New service further connects hotels and travel websites
RateTiger, the premium channel manager, has announced the launch of RTChannels – a complimentary service for member hotels to better manage existing and new online channel partnerships.
The RTChannels platform provides all relevant content on the online travel agents and third party channels that are connected to RateTiger. The new system provides customised search functionality to filter and select channels that best fit hoteliers’ product and provides additional revenue and sources of business for their property.
With over 700 connections, RateTiger has the largest online channel network amongst the channel managers. RTChannels provides relevant sales data to educate hoteliers and enables them to directly contact the connected channels. Hoteliers can link through to subscription forms to add new channels or subscribe as part of the RateTiger channel manager tool.
”Today’s huge plethora of internet travel websites can make it difficult for hoteliers to decide which ones to sell across. Hotels need guaranteed and meaningful ROI, therefore a careful selection of sales channels is essential. We have collated relevant business data to help hotels reach a quick decision. This will allow our customers to add additional channels or change channels instantly. We see the future of online bookings as a flexible distribution mix working with both high producing sites alongside more specific niche or local channels paired with dedicated marketing campaigns. RTChannels will make research and decisions much quicker,” saidMichael McCartan, COO, RateTiger.
RTChannels will help online sales channels create a closer relationship with hoteliers with the opportunity of being exposed to over 6,000 RateTiger customers directly.
RTChannels is new extra functionality, available free of charge to all existing RateTiger RTSuite and RTConnect customers and will be officially launched during HITEC.
