Use Travelotopos to be accepted in Viator.
Being a Travelotoper will not guarantee that you will become a Viator supplier, however Viator prefers tour operators using a real-time booking software provider that is integrated with them, as it will allow Viator to provide a better service to their own customers (thus, we strongly recommend you to mention Travelotopos in the application process). Besides that, there are two other reasons to use Travelotopos to integrate with Viator.
Firstly, when you receive a booking from Viator, your work has only just started. They’ll send you the customer information and the booking details, but you’ll need to manually import them into your manifest, reports and CRM. With Travelotopos, all of this information is automatically pushed to all of these platforms. This saves you time and also ensures that you never forget a customer or forget a payment.
Secondly , When building your distribution network to 5 or even 500 agents, you’ll find out, managing this network is a lot of work. Travelotopos’ Channel Manager simplifies this. It doesn’t matter how many agents you have, you can update your availability for all of them in one login. This allows you to have a large distribution network. With Travelotopos, you can connect with most agents in the tour and activity industry. Travelotopos allows you to update your availability from one screen, which saves you time and enables you to get more agent connections and fill up your total capacity.
