SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 29, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Xola, the powerfully simple reservation software for tour and activity businesses, today introduced its one-of-a-kind integration with Smartwaiver, the leading digital waiver solution for enterprises including the NFL, VANS, and the U.S. Naval Academy. Xola streamlines tour companies' operations and offers the only integration that tracks and links all Smartwaiver releases, bringing new efficiency and risk management standards to the $12 billion domestic tours and activities industry.
This new integration solves a common headache plaguing any activity company with customer liability, from brewery tours, to river rafting, to ziplining. Currently, a single tour reservation can include multiple participants who fill out digital waivers from a number of devices, either at home or on-site at the tour. Other integrations only work if all the participants fill out the waiver from the same source URL, meaning that many forms end up lost in cyberspace.
Within Xola, companies can easily locate and pair a digital waiver from any source in seconds and attribute it to the master reservation. With Xola and Smartwaiver, companies protect themselves and their customers more effectively, run tours more efficiently, and improve the customer's overall experience.
"We're excited to partner with one of the true leaders in booking software for tours and activities," said Daryl McCarl, Director of Marketing and Business Development of Smartwaiver. "The robust integration they've built with Smartwaiver's open API has already received great feedback from customers, saving them time and making it easy for them to manage all their waivers right in the reservation software."
Xola's announcement arrived during the 21st annual conference of the Association for Challenge Course Technology. More than 700 industry professionals have gathered in Austin, Texas to explore the industry's latest technological advancements. Recently named as the association's official booking software, the Xola-Smartwaiver integration provides one more reason that it's the top choice for tour and activity companies.
"We're proud of the reputation we've established as an industry-leading booking solution, and we'll continue to build innovative, elegant, and easy-to-use software," said Xola's CEO, Scott Zimmerman. "Smartwaiver shares our same commitment, making them an ideal partner for future growth."
