3Sixty, an online accommodation booking and management tool for business and relocation travel, has announced its partnership with Hotelbeds, the B2B travel technology company.

A direct API between 3Sixty and Hotelbeds, according to the announcement, will unlock access for 3Sixty clients to over 300,000 hotels in more than 195 countries worldwide. The integration, according to the announcement, marks a significant diversification of the 3Sixty network, which already comprises one million “alternative accommodation’” options such as serviced apartments and aparthotels.

3Sixty’s technology, according to the company, removes the need for travel buyers and guests to make “exhausting” back-and-forth comparisons of housing features, compliance and pricing. A simple search shows the live availability of accommodation options, and searches can also automatically filter down those options to comply with a customer’s company travel policies.

Carrie Hartman, chief revenue officer at 3Sixty, said that as market demand for business travel and relocation is rising, the company is actively widening its supply network to meet increasing demand. The partnership with Hotelbeds, she said, is an important step in this endeavor. 3Sixty will always champion alternative accommodations, said Hartman, “but we also recognize that different travelers have different needs, and we want to cater to all of them."
