London, United Kingdom, November 04, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- Dutch-based company Hotels Online, provider of LodgeGate Hotel Management System (PMS), has selected RTConnect, the premium XML interface, for electronic rate and inventory distribution as well as reservations delivery.
RateTiger recently completed the 2-way XML connection integration with LodgeGate and its 150+ hoteliers are currently adopting the technology to better manage sales. Over 30 properties will soon be using the enhanced service and benefit from a two-way connection to their electronic distribution network. Customers of the PMS will be able to automatically maximize their online presence while avoiding over-booking through an easy-to-use interface.
LodgeGate’s customers can now easily manage and update multiple sales channels including the Global Distribution Systems (GDS), various Online Travel Agents (OTA), e-commerce and social media. Rate and availability data already present in their PMS can now be shared automatically with RateTiger’s channelmanager. This will save time and provide opportunity to make additional money.
As part of the interface, hotels will also receive booking confirmations directly into their property management system, therefore sparing the effort of manual data entry.
“Real time OTA channel connection is one of the prominent features of LodgeGate functionality for last 6 years, so this integration is an exciting development for our hotel customers which provides significant growth in the number of connected channels. Together with RTConnect, LodgeGate will save hoteliers even more time now in order to make more money from their electronic sales channels,” said Jan-Willem Moors, Manager Operations, Hotels Online – LodgeGate. “RTConnect is helping hotels gain that essential presence in the market to reach more consumers. Hotels often struggle to access the technology they need to manage these new demands; our partnership with RateTiger gives them premium technology at a price they can afford.”
“LodgeGate hotels will now be in a better position to compete in their local markets by having access to a much wider sales distribution network,” said Ragnar Strerath, Division President, RTConnect, RateTiger. “Independent hotel properties have the technology they need to maximize their time and resources while have a stable platform to manage more sophisticated sales strategies.”
