Icnea celebrates 30 years of activity!
Icnea was founded in 1978, in the era of management software development for medium companies. We took our bet and began to invest in creating standard applications that allowed us to reduce the implementation costs and offer valuable solutions at a contained cost.
Among the successes achieved the Eurogest management application stands out as it was selected by the organizing committee to be used during the Barcelona 1992 Olympic Games. The application had so much success that it was successively selected by IBM to be implemented in their entire line of production IBM AS / 400.
With the birth of the World Wide Web we decided to apply our experience in management to develop e-commerce solutions among which tourist bookings with the objective of promoting the online business generation.
In the year 2005 we started to commercialize a Property Management System (PMS) created specifically for agencies specialized in vacation rental. Its features still increase in number and improve today to guarantee a simple but exhaustive management regardless of the type of property.
Shortly after we realized the PMS was not enough anymore and it was therefore indispensable to add another tool capable of enhancing our product in a definite way. The need to offer the possibility to synchronize information with selling channels became obvious as these continued to multiply so in 2007 we began working on the integration of a channel manager. Our first partner was Booking.com but it didn’t take long before we began to start various collaborations with a continuous growing number of channels to guarantee a reservation flow suitable to all sort of ambitions.
Today, 30 years later, Icnea consolidated itself in the PMS Channel Manager market for agencies specialized in vacation rentals offering channel connection with more than 150 channels; allows to publish new properties directly from our PMS in the most important channels: Airbnb, Booking.com, Flipkey and Homeaway; include solutions that adapt to all types of management and unceasingly adds new partnerships with external companies to extend its services.
The road that has been traced in front of us is still long, but we strongly believe in our values and follow with courage our ambitions.
