LeisureLink has joined Yelp as on of Inc.’s top 500|5000 fastest growing private companies, according to news from the company. An online travel tech company, LeisureLink points so called “big data” at the travel industry with innovations like Marketspan™ Guest Generation System.
At a time when online market analysis and revenue management solutions could surely shine, it seems no surprise that a company wielding cutting edge analytics and control would get competitive in this space. Hotels and resort entities need every advantage possible to remain competitive during these tough times and a turnkey revenue management system is one crucial tool. LeisureLink CEO Erik Hovanec had this to say about the Inc. selection:
“We’re thrilled to be ranked so highly among the many impressive, fast-growing private companies in the U.S. LeisureLink — and our proprietary Marketspan Guest Generation System for vacation properties — has seen tremendous growth and we plan to keep this momentum going with long-term strategic dedication to democratizing big data in the travel industry so that small and medium-sized businesses can finally use it to increase bookings, and excel in the marketplace.”
Founded back in 2006, LeisureLink empowers independent hotels and vacation rental properties with access to tools funded by none other than Wyndham Worldwide, and used by some of the world’s leading hoteliers. Combined with ABetterStay.com for marketing potential for properties, the Marketspan platform is quite unique among competitive products. The only missing elements being marketing and site Mojo such as companies WIHP Hotels, HotelTravelCheck, or even O’Rourke Hospitality offer.
Interestingly, the Chairman of LeisureLink’s Board is Dave Berkus who also founded Gamespy, IP3 Networks, Computerized Lodging Systems, and serves as an advisor to Vokle and others. The reader may be familiar with Berkus as a speaker or consultant.
