protel hotelsoftware and eRevMax today announced the successful integration of eRevMax’s two-way XML gateway Connect with protel’s property management system (PMS) offering hotel end-users a wider distribution platform to help increase online exposure and bookings.
The strategic partnership between the two leading hospitality software specialists will help hotels streamline their sales by using only one application for revenue and distribution management. Hotels using protel’s PMS product range including SPE (Single Property Edition) and MPE (Multi Property Edition) will benefit from updating rates and inventory on a diverse mix of online distribution channels directly from their hotel system in real-time.
Katja Möller-Osthues, Director of Sales, protel commented,“The integration with eRevMax is a win-win partnership as we aim to help our hotel clients improve operational efficiencies while enhancing distribution reach. The development of a dedicated interface gives our clients the functionalities of a hotel channel manager directly integrated into their PMS. Our aim is the simplification of hoteliers’ workflow while optimizing revenues.”
Greg Berman, COO, eRevMax, said “We are delighted to have protel as one of our technology partners. A greater number of hotels can now leverage the benefits of our Channel Ecosystem while streamlining their distribution efforts. The secure XML connection ensures live rate and inventory updates as well as booking data retrieval, thereby keeping the hotel PMS updated at all times. The process eliminates manual interference in the distribution process and helps hoteliers focus on developing new revenue strategies to stay ahead of competition.”
Connect, by eRevMax, is the electronic distribution gateway which provides connectivity for rate, inventory and reservation delivery to hotel systems. It helps hotels gain that essential presence in the market to reach more consumers. eRevMax continues to develop its connectivity solutions further to offer sophisticated distribution functionalities to the hospitality industry.
