|LONDON (March 8, 2005) – Mark Heynen, Managing Director of Electrobug
Technologies Ltd, announced today that Eurostars Hotels has selected Electrobug’s
Rate Check pricing intelligence tool for all 29 of its properties.
Eurostars’ hotel properties are located in 5 countries and 17 cities across
Rate Check is a unique pricing intelligence solution for the hospitality industry that permits users to perform both instant and pre-scheduled real time searches for competitive rates. Electrobug provides the only competitive rate intelligence solution that provides instant views of cached Web pages, so further research and understanding can be obtained with one click.
"This partnership will permit Eurostar properties to improve their rate intelligence from both the GDS and the Internet electronic channels," said Heynen in making the announcement.
"Because Eurostars properties compete against virtually every type of property, we require a rate intelligence solution that can provide us with room night pricing information from virtually any channel, whenever we need it,” said Luis Ramirez, Corporate Revenue Director for Eurostars. “We evaluated all the solutions available for Eurostars hotels, and we chose Rate Check because it provides the best quality at great values to our properties.”
Electrobug is widely known for its suite of online data retrieval tools for price tracking, currently in use at a number of retailers, airlines, hotels, and online travel agencies. Electrobug provides hotels with enhanced decision support and channel management software. Electrobug’s Rate Change product enables hotels to change rates and allocations on multiple extranets through one interface. By integrating Rate Change with its Rate Check product, Electrobug is offering hotels "One Click Rate Parity", enabling the rebalancing of third party channel rates against the brand web site or GDS with the click of one button. The new Rate Parity Control product enables hotel brands and chains to streamline workflow of unifying individual property rates with corporate pricing and distribution policies.
