The platform has released its new I functionality to further support the sale of overnight stays for its accommodation partners around the world. This I-integration enables hotels to create, modify, toggle, and access promotions on Agoda.com without going to the Agoda.com Extranet (YCS). This allows hotels to implement and manage rate strategies and distribution through a single window.
Mathieu Verhaeghe, Head of Regional Connectivity Partnerships at AC, Agoda, said, “We are excited to bring this new functionality to accommodation partners through RateTiger Channel Manager. With this new tool, properties can take immediate action to maximize booking opportunities through Agoda.com while increasing operational efficiency. „
Ashis Saha, SVP Project Management at eRevMax, said: “With travel recovery still around the corner, it has been our continuous aim to offer our hotel partners innovative solutions to attract more demand. We are very excited to be the first technology provider to offer Agoda Promotion I through RateTiger Channel Manager. This integration enables our partner hotels to develop new pricing strategies and implement them quickly and effectively in order to increase visibility and direct business to their property. ”
The integration enables a simple three-step process to create promotions through an intuitive layout in the dashboard, so hotels can easily implement their tariff strategies and increase demand. A hotel can choose to run any or all of types of promotions for their hotel. Some of the most popular are:
• Basic Deal – Simple and fully customizable promotion where the guest receives a discount on selected rooms and prices.
• Early Bird – Allows hotels to get a head start, attract avid bookers, and fill rooms early in the off-season.
• Last Minute – Sell leftover rooms, maximize occupancy, increase visibility on mobile devices and attract last-minute bookers.
The company offers hotels worldwide tariff purchasing, channel management, booking engines and online sales solutions. It offers a system availability of 99.9 percent and conforms to ISO, PCI and GDPR. The company continues to innovate and expand its partner base with new integrations to offer hoteliers seamless connections across different systems, including PMS, CRS, OTAs, metasearch channels, GDS, wholesalers and offline tour operators.
