Today all types of Accommodation providers, independent properties, hotel groups or vacation rentals are all highly reliant on Online Travel Agents (OTAs) to maximize their bookings.
World without a Channel Manager
The task of distribution of inventory and rates across multiple OTA’s would be a tedious, time-consuming process for the properties when managing their online distribution manually. This manual process could also lead to overbookings and rate disparity. A channel manager empowers small and large accommodation providers with greater control and flexibilty.
What is a Channel Manager?
A traditional channel manager handles online distribution for accommodation providers of all types so they can easily manage their bookings across multiple OTAs from a single source. It’s a tool designed to help accommodation providers manage inventory, rates and content at ease.
When a customer books a room from a particular channel, availability is automatically updated across all other channels including your property’s booking engine. It centralizes and automates the process of updating channels, availability, and rates all in real-time.
What is a White Label Channel Manager?
Generally offered to Resellers. A white label channel manager is similar to a traditional channel manager but with a customised skin based on the Reseller brand colours. Channel Management providers across the globe offer a White Label Solution in markets that they do not have a presence.
Sales, onboarding and first level support is offered by the Reseller in a white label setup. The Reseller gets a separate login and all the properties that are contracted through the reseller can be seen in this view. A white label channel manager usually gets the same updates that the traditional manager does on their system and can offer them to their clients.
What is SU?
