Canadian venue-centric map-based solution provider, Stay22 has partnered with the Belgian hiking platform, Randobel to help its users find the best accommodation for their selected trails with the help of GPX technology. This follows recent partnerships with TIX, TEG and the launch of Stay22’s partner platform, ‘The Hub’ all in the past year.
Christophe Dohn, Founder of Randobel, expanded on why a partnership with Stay22 made sense for Randobel; “Stay22 helps us offer an additional service to our users while also providing a new revenue stream for our organization. Additionally embedding and configuring Stay22 was super easy.”
What’s GPX technology?
GPX is a common GPS data format that allows you to showcase trails and routes. Stay22 integrates this into its solution to show different accommodation options and travel services on a selected route.
This feature is incredibly valuable for platforms like Randobel that displays trails for hiking, cycling…etc, which can now offer a superior experience and service to its users.
As Dohn further states: “Adding GPX files is very practical for a hiking platform like Randobel. Our users can find nearby accommodation around the trail and better plan their trip.”
Meanwhile, for Stay22, Randobel is the perfect partner to show the versatility of its solution and continue to help as many users as possible make the best and smartest travel decisions.
As its CEO Andrew Lockhead describes; “We are seeing a shift towards experience-based travel as we move towards 2021, with activities like hiking and cycling being particularly prominent. This partnership is special to us as Randobel allows Stay22 to meet this new user behavior and continue solving their travel needs.”
