Fastbooking offers hotels greater rate control

Fastbooking SA will be offering Fastbooking Checker and Fastbooking Updater solutions “powered by Electrobug” to its 2800 clients.
These two solutions will be distributed online via password access, but be fully intgerated into the Fastbooking online suite.

As a result of this integration, hotels using the service will be able to check online and GDS rates in realtime without leaving their usual CRS system, and have one point of contact for support. The hotels will also be able to take advantage of some of the unique features offered by Electrobug system, including realtime on screen rate shopping, one-click rate parity, and verifying rates by looking at the actual “cached page” the rate was retrieved from.

Soraya Kefs, Executive Director Technical Services, says: “We have reviewed the offerings on the market, and this solution gives us and hotels exactly the service that is required. This is a great opportunity for our hotels to understand their market in more detail, and save a great deal of time in updating rates and allocations online in one screen.”

Electrobug has successfully implemented services “powered by Electrobug” in the past, including EZRMS EZ Compete and Pegasus RateChecker, and is delighted to be working with Fastbooking to service their clients. Mark Heynen, Managing Director of Electrobug, says: “We see this as a very important partnership. Not only do we reach a whole new set of savvy hoteliers, but we also get to work closely with one of Europe’s premier hospitality technology companies.”
