Dear bloggers and friends,
I am very much excited to inform you that i will be installing a new channel manager and a new booking engine for the property that i am working for. The main job of an eCommerce- Revenue Manager is to drive direct bookings!If you wish to achieve great direct production then you need to invest in a great booking engine. After getting several offers (book assist, rate tiger, xhotels ,bookonline) i have decided to proceed with webhotelier that i know that it will convert quite well. My target is to double the room nights production! Much to be done, first the optimization of the platform! Stay Tuned!
70% -80% of the online business is coming through OLTAs, a state of the art channel manager is a must if you would like to increase the production significantly. Taking offers from Travelclick, Rate Tiger, Sabre and analyzing them was not an easy job. I had to create specifications to review them and decide how to proceed. Rate Tiger after all! It is one of the best channel managers in the market, value for money plus it offers a revenue management tool.
Stay tuned!too much to be done 🙂
#Resistance #Resistance#Resistance this the challenge that i am facing at the moment, people they love to be in their comfort zone but the job needs to be done!!Let's do business!
p.s the installation of a revenue management tool is the next target for accurate forecasting
