Superior connectivity with OTAs results in 5% revenue growth in 3 months for Bayleaf Intramuros
Bayleaf Intramuros, an upmarket boutique hotel in Philippines has improved in online sales with efficient rate and availability distribution through RateTiger. The property offering 57 rooms in Manila, has started using RateTiger Channel Manager in June this year and experienced immediate result.
Located within the walls of the oldest district and historic core of Manila, Bayleaf Intramuros is an iconic landmark popular with luxury leisure travellers. The property has been leveraging eRevMax’s seamless connection with global and regional OTAs to update rates and availability across channels like Booking.com and Expedia and receive reservations in real-time. RateTiger’s interface with leading technology providers like DirectWithHotels has allowed Bayleaf to manage their online booking engine through the interface. This has resulted in 5% growth in revenue in just three months.
“We work with a number of online demand partners like Booking.com, Expedia, TripAdvisor- just to name a few. RateTiger has 2-way integration with all these travel sites plus a wide range of metasearch, wholesalers and niche channels to choose from. The best part is I can monitor performance, targets and reservations, always updated, on the LiveOS platform, to make informed decision. We are now able to yield better than before,” said Benjie V. Martinez, Area Director of Sales and Marketing, The Bayleaf Hotels.
Philippines is one of the world’s fastest-growing online travel markets – and much of the region’s online opportunity is yet to be tapped. With close to 46% bookings coming from online, it’s important for the property to maintain presence, maintain exposure in OTAs. The revenue management team of the Bayleaf Hotels is also using RateTiger’s benchmarking report to monitor competitor’s rate movement and maintain rate parity across online sales channels.
“I personally monitor the rates daily and update our prices according to the market demand. The competitor rate shopping tool on LiveOS has really made my daily operations smooth. I am now very hands on with revenue management, more than ever before, thanks to RateTiger”, said Benjie V. Martinez, Area Director of Sales and Marketing, The Bayleaf Hotels.
