Cloudbeds: The Platform that Energizes the Hospitality Industry

The History

Cloudbeds was born in 2012 from an original idea by co-founders Richard Castle and Adam Harris. While traveling in Brazil, they discovered how challenging it was to book local accommodations: calling to check availability, transferring money to the establishment for reservations, and so on. The desired customer experience was not being met.

Frustrated by this gap, they conceived a platform that would enable any establishment, regardless of size, type, or location, to successfully manage its lodging business.

Since then, Cloudbeds has expanded, participated in four rounds of funding, acquired several companies, and generated billions in revenue for tens of thousands of establishments. Today, they operate in more than 157 countries.

The Technology

Through a cloud-based technology, Cloudbeds seamlessly integrates modules for reservation management, operational efficiency, revenue management, distribution, customer acquisition, and customer engagement into a single, user-friendly system, enhanced by a marketplace of third-party integrations.

From the front desk to the back office, Cloudbeds allows the management of any establishment using a unified platform. More than just a hotel management system, Cloudbeds’ all-in-one solution includes everything needed to handle daily hotel operations, encompassing features such as a reservation system, customer profile management, and much more. Additionally, Cloudbeds provides better visibility into your business through reports and analyses based on customer data.
