A channel manager is a software tool that helps hotels to manage their online distribution channels and room availability in real-time. The main goal of a channel manager is to increase a hotel's visibility and revenue by making it easier for hotels to sell their rooms through multiple online travel agencies (OTAs) and other distribution channels.
A channel manager is a single extra net or can be integrated with a hotel's property management system (PMS) and aggregate data from various distribution channels. This allows hotels to manage their room inventory, prices, and availability from a single platform, rather than logging into multiple systems and updating each channel individually.
With a channel manager, hotels can adjust their pricing and availability across multiple channels in real-time, based on demand and other factors. This helps hotels to avoid overbooking, ensure that they are not missing out on potential bookings, and ultimately maximize revenue.
In summary, a channel manager is a valuable tool for hotels looking to streamline their online distribution and improve their visibility and revenue. Whether it's through automating pricing and availability updates, reducing manual labor, or increasing visibility across multiple channels, a hotel channel manager can help hotels to grow their business and achieve their goals.
