Leverages 2-way connectivity to expand visibility
Berlin, 28 September 2016: Berlin based Hotel California Kurfurstendamm has implemented RTConnect by eRevMax to expand its visibility and also benefit from 2-way connectivity between its property management system (PMS) and online sales channels. The four-star hotel property has also subscribed to Managed Reports service to monitor competitor rate movements and market scenario.
Located in Berlin's elegant Charlottenburg district, Hotel California manages 163 rooms through various online sales channels. With RTConnect, the team will benefit from seamless rate and inventory updates to all connected channels directly from the hotel PMS. Further, with the help of Managed Reports data, the hotel can take informed pricing decisions ensuring rates are optimized.
“We’re very pleased to partner with eRevMax. RTConnect helps us to manage distribution in real-time. Online reservations flow directly into our PMS keeping us updated of occupancy and availability. It provides us a bird’s eye view on ARI and also eliminates any chances of overbooking. The rate reports are also very useful as we know when competitors are changing prices and we can act immediately and modify our pricing strategy as required. It’s great to work with technology that makes daily life simple. RateTiger team is 24 hours there to assist us in any kind of problems in English, German and Spanish as well,” said Manuel Klug, Revenue Manager - Sales & Marketing at Hotel California Kurfurstendamm.
Stuart Derricott, VP Sales at eRevMax commented, “It is interesting to see how hotels are moving towards direct distribution through the PMS. Germany is one of the top five tourist destinations in Europe and it is important that hotels keep their rates and inventory updated online to attract more business. We are delighted to have Hotel California Kurfurstendamm as our valued client and empower their distribution strategy through RTConnect.”
