Why you should choose a PMS with integrated Booking Engine and Channel Manager

The Booking Engine and Channel Manager are two fundamental tools in hotel management, as they allow to distribute room inventory online and sell on multiple channels, from indirect ones, such as portals and metasearch to direct ones, like the hotel’s website and social networks. Integrated within the property management system, the Booking Engine and Channel Manager allow the exchange of data and information in real time, to have a view of the overall reservation trend directly in the PMS, saving time and resources, with the aim of maximizing the economic return. Daily processes are incredibly simplified: instead of accessing many panels with different credentials, online sales will be managed entirely by the PMS, by logging to a single panel, from which all other managerial activities are carried out.




In addition to simplifying online channel management, it increases the efficiency in sales planning: once prices and rates have been configured in the PMS, they automatically synchronize on all channels, following revenue management rules set in the PMS system, to increase the revenue generated on each sale.

Working with constantly updated real time availability, eliminates the risk of overbooking when a new reservation is received, online availability is automatically updated on all channels, to be aligned with the actual property data. Moreover, if a reservation is cancelled, the PMS automatically reopens the availability of the recently cancelled room to avoid losing any sale.

How many rooms can you grant to each sales channel? You can choose to share your entire inventory and open maximum availability on all channels or set a pre-defined number of rooms for each channel, to promote those managed directly by the Booking Engine.



Moreover, using PMS, Booking Engine and Channel Manager in a centralized way, you can examine the overall statistics of online sales.
