BookIt Teams Up with RateTiger to
Strengthen Hotel Relationships
.
Amsterdam, November 11, 2005 - Bookit the market leader in short-break holidays in the Netherlands has integrated its extranet into RateTiger’s channel management platform by eRevMax Technologies.

To strengthen their relationship with their hotels, Bookit has chosen to integrate its extranet into the RateTiger channel management platform. ‘At Bookit we strive to be a user friendly company towards both consumers and hoteliers. We simply acknowledge the fact that hotels will work with more then just a few distribution companies, so integrating our system in to RateTiger is a natural step for us.’ Comments Karel Vos, Commercial Director at BookIt.

‘Many of our clients are using RateTiger to maintain their rates and availability with 3rd party websites. We clearly see the advantage for the hotelier being able to control his distribution network. In the end if they have a better handle on their availability, they will be able to offer us more last minute inventory. RateTiger does not pose us as a threat, but as an opportunity to help our hotel clients deal with the complex distribution world of today and an opportunity to lower the bar for hotels to start working with Bookit. 

‘We are very pleased to have BookIt become a development partner’ says Patrick Landman of eRevMax Technologies. ‘We are working actively with them to optimize our interfaces and foresee to be switching to an XML based link in the not so distant future. Bookit, is an important addition to our portfolio. It is the leading short-break company on the Dutch online travel marked since it launched its first website Weekendjeweg.nl in 1994. With its distinctive portfolios of websites, Nachtjeweg.nl, Roomforanight.co.uk, Weekendsaway.co.uk, hotelletje.nl and Bungalows.nl it aims at the short-break holiday market. The hotel product they offer is mainly located in the Netherlands, Belgium and Germany, within driving distance for the Dutch leisure traveler. We will be signing the agreement with BookIt.nl at WTM in London next week, making it a successful event for us before it even started.’
