Avvio provides hosted booking engine software for hotels and hospitality businesses. Avvio helps customers increase profitability by channelling more direct bookings through their own website.
Avvio’s flagship product, ‘Allora’, is the world’s first AI-powered hotel booking engine. Allora delivers a more personalised experience for each website visitor and improves the user experience of booking direct.
Avvio applies a rigorous, scientific approach to booking conversion and usability, constantly innovating methods to increase revenues for clients via the most cost-effective channel – the hotel’s own website. At a time when hotel industry profitability is under serious threat from high-commission Online Travel Agents (OTAs), Avvio’s software and services directly impact the hotels’ bottom lines as bookings are shifted from OTAs back to the direct channel.
