New interface to allow hotels push direct rates and availability to the travel application
Travel technology major eRevMax has completed 2-way XML integration with HotelsByDay, a web & mobile app based channel, offering day-time hotel rentals. The mobile travel application is the latest addition to the eRevMax Channel Ecosystem that connects hotels to over 150 global distribution channels.
Accommodation providers, using RateTiger, RTConnect and LIVE OS distribution solutions will now be able to optimize their RevPAR (Revenue Per Available Room) by making real-time rate and inventory updates and receive direct bookings generated on the interface directly into their property management system. Launched in 2015, HotelsByDay is a channel that lets travelers book a room for a block of hours between early checkouts and late check-ins at hotels. The app uses geo-location to show the day rooms closest to the user for booking same-day easily, along with advance booking options.
Currently available in 19 cities in North America, HotelsByDay offers over 300 elegant properties and continues to grow. The integration with eRevMax will help the channel to gain access to broader inventories, improve booking conversion and increase revenues as part of its worldwide growth plans.
“It’s always been utmost importance for us to offer our hotel customers a diverse range of distribution options through our eRevMax Channel Ecosystem. The integration with HotelsByDay will give our worldwide hotel customers a channel to sell their under-utilized inventories and improve revenue,” said Reuel Ghosh, CEO, eRevMax.
“According to 2015 industry estimate, an average of 1.2 million rooms in the US are sitting empty every day between early check-out & late check-ins and available for intra-day bookings. Add to that the unsold rooms from the night before to this inventory and the possibility is enormous. As a leader in hotel distribution and channel management solutions, eRevMax is the perfect partner to provide us with the opportunity to expand our reach and enable hotels to easily connect & optimize their sleeping & conference rooms with us,” said Yannis Moati, CEO, HotelsByDay.
eRevMax is developing its connectivity solutions to offer sophisticated real-time revenue management functionality to the hospitality industry. This includes solutions for the independent market, the mid-market and scaling up through the large, global hotel groups. The eRevMax Channel Ecosystem facilitates quality, certified connectivity and relationship management services to support complex revenue generation strategies.
