The integration with Smartbox Group, recently added to the Dingus connectivity catalogue, is now ready for our clients, so that the hotels that work with us can include their offer as ‘gifts’ from the leading European box. In fact, the sale of hotel packages and extra nights of stays on these, rural, urban, themed breaks, etc. has become one of the most important claims of the Dublin-based company.
Smartbox’s philosophy is that an experience is the best gift, and based on this key idea to offer unforgettable memories, they developed their business concept “reaching an annual volume of almost 500 million euros, selling 7 million experiences annually in 11 European countries: Germany, Belgium, Denmark, Spain, France, Italy, Netherlands, United Kingdom, Republic of Ireland, Sweden and Switzerland“. These experiences are grouped into “stays, adventure, wellness, gastronomy and magical moments”. The type of accommodation they work with includes paradors, bubble hotels, castles and palaces and 4 and 5* hotels.

Connectivities are an essential and strategic part of Dingus
We are dedicated to each of them in an intensive way, ensuring not only that they meet the needs and priorities of our customers, but also that they offer the maximum possible functionality and profitability. As a technological partner of the hotel establishment for commercial management – from availability distribution to reservation management – and taking into account all the technical evolution of the sector, we consider as connectivities from the services added to the web (such as chatbots and sales reinforcement messages), to sales management tools, reservations and collections, through sales and distribution channels.
We have our own integration protocols, something that allows us to adapt to the technical, commercial and operational needs of each sales channel, making the most of the functionalities of our tools. And since we are constantly evolving them according to the needs of the market and our clients, we have the agility to transfer those product and market advances to our integrations. By betting on integrations based on our APIs, we achieve greater integration agility and the incorporation of sales channels to our portfolio, exceeding 500 connectivities.
