RateTiger today announced that it has just completed connecting the 400th third party website making it the largest number of single OTA website integrations in the channel management industry. RateTiger’s channel list directory counts each OTA only once, regardless of domains available, thereby giving the user a true figure of the number of channel options available.
RateTiger’s 12 member integration team completed 150 connections in the last year and has now set a new goal of achieving the 500 mark by the end of 2009.
“With the growing importance of online distribution and channel management, travel and hospitality players today need solutions that are providing maximum business possible,” said Udai Singh Solanki, CIO of RateTiger. “By assisting channels to integrate with RateTiger products proactively, we are able to provide hoteliers with far more channel options. For third party websites it means in return enhancing and creating relations with customer and potential customer by offering easy and consolidated update options.”
The hospitality technology company has also been working closely with a number of Property Management Systems (PMS), Central Reservation Systems (CRS) and Revenue Management Systems (RMS) to provide XML integration with RateTiger suite of products.
