Who is RootRez
RootRez is a Park City, Utah based software company that provides white-label booking engines. Founded in 2009, the company was built on the ideology of creating technology that was by hoteliers for hoteliers. We now power the booking engine for popular brands in a variety of industries, such as Destination Marketing Organizations, world-class events, ski & summer resorts, and more. Brands choose to either license our software and create their booking engine or employ us to manage and build all aspects of their lodging platform. In other words, we're the wizard behind the curtain for many white-label booking engines.
Our white-label technology seamlessly integrates with your website. Using the code of your header, we create a platform that matches the look and feel of your brand, help you build out a date picker for certain pages on your webpage, and can consult you with analytics.
Once your team has contacted our sales department, we'll work with you to integrate the lodging link and date picker onto your booking engine. We will provide consulting and any code you may need.

Currently, we offer a direct connection for inventory and rates using Instant Software by HomeAway (ISI Link), Sabre GDS, TravelClick/iHotelier, Inntopia, DerbySoft, SiteMinder and Expedia Affiliate Network. If your system does not connect through one of these software programs, you can also load rates, inventory/room blocks into the RootRez CRS as a manual extranet.
