News for the Hospitality Executive
London, 29 September 2010: Today, eRevMax, the holding company for RateTiger, announced the availability of GDS Shopping in RateTiger’s Shopper module. This development allows RTSuite and RTCorp clients to obtain Business Intelligence (BI) reports with competitor rates from the Global Distribution Systems(GDS).
Through this integration with ReservHOTEL, RateTiger hotel clients and travel management companies can access various online shopping reports from across multiple GDS's. This will assist with fine-tuning rate strategies based on up-to-the-minute competitor price movements. GDS Shopping is also available as an integration module in RTConnect, RateTiger’s XML channel management gateway.
The channel management pioneer also announced the addition of its 600th fully integrated distribution channel with over 120 of those connections being XML based. Already ahead of competitors in secure XML connections with OTAs, RateTiger continues to broaden the gap within this growing industry sector. All 600 RateTiger connections are two-way interfaces ensuring that customers benefit from real-time booking reporting.
"Our partnership with RateTiger has further strengthened with the integration of the GDS shopping feature. Hoteliers can now be safe in the knowledge that they no longer need to individually manage various inter-related systems. They can easily benchmark as well as distribute rates across various OTAs and the GDSs with just a few clicks," said Luis Barberi of ReservHotel. "This combination of the best of breed technologies continues to assist our hospitality clients increase room bookings across multiple channels."
"With rate benchmarking continuously increasing, especially during the last two years, we wanted to ensure RateTiger customers have access to latest competitor rates available on the GDSs. Our close partnership with ReservHotel has helped us to add this feature efficiently into our Shopper modules. Hoteliers can now simply choose the channels they want to shop and retrieve reports," said Sascha Hausmann, CEO, eRevMax International.
eRevMax connects to over 600 online sales channels including the GDS. This grants access to millions of consumers and over 480,000 travel agents worldwide. As hoteliers use more distribution channels RateTiger continues to provide all-in solutions that allow for connectivity and accurate data transfer to achieve better rates and revenue.
