Bokun Broadens Distribution for its Suppliers to include Viator

Bokun, the cloud based sales, inventory and management software connecting tourism suppliers and resellers, today announced that it has broadened its distribution capabilities with the integration to Viator, a TripAdvisor company and the world's leading resource for tour and activities.

Bokun's online B2B network "The Bokun Marketplace" currently manages thousands of cross-selling and reselling agreements and provides real time fulfillment between suppliers themselves and as well with resellers such as Travel Agents, Tour Operators, OTA's, CVB's and DMO's.

Viator is the leading global tours and activities provider for travelers, delivering online and mobile access to thousands of curated trip activities including tours, attractions, shore excursions and private guides, in more than 1,500 destinations worldwide. Through integration with the Viator Supplier API, Bokun customers have access to distribution through both Viator and TripAdvisor channels.

"The Viator integration is important to the Bokun platform", says Hjalti Baldursson, Chairman and CEO of Bokun, "as now all of the tours and activity suppliers using Bokun who want to have their products represented through Viator will be able to do so in real time as well on Viator and TripAdvisor and still manage distribution of all inventory in one central place."

"The integration with the Viator Supplier API will enable those connected to the Bokun platform to distribute their tours and activities products across Viator and TripAdvisor channels, bringing their client-base of local tour operators closer to more of the travelers they are trying to reach," said Ken Frohling, Vice President of Business Development for Viator. "We are excited about our integration with Bokun and the benefits it provides to both travelers and tour operators worldwide."
