HotelTravel.com has added RateGain’s Channel Management solution, ChannelGain, as its latest connectivity platform as the company continues to assist its hotel partners to expand options that ensure rate parity.
The agreement allows HotelTravel.com’s partner hotels to add information and rates ChannelGain on a real time basis, in turn giving consumers faster access to more updates and unique hotel deals.
HotelTravel.com Chief Information Officer Olivier Dombey said: “HotelTravel.com understands the importance of maintaining consistent hotel room rates; variance only encourages online consumers to continue searching for other deals, not booking hotels.
“This is part of an ongoing commitment by HotelTravel.com to continue to expand its connectivity and channel management options, allowing more hotels and chains to work directly with us, and manage rates and inventory the way they want to.
“RateGain is considered a leader in the hospitality industry channel management and is very well respected. HotelTravel.com is delighted to have the opportunity to work together them.”
RateGain has topped the Deloitte list of fastest 50 technology companies from India in 2007, as well as ranking 16 on the fastest 500 Asia-Pacific. It reappeared again as second and fiftieth, respectively, in 2008 and made it to both the lists for the 3rd consecutive year in 2009.
On this strategic integration, Abhishek Singh, AVP, Channel Management said: “HotelTravel.com with its prominent presence in Asian countries and a network of travel wholesalers makes it a unique value proposition for RateGain to offer to its hotels. Our partnership offers a win-win situation for both consumers traveling out of Asia to Europe and North America and hoteliers targeting the Asian travelers market. With this integration, our customers in European, Middle East, Asian, and American region would get access to the wide customer base of Hoteltravel.com.”
