Conquer Contracts, Source Smarter

Our Story

A Pioneer & Leader in the Travel Market

 

When we first started in 2017, it was clear to us that there were major inefficiencies in the procurement process from traditional and interruptive crew accommodations procedures. Due to supply chain complexities within the aviation industry, procurement professionals experienced constant challenges in sourcing hotels and ended up overpaying for company lodging as well as finding themselves stuck in the convoluted contract negotiation process. Meanwhile, hoteliers found it difficult to fulfill revenue goals associated to their base business. Procurement professionals needed better tools to streamline their workload and hoteliers needed a way to reach their buyers effectively.

 

Our drive to create a platform that provided solutions to these challenges transformed into Vindow, an all-encompassing 3-in-1 platform that gives buyers the market knowledge to execute better RFPs. This tool would offer airlines opportunities to save on hotel costs while providing full visibility and better management of their hotel portfolio, as well as creating an efficient and transparent process for hotels to manage RFPs.

 

Since then, we’ve grown from a procurement manager with a bold idea to revolutionizing the travel market. From our inception, Vindow has completed hundreds of transactions for buyers and suppliers to obtain better, mutually beneficial contract deals.
