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 automatically update RezEasy's database reducing inventory in RezEasy and all connected channels, thus avoiding double booking. Therefore there is no need to make manual updates. When you make reservations in RezEasy, each channel receives automatic updates.
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 update automatically.
The channel manager module works via Octorate, SiteMinder, eZee, Reseliva and companies that support the Open Travel Alliance data exchange. You will need an account with one of these third party companies.
RezEasy's Channel Manager offers a two-way connection with 400+ hotel booking channels. The number of channels will depend on the third party company you choose; however, they will all support major companies like Booking.com, Expedia, Agoda and Lastminute.
We have added integration with TripConnect into RezEasy's Channel Manager module. However, you will have to wait until TripAdvisor implement direct connections to hotel websites before you can take full advantage of this feature. You can use 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. Reservations are made directly into the RezEasy booking engine.
