Hotel Channel Management

See how our hotel channel management system, dubbed the Vertical Booking Synchro Channel Manager, can help you.

About the Synchro Channel Manager

The Vertical Booking Synchro Channel Manager allows hoteliers to manage electronic distribution on channels automatically, simply and quickly from one central panel. As one of the best web-based channel management systems available, the Synchro Channel Manager automatically synchronizes rates and availability on all major IDS (Internet distribution service) channels.

The Synchro Channel Manager can be supplied as an integrated part in the Vertical Booking CRS, or as a stand-alone solution that is integrated with your hotel's property management system, booking engine or destination management system through an XML interface. 

How It Works

The Synchro Channel Manager is an advanced management system, not just a simple rate allocator, which can manage various distribution channels quickly, automatically and reliably. A hotelier does not need to assign a quantity of rooms. Instead, the system assigns a number of predetermined rooms to each channel and, in turn, decreases this number with each reservation received.

A simple traffic light system shows the status of the synchronization. For each update made in the Synchro Channel Manager, or for each reservation received from the integrated channels.

Advantages of the Synchro Channel Manager

Our Synchro Channel Manager offers the possibility of next generation seamless connectivity through Vertical Booking’s GDS distribution with the OK chain code. GDS distribution integration guarantees rate and inventory parity on all distribution channels.

This system provides users with advanced configuration functions for distribution, such as maximum number of rooms to be sold per day on each channel, availability percentage allocated to each channel for both room type and rate, and automatic cut-off when there are less than a specified number rooms available.

Also, management of availability on distribution portals is carried out using one single inventory per room type. This allows a hotel to sell all rooms, down to the last one, with very little risk of overbooking. The Synchro Channel Manager also handles automatic management of allotments requested by some IDSs (e.g. Booking.com, Expedia, Hotelbeds, etc.).
