Five reasons to use a Channel Manager

No matter the size of your property, there is a massive opportunity for you to reach and attract guests all over the world. Read more about what a channel manager can do, what some of the biggest benefits of using a channel manager are, as well as what OTAs you can connect to with SiteMinder.

Easily manage and connect to OTAs with a Channel Manager

A channel manager is a software product that enables your establishment to offer all of its rooms for sale concurrently on all of your online travel agency channels.

A channel manager may rapidly update your availability in real-time on all platforms once a reservation has been made, a room is closed to sales, or you need to make significant changes to your inventory.

If you are attempting to sell your rooms through many online channels, including your own website and online tour operators, and you are having trouble keeping your listings updated and optimised, a channel manager might be able to help.

Channel managers were created to assist hotels in navigating the new market without losing clients or revenue. With the emergence of online travel platforms like Booking.com and Expedia and the proliferation of passengers who prefer to book their trips online, a channel manager may greatly improve a property’s capacity to attract guests and maximise revenues.

Five benefits of using a Channel Manager

When determining if your hotel needs channel management software, consider whether the following results are beneficial to your company:

  1. Avoiding wasting precious time on several extranets.
  2. Less time is spent updating inventory data and there is no chance of human error when adding or updating rates and availability.
  3. An increase in revenue and occupancy.
  4. Automatic, real-time channel updates.
  5. Establish one scalable distribution platform that is dependable and stable for your business.

You might consider that paying a commission to OTAs, a subscription fee to channel management technology, and any acquisition costs associated with securing direct sales is too much to manage. It has been demonstrated that using a channel manager, even when you receive a lot of reservations from OTAs, may significantly enhance occupancy and income, even if just slightly.

Even if your property just had a few rooms, a channel manager may still be very beneficial to your company by streamlining your daily inventory management.
