Hotels benefit from reputation management tools and services powered by the world’s largest travel site.

Revinate, the premiere social media solution for the hospitality industry, announced today that it has become an authorized partner of TripAdvisor, the world’s largest travel site.

By partnering with TripAdvisor, Revinate’s industry-leading solution becomes even more comprehensive, intuitively turning online reviews and social media feedback into business intelligence that hoteliers can act upon.

“With millions of travelers using TripAdvisor to plan the perfect trip, it’s increasingly important for hoteliers to monitor consumer feedback and respond to user reviews,” said Rich Knapp, senior manager of partnerships at TripAdvisor. “Revinate’s authorized use of our data will help its clients gain insight into their customers and improve their hotel operations.”

“TripAdvisor content is clearly among the most important measures of hotel guest satisfaction,” said Jay Ashton, co-founder and CEO of Revinate. “TripAdvisor reviews not only provide invaluable feedback to hoteliers, they also impact the booking decisions of millions of travelers. Our partnership with TripAdvisor allows us to analyze the most comprehensive source of hotel reviews and provide hoteliers with the insight and tools they need in order to act upon this rich source of feedback.”

“As a customer-focused organization, we depend on reviews from sites such as TripAdvisor for detailed feedback on our performance,” said J.C.
