The integrated solution offers hoteliers significant benefits, including:
• One single contact: A PriceMatch Account Manager will answer hoteliers’ questions concerning revenue management and distribution channel management
• One single login: PriceMatch will combine one screen, one login and one password for all online distribution tools
• One single invoice: PriceMatch will send one flat monthly fee, no engagement
• No connectivity charges between the Channel Manager and PriceMatch.
The new channel manager is the first to be wholly integrated into PriceMatch’s revenue management platform and relies on SiteMinder’s world class technology solutions – The Channel Manager and booking engine TheBookingButton – to offer an unlimited number of distribution channels as well as a pooling inventory system that allows hoteliers to capitalize on each of those channels without paying commission on incoming reservations.
Soon, hotelier clients of other technological partners will also be able to use PriceMatch’s channel management technology, fully integrated within the company’s revenue management solution. A number of channel managers are already on offer, free-of-charge, with PriceMatch, such as RoomCloud, FastBooking and Cubilis.
“SiteMinder shares PriceMatch’s vision of offering clients a simple and user-friendly channel management solution. The company’s own channel management platform, The Channel Manager, is the online distribution technology of choice at more than 14,000 hotel properties in 137 countries – so, naturally we wanted to partner with a leader in that category to enables our hotels to also connect their systems to all points of sale, including OTAs, GDS, wholesalers, booking meta sites and their own direct websites,” says Arthur Waller, CEO of PriceMatch.
“SiteMinder has been a role-model since the very beginning of PriceMatch, continually inspiring us to be technologically disruptive and customer-driven. Indeed it is for our hoteliers that, day after day, we do everything we can to push the boundaries of effectiveness, user-friendliness and integration.”
SiteMinder’s Head of Sales for Southern Europe, Alex Barros, says an integrated channel management solution is necessary for today’s hoteliers.
“As the hotel online distribution and digital marketing landscapes continue to evolve rapidly, today's independent hotelier is under increasing pressure to measure, monitor and control their price-value position across an increasingly complex electronic distribution landscape,” says Mr Barros.
“PriceMatch has shown it has a solution that simplifies the hotel price decision process and, by integrating via SiteMinder, that optimal price is now distributed to a large array of lucrative online booking channels. When your hotel property management system (PMS), revenue management and online distribution systems work in harmony, you can operate more efficiently, more profitability and have more time to focus on your guests’ stay experience.”
The price of PriceMatch’s new, optional package is innovative and transparent, with the aim of democratizing an effective online distribution solution for all hoteliers. The package is also commitment-free, so hoteliers can forego the option at any time.
