What is a Channel Manager?
This is a technology solution that allows you connect & manage online distribution channels automatically from one point of access. It is a cloud based solution hence no software is required to be installed in your computer.
A channel manager centralizes the management of your rates and room inventory on one platform to all your online distribution channels. This means you can easily update rates across multiple channels from one point, open and close rooms for sale across multiple channels from one source as well.
A good channel manager will also offer a Booking Engine, this is a call to action button that is placed on your website and allows guests to book your hotel easily from your very own website.
Channel Management is the process and strategies used to manage the connected channels via your channel manager. This can be as simple as having different rate strategies between your online channels via your channel manager.
