Hospitality software startup in channel push during lockdown crisis

Stampede, the Scottish hospitality software startup is looking for more partners to sells its products to hospitality clients that need to invest in technology to reopen safely and digitise services to help them grow to pre-COVID levels of profitability. Stampede says it pivoted to helping thousands of hospitality venues reopen safely during the last lockdown, and now it is looking to the channel to help it do so on an even bigger scale

Stampede currently claims four million users from over 800 locations across the UK, Europe, US, Asia and South America. As a capture and marketing tool that plugs into websites and network hardware for bricks and mortar businesses, it aims to collect data securely and grow with data-driven marketing campaigns.

The software integrates with IT brands like UniFi, Ruckus, TP-Link and it recently signed new reseller agreements with Invisinet and 7Hospitality, and it is actively seeking additional partners. Stampede believes it is an opportune time for resellers to introduce new cloud-enabled technology solutions to hospitality customers looking to emerge stronger after lockdowns and make the most of the holiday period, particularly for resellers with a high volume of clients in the retail and hospitality industries, as well as clients struggling to digitise multiple sites quickly/remotely.

“Hospitality businesses are absolutely fixated on what they need to do now to be successful over the Christmas period and get back to pre-COVID levels of profitability,” said Patrick Clover, Stampede founder and CEO. “The hospitality experience is increasingly digital, with customers choosing a venue online via services like Tripadvisor, registering their location on arrival via app, and placing orders the same way – yet it is often a disjointed digital experience. We offer clear value to hospitality businesses seeking a one-stop-shop solution for all their customer engagement needs, helping them to increase revenues, customer satisfaction and loyalty. To resellers, we provide an immediate return on investment. Because they can install Stampede remotely, there’s no need to wait until after lockdown. They can serve their hospitality customers today as they make plans for the rest of the year and 2021.” 

The Stampede software can be installed remotely and represents a quick and easy way for reseller partners to increase monthly recurring revenues, while adding high demand products to their line of business, he says.
