The company pulls rates and availability from third-party sources around the globe, enabling it to offer more rooms and vacation rental rates than traditional distributors – all through a single connection and with the benefit of technology assisting in the mapping process. Zumata’s AI capabilities also allow for more customized, natural language-based searches beyond traditional queries that only return information on rates and availability.

Zumata CEO Josh Ziegler said the partnership enables his company to easily connect with both Dhisco’s buying and selling partners to expand the reach of Zumata’s AI-based system.
