RateGain Expands its Operations in South East Asia by Entering Thailand


Bangkok - October 12, 2010 - RateGain expands its reach beyond its traditional customer markets such as US & Europe and establishes its operations in Thailand. Since its inception in 2004, RateGain has been focusing extensively on the hotel and travel companies in US and European regions. South East Asia has always been a major tourist destination and with the emergence & adoption of web technologies, there is an increase in demand for web-based solutions in the online hotel industry.
 
Presently this region is a hub of more than 2500+ up market and chain hotels. It’s mainly due to the continuous requests received for products like channel management and market intelligence solution from hotels in this region, RateGain chose Thailand as the base of its first overseas operations in South East Asia.
 
Although being a global company, RateGain truly believes in the concept of “Glocal” i.e. Global yet Local. To serve this huge market, RateGain has appointed Khun Worrachat Korbkusol, a veteran travel industry professional, as the Business Manager for Thailand who is based in Bangkok. He would be responsible for new business development for RateGain as well as offering account support to its clients in local language.
 
According to Amit Khurana, VP, Global Hospitality Business, “Being a Thai national, Khun Worrachat understands the culture and professional demand of Thai Hotel Industry. He has an important contributing role to play in bridging the gap and ensure that RateGain becomes a household brand name in Thai Hotel Industry”.
 
Setting up its operation in Thailand is the first step of entering in the South East Asian market by RateGain. The company plans to expand its reach in other prominent countries that are major tourist destinations.
