The company’s new online portal also offers more information on the business and its products.
The chat service – which operates in ‘real time’ - is one of many new customer focused functions available on the site.
The enhanced offering means RateTiger, one of the world’s leading online distribution and revenue management specialists, can give hoteliers the opportunity to receive on-screen advice while they are dealing with a busy reception desk; phone calls and guests.
RateTiger’s innovative new web service has been built with Web 2.0 functionality which means the site is even more user-friendly.
The system allows anyone logging on to the RateTiger website to interact with a real person at the company’s HQ. Customers and potential customers will be able to ask questions about the system and get informed answers back from experts on all RateTiger’s products.
“RateTiger believes in assisting its customers every step of the way from initial installation right through to maximising yield,” says Sascha Hausmann, COO. “By integrating ‘live chat’ onto our website, we can support our customers and offer potential customers the insight they need to use our products in the most efficient and effective way.”
When it comes to potential customers researching the best RateTiger product to manage their hotel inventory Hausmann says being able to exploit live interactivity with a real person will be invaluable.
“We’ve identified exactly what a potential customer needs to know when making an informed decision. This means hoteliers using our chat service to investigate our products can reach a right conclusion as to which of our software packages best suits their needs,” says Hausmann.
The company has also launched a number of new products in the past twelve months to enabling a larger number of hotels to take advantage of their software suites.
“Businesses should think seriously about integrating interactive technologies into their websites,” says Gargi Kundu, Creative Design Manager. “Web 2.0 is not about being flash but visitor expectations. Hoteliers are people who are used to using the internet as a consumer and for business.”
With the Lite and Pro versions RateTiger offers solutions for all ranges and sizes of hotels.
RateTiger products suites have been certified by Expedia and recently received its ISO27001 security certification.
