Sihot integrates RateTiger inventory management
London, 9 February 2010: eRevMax International announced today that it has completed integration with Gubse AG. The integration will help hoteliers to streamline distribution and revenue management processes. From now on subscribing hotels can consolidate all availability and reservation data updates from multiple online sales channels into the Sihot Property Management System (PMS).
By connecting RateTiger’s RTConnect bi-directional channel management technology into Sihot’s PMS end-users can update rates and availability to over 500 online travel booking channels and the four major Global Distribution Systems (GDS) from the PMS. The interface will also process booking data made through Internet Distribution Systems (IDS) directly back into the PMS without having to enter data manually.
RTConnect provides key functionalities to Revenue Management, Central Reservation Systems, Property Management Systems and booking engines for controlling distribution across the internet. The HTNG compliant interface will help hoteliers to implement more intelligent revenue strategies by maximising sales opportunities with contracted channels. It also removes the need for hotels to source additional technologies.
“We are now offering a further distribution service to our property management customers,” said Christoph Haack, Project Manger, Sihot. “The increasing challenges from new travel booking channels and procedures are putting more demand on how hoteliers have to manage their properties and subsequently their distribution techniques. By integrating new technologies like RTConnect, we can help hotels remain flexible and remove the stress of seeking new systems to meet those revenue management requirements.”
“With an increasing proportion of hotel reservations being generated online, it is no longer feasible for hoteliers to manually update inventory on various travel portals independently. Hence developing the process to automate the transfer of rates and availability as well as transferring externally generated bookings into a hotel’s PMS is a pioneering achievement as this works bi-directional for all 500+ connected channels” comments Ragnar Strerath, VP Product Development. “Our aim is to help simplify hoteliers’ workflow and streamline industry procedures. With this partnership hoteliers can now use their Sihot PMS not only for property management but also to improve the efficiency of managing numerous internet distribution channels.”
GUBSE was established in 1986 under the name of GUB Software-Entwicklung GmbH, aiming to develop innovative hospitality software. Dating back to this time, the philosophy of the company has been to provide hoteliers with a complete and practical information and management system, based on the latest technology available.
By continuously developing their products, and anticipating new trends and requirements of the industry, GUBSE established itself as a leading provider of software solutions to the hospitality industry. The information and management system SIHOT is optimised in a way to suit the particular requirements of the hotel industry and consists of different modules. The foundation is SIHOT.PMS, which is complemented by a selection of modules to fit the individual requirements of a hotelier.
IT-specialists, hotel professionals and economists have developed SIHOT to one of the market leaders in the field of specialised hotel software. SIHOT is now being used in more than 2500 hotels the world over.
