With the Channel Manager you can manage prices and availability of your hotel rooms, on all connected distribution channels, at the push of a button. Think of your own website, but also OTAs like Booking.com.
With the GDS Connector your hotel can be booked by more than 450,000 travel agents and companies. GDS stands for Global Distribution System, the worldwide distribution network where airline tickets, car rentals and hotel rooms can be booked.
With the GDS Connector, your hotel can be connected to systems such as Amadeus, Sabre, DHISCO and Travelport (Galileo and Worldspan). Travel agents can then book your hotel rooms, for which you pay a fee per booking.
GDS is also used by large corporate organizations to book business travel. The GDS offers these companies the advantage of one central environment for booking airline tickets, car rentals and hotel rooms. It is also possible to make separate agreements with companies and travel agents regarding prices and availability, which can be loaded into the GDS. In this way your hotel can receive corporate bookings without having to take into account Rate Parity.
At an additional cost it is possible to participate in consortia and promotional programs, which will enable you to generate more bookings through the GDS.
Price and availability management
The GDS connector features a user-friendly extranet, which allows you to easily manage texts, photos, prices and availability. Optionally, it is possible to link the GDS connector to the Channel Manager via a two-way connection. In this way the prices and availability are automatically loaded and bookings are directly forwarded to your PMS.
