AccorHotels is on an acquisition trail, as barely days after its VeryChic purchase it has now bought over Availpro, a European leader in providing digital services to independent hotels and has more than 6,500 clients.
The acquisition of Availpro, which has more than 6.500 clients, is expected to complement AccorHotels' "digital factory", the company said in its press release.
In 2015, the hospitality giant had acquired Fastbooking, which has more than 2,000 independent hotels listed on AccorHotels.com and works with more than 4,000 clients worldwide to increase direct bookings.
Steven Daines, CEO, new business at AccorHotels, said: "The acquisition of Availpro enables the group to reach another milestone in its transformation by establishing the first B2B services division focused on hoteliers in Europe. Its combination with Fastbooking, now more than ever before, positions AccorHotels as an hotelier serving the hoteliers.”
