Hotel Channel Management 2.0:
Increase Your Profitability Through Smart Automation.
How automation and the opportunity of global hotel distribution can reflect in up to 20% more rooms revenue.
When Updating New Bookings
Hotel Channel Management is arguably one of the most important tasks within today`s fast paced digital environment and is usually complemented by the technological use of a hotel channel manager.
It’s the process of managing and listing your room inventory throughout all connected online hotel booking platforms, while simultaneously analysing and optimizing each online booking platform to increase potential sales activity.
Solely the use of a proper channel manager alone will enable you as a hotel to connect to as many online portals as desired without having to invest hours towards the implementation. As a result, this will give your hotel the global reach and visibility required to attain new guests for yourself on a regular basis.
Occupancy will noticeably increase, leading to higher revenue streams if the pricing strategy of your hotel is properly implemented. The workload around your hotel channel management, when using a channel manager, is also significantly reduced on a weekly basis, saving yourself or your workforce up to 20 hours of work per week when managing your inventory or that being completely reduced when working together with HotelPartner.

Avoid Overbooking & Unnecessary High Commissioned Channels.
With the surge of technology and online travel agents over the past years, the hotel sales landscape has become massively influenced, while market dynamics and travel behavior are constantly evolving. Not keeping up with this fast-paced environment will lead to your competition intercepting your hotel guests and disrupting your revenue stream.

- Uploading and updating rates is taking up unnecessary hours
- Multiple interfaces cause delay and slower update times
- Rate parity issues arise without proper management or overview
