IDeaS Expands Market Reach with RateGain Product Integration

Certified integration between IDeaS RMS and RateGain ChannelGain and PriceGain Hotel now complete

 
Minneapolis, MN – March 24, 2011 – IDeaS Revenue Solutions, the leading provider of revenue management software, services and consulting, and RateGain, an award-winning hospitality and travel technology company, today announced the complete certified integration of RateGain’s ChannelGain and PriceGain Hotel solutions and the IDeaS  Revenue Management System (RMS).
 
The integration offers joint clients, and future prospects, a seamless way to achieve rate optimization through multiple distribution channels. The first hotel to take advantage of the joint integration is the Grand Millennium, a world-class business and leisure property in Dubai.
 
The two-way integration has resulted in a multi-faceted solution. Integration with ChannelGain software allows users to work with the recommended rates from the IDeaS RMS and then swiftly push out the approved updates to different channels through a single interface. RateGain’s PriceGain Hotel is a comprehensive competitor rate shopping tool that will populate information into the IDeaS RMS – making the end rate recommendations more precise.
 
“Our goal is to provide our clients with technology that makes their jobs easier. The integration of our leading RMS with RateGain’s products will result in our clients benefiting from the combined strengths of both these systems, freeing up their time to plan strategically and grow their business,” said Linda Hatfield, vice president of product management, IDeaS.
 
“IDeaS provides a market leading revenue management system and we are delighted they agreed to work with us on the integration,” commented Vishal Jain, vice president of product management, RateGain. He added, “We believe the present market requires fully integrated solutions that can provide hotels with the full spectrum of forecasting, pricing and distribution channel management functionalities”.
