Dublin, Ireland, 2010/04/20 - Bookassist has announced the availability of Channel Connect™, an advanced distribution control system to allow hotels to centrally manage their online distribution and intelligently manage availability and rates - Bookassist.com.
International hotel strategy and software firm Bookassist today announced the availability of Channel Connect™, an advanced distribution control system to allow hotels to centrally manage their online distribution.
In a fast-paced industry, Bookassist has recognized today's need for hotels to be able to reliably and quickly manage multiple online channels such as third party websites. Bookassist's Channel Connect includes configurable rules that can intelligently manage availability and rates on those channels, dynamically yielding to more successful resellers and maintaining any required rate parities.
Speaking about the launch, Bookassist's Head of Business & Operations Yahya Fetchati said: "Hotels need to be concentrating on their rate strategy, not wasting time on logging into channels and updating this and that all day. Rate strategy is a critical task and Channel Connect allows our hotels to re-focus their time on what really matters and let the software handle the routine work."
Channel Connect is conveniently built right into hotels' Bookassist administration system, and features incoming bookings reporting and simple-to-understand logging to see exactly where you stand online. Countering the usual complaint of inaccuracies in channel management software, Channel Connect offers a higher level of connectivity service, security and reliability. It is the only such solution that makes a three-cycle check on updates to channels - reading, writing and re-reading to check the integrity of all updates.
Channel Connect offers connectivity to over 100 channels and its connectivity is rapidly expanding. It is available in three service levels to suit most hotels' needs, for management of up to 10 channels, for management of 11 to 20 channels, and for management of unlimited channels.
Bookassist® (bookassist.org) creates and manages successful and proven online strategies for over 2400 hotels and groups worldwide and is the industry-leading hotel booking engine and online marketing provider in Ireland. A Deloitte Fast 50 Technology Company in Ireland and in the Top 100 Deloitte Technology Companies in Europe, Bookassist has received numerous awards in Online Trade, Online Marketing, and Technological Innovation including the Irish Internet Association’s NetVisionary Award for online trade.
