Completes two way interfaces to expand rate and inventory distribution
May 15, 2014 (Newswire) - Portugal-based Host Hotel Systems, provider of HostPMS, has completed a new two-way interface between its property management system and eRevMax. The interface allows accommodation providers to enjoy automated management of room availability, rates and reservations between HostPMS and leading booking websites across the world through Connect, the SaaS e-distribution platform from eRevMax.
HostPMS is an integrated hotel management system that incorporates a wide range of features to manage any type of unit, independent of its size or operation type. Accommodation providers using HostPMS can now easily manage and update multiple sales channels including the Global Distribution Systems (GDS), various Online Travel Agents (OTA), Meta-search (MSC) and other e-commerce sites. Rate and availability data already present in their PMS can now be shared automatically through Connect out for onward distribution. Reservations coming in from these online channels are automatically sent to the property management system (PMS) by eRevMax and online inventory is adjusted accordingly, across all sites and in the PMS.
"Real time OTA channel connection is a key feature of HostPMS. eRevMax Channel Eco-system offers the largest number of two-way interface, and hence will provide our hotel customers the ability to expand their distribution portfolio to reach out to larger audience. Our interface with eRevMax eliminates the need for accommodation providers to maintain online inventory manually across each booking website and the need to manually re-enter online reservations from booking websites into the PMS", said João Rodrigues, Marketing Manager, Host Hotel Systems.
"This integration will allow HostPMS customers access to online distribution with real-time rate and inventory management. Any changes in rate and inventories will be automatically updated in real time across all connected sites all from with the HostPMS solution," said Greg Berman, COO, eRevMax.
