It is pretty amazing how quickly digital tools are changing the global hospitality business. It was not too long ago when small hotels had to complete on their own. Then came the platforms like booking.com. They have been pretty good at channeling bookings, but they tend to lock you into their ecology. Now TripAdvsior has a new service called Tripconnect that may give more control back to the small operators. We are setting up tripconnect and I will post on how this goes.
