Cloud is the way to go for Holidu
The leading search engine for holiday homes, Holidu, boomed along with the holiday home market: founded in 2014, the company grew from three to well over 300 employees: to position itself properly for the rapidly growing business, Holidu decided to implement a modern and future-proof Cloud ERP solution. The SAP cloud ERP SAP Business ByDesign was the right answer, and not by accident:
- The Cloud ERP SAP Business ByDesign is a scalable solution
- Increased agility
- Simple and flexible connection of non-SAP systems, cloud applications, and data from external partners
The growing company needs an adaptable system landscape: Cloud ERP is in demand
The tourism industry and the holiday home market are worth billions, are highly competitive and are booming more than ever – Holidu is internationally active in 21 markets. Hence, investments in a modern Cloud ERP solution were necessary to establish quickly adaptable, automated processes.
Aims and challenges
- Clear management of > 100 partnerships and > 10,000 international customers per day
- Complete overview and integration across different payment models and currencies
- A scalable and flexible accounting system
- A software that can ‘grow’ with the company and is future-proof
We needed to marry this logic to the SAP way of working, while still maintaining a pragmatic, scalable approach. The result achieved is in line with our expectations.
– Dr. Alexander Stimpfle, Head of Finance at Holidu GmbH

Holidu GmbH, based in Munich, Germany, is a leading global search engine for holiday homes and apartments. As a comparison portal, Holidu checks millions of holiday homes from hundreds of booking pages and enables price savings of up to 55% for the same accommodation in the same travel period. In order to find the identical properties from the different providers and to show the best price, the search engine uses a self-developed image recognition technology. The start-up was founded in 2014 by the brothers Johannes and Michael Siebers and has been growing rapidly ever since. In 2018, Holidu was named best search engine for holiday homes by the independent consumer magazine “Guter Rat”.
