Today, eviivo, a leading hospitality software company has announced the launch of eviivo Collective to recognise unique, notable and luxury independent properties worldwide. As part of eviivo’s 10-year anniversary milestone of eviivo Suite, eviivo Collective is designed to celebrate, support and raise awareness for independently owned properties, as well as boutique hoteliers, hosts and owners who work in the independent accommodation sector.
“For over a decade, our mission has always focused on prioritising and supporting the hardworking hoteliers, hosts and owners of independent properties, and today, we’re incredibly proud to launch eviivo Collective, one of the most groundbreaking programs in our company’s history,” says eviivo CEO Michele Fitzpatrick. “Our vision with eviivo Collective is to shine light on our incredible properties — many that speak for themselves as award winners or deemed the best in their region — and to go above and beyond with our commitment to the independent accommodation sector. Most importantly, we consider all our properties part of the eviivo family, so we’re thrilled to give them recognition they deserve in such a competitive landscape.”
This is the first time in history a travel tech company has launched a program designed to promote and advocate the independent accommodation sector, working with its partners — such as online travel agencies (OTAs) and other hospitality brands — to showcase independently owned properties, many that are considered among the best in the world.
“Eviivo is more than just the best software,” says eviivo CTO Eric White. “We’ve truly championed the independent accommodation sector from day one, whether through our Stay For Heroes initiative to establish free rooms for frontline workers during Covid-19 or our renowned eviivo Awards. With eviivo Collective, like-minded, independent property owners can feel proud as part of a community and be recognised for their commitment to the industry — and their resilience, especially after three challenging years of the pandemic. We’re stronger together, and eviivo Collective offers a sense of belonging and empowerment.”
To celebrate eviivo Suite’s 10-year anniversary, the company is taking its commitment to the independent accommodation sector further by officially registering a global “Independent Accommodations Day.” First launched in 2018, Independent Accommodations Day was part of eviivo’s renowned “International Week of the Host,” where properties ran flash sales and celebrated through promotions and social media .
Independent Accommodations Day, a day of recognition, occurs globally and annually every March 24 — a day everyone is invited to participate and recognise independently-owned properties and their workforce worldwide. #HappyIADay
“With eviivo Collective, we’re extending considerable support beyond customer service to our property owners, hosts and hoteliers as they continue to rise above from the impact of the pandemic,” says Melanie Wexler, Head of Global Services. “All of our property owners have an incredible story to tell, and we offer them a well-deserved platform.”
All eviivo properties worldwide are automatically part of eviivo Collective.
eviivo Collective is free with no cost to be part of the program.
