book, and confirm their hotel reservations. It’s that easy!

After the event, planners may receive a percentage of the commissions earned per actualized hotel booking; no IATA number required. Stayker’s online platform is particularly ideal for first-time events, overflow hotels, post cut-off bookings and sports events.

Highlights & Features of Stayker:
  • Hotel bookings under your brand, backed by Stayker technology.
  • Sign up in minutes, get bookings online in hours.
  • Access to over 650,000 hotels worldwide.
  • Customizations available.
“Event organizers want to provide a positive online booking experience to be competitive, and if you are not living up to the standard set by the big players like Expedia and Priceline, then you can’t expect your customers to book with you,” states Talley Richey. “Stayker provides the technology you need to quickly get online, be competitive and eliminate the stress of managing room blocks, attrition, and last-minute bookings.”

About Stayker
Founded in 2019, Stayker is a female owned, US based travel software company founded by former hospitality industry execs offering online travel bookings to events, facilities, and others eager to engage with their customers through travel. The Stayker platform is a premier software as a service (or SaaS) built specifically for the group and event travel industry, making it possible for companies and events to sell travel online under their unique brand.
