August 5th, 2011 - The popular channel management software, ChannelRUSH, recently completed their integration with Open Hotel Booking Engine to allow hoteliers to manage rates and inventory in one area. Open Hotel is an online reservation system for hoteliers that allows their guests to book rooms directly from the hotel's website. ChannelRUSH is a web based hotel channel management system for revenue managers to maintain their hotel's rates and availability across many different 3rd-party sites at one time. The ChannelRUSH system integrates with more than 100 different sales websites and booking systems used by revenue managers and Open Hotel is proud to join this list of compatible channels.
With the rising popularity of discount travel websites, managing rates and availability has become an increasingly complex task for today's hotel revenue manager. Many of the top discount travel websites like Expedia, Travelocity and Orbitz require that hotels maintain rate parity. ChannelRUSH offers one place of management to prevent disparity between rates and provides real-time reporting for managers.
"We are very excited about the new integration with ChannelRUSH, as this will provide a huge benefit to our revenue managers and make their job much easier," says Michelle Herrin, VP of Business Development for Alternate Image, the developer of Open Hotel. "This is a great system and we look forward to offering it to our clients," she added. To learn more about ChannelRUSH, visit their website at www.ChannelRUSH.com or call 866.720.6808.
