RezEasy's Channel Manager module automatically updates your inventory and rates in the Global Distribution Systems (GDS) and Online Travel Agents (OTA's) where you list your rooms. Reservations taken on these sites are automatically added to RezEasy's database and inventory is reduced in RezEasy and all connected channels thus avoiding double booking. This removes the need to make manual updates. When you make reservations in RezEasy the inventory is automatically pushed to each channel.
You can now manage your inventory and prices in one place. The rate can be configured in RezEasy, the Channel Manager or set at individual GDS/OTA's. Each time that rate or inventory changes all connected GDS/OTA's are updated automatically.
The channel manager module works via Octorate, SiteMinder, eZee and companies that support the
Open Travel Alliance data exchange (Allotz, ChannelRush, CultSwitch,
RateTiger and RoomCloud). You will need an account with one of these third party companies. More integrations will be added in the near future.
RezEasy's Channel Manager offers a two way connection with up to 400 hotel booking channels. The actual number of channels will depend on the third party company you choose. However, they will all support the major channels like Booking.com, Expedia, etc.
We have added integration with TripConnect into RezEasy's Channel Manager module but you will have to wait until TripAdvisor implement direct connections to hotel websites before you can take full advantage of TripAdvisor. However, you can also make use of the API built into RezEasy to exchange data with any travel website. RezEasy will send details of your hotel, rooms, prices and availability in response to a search request. Reservation are made directly into RezEasy booking engine.
