Integración con Airbnb

At LobbyPMS, the perfect software for small and medium-sized accommodations of all types, we announce excellent news for all our clients in Latin America: We have signed our API integration agreement with Airbnb! This translates into a benefit for all current and future users, as now the management of the property in Airbnb will be much easier to carry out and update from LobbyPMS.

During the last quarter of 2021 our development team will be working hand in hand with the Airbnb team on the connection and thus, officially in December 2021, we will launch the corresponding connection for all our clients. As soon as everything is working properly, we will be contacting each of our clients to assure they make use of this great tool.

What is an API?

An API (the abbreviation for Application Programming Interfaces) is an “Integration Programming Interface”, which translates into a set of technological programming rules and protocols that allows the two parts of an application to work in a coordinated way and without communication problems. Precisely, thanks to the operation of the API, we can make our software work together and without interruptions with the information we have in LobbyPMS and Airbnb.

Las personas encargadas de trabajar en esta conexión son los programadores de cada una de las empresas. En esta parte del proceso es necesario realizar trabajo técnico que después se traducirá en algunos clicks para que las cuentas queden conectadas de forma correcta para cada uno de los usuarios.The people in charge of working on this connection are the software developers of each of the companies. In this part of the process it is necessary to carry out technical work that will later translate into a few clicks so that the accounts are correctly connected for each of the users.
