Technologists at Hotel Booking Solutions (HBS) and SECURE-RES.COM announced the successful implementation of a two-way interface between hobooBox(TM) channel management solution and the SECURE-RES.COM CRS.
The interface will allow reservations booked on property websites of SECURE-RES customers to be transferred directly and securely to the hotel`s property management system - eliminating faxes and emails. Additionally, since both companies` pricing models are low, fixed monthly fees, there are no transaction costs for the hotelier to deal with.
Hoteliers will also be able to use hobooBox`s (TM) comprehensive channel management tools to control various rate, availability and other functionality that will affect the information provided on their SECURE-RES.COM booking engine, as well as Alternative Distribution Systems (ADS).
“Independent hoteliers are in need of a solution like this,” says Chris Lopez, CEO of HBS. “Nearly all methods of distribution require them to give away percentages of the transaction. The SECURE-RES solution combined with hobooBox(TM) is easy to budget and highly manageable.”
Joe Hyman, CEO and President of SECURE-RES.COM added, “Not only are the hotels giving up a significant portion of their revenue to 3rd party travel portals, these low yield bookings are creating additional handling and personnel costs at the properties. The SECURE-RES.COM property booking channels allow the hotels to manage their rates efficiently, our booking tools attract buyers to the hotel websites and now we can offer a fast accurate means of updating directly into the hotel PMS. This will reduce the hotel`s cost per sale and synchronize prices with the front desk.”
