Booking Boss, the leading provider of online booking, ticketing and POS solutions in the tourism and attractions sector in the Asia-Pacific region, has signed a landmark deal to provide their channel management solution to VGS ticketing platform SnApp.

VGS clients includes some of the largest attractions in the world that now have the opportunity to connect seamlessly into global distribution networks that allow their customers to book tickets via multiple platforms.

Renee Welsh, Chief Executive - Solutions Group for Booking Boss owner Helix Leisure explains “with changing consumer purchase behaviour for attractions and the increasing emergence of online travel agencies (OTAs) in this sector, it allows for VGS clients to access a global distribution network easily without all the hard work and lengthy timeframes of connecting them one byone, client by client.

“It’s also a win for the consumer who will now be able to view live availability and get instant confirmations to some of the worlds most loved attractions via their preferred OTA, in their language and via their preferred payment method. It’s about making ticketing and booking frictionless for the customer.”

VGS Chief Executive, Paolo Moro added “with the integration of Booking Boss’ Channel Manager, the VGS platform further extends its real-time connection to hundreds of distributors.

“The new option is highly beneficial to our clients, who optimise even more their global visibility and distribution capabilities, and to our client’s guests who have direct access to the latest offers already during their travel schedule and booking.”
