eRevMax completes 2-way integration with ResAvenue


Hotel connectivity expert eRevMax has completed integration with ResAvenue, a popular online hospitality solution provider in India. The integration will facilitate hotels using ResAvenue to update rates and availabilities directly to their brand.com through RateTiger and RTConnect interface. 
Mumbai based ResAvenue is a ‘plug and play’ booking engine & CRS offering multi-lingual responsive and personalized booking experience to over 1000 hotel customers in South Asia and Middle East. The 2-way interface enables eRevMax to capture and deliver online direct bookings to the hotel PMS instantaneously, thereby eliminating manual handling of reservation notification and chances of overbooking. 
A hotel can augment its revenue stream with the establishment of smooth and seamless connectivity between the property and its other partners in the distribution ecosystem. ResAvenue is thrilled about the deep integration via 2-way connectivity between eRevMax, the leading online distribution technology provider, and our ResAvenue CRS. This collaboration effectively harnesses the potential of cutting-edge hospitality technologies to automate distribution and boost the hotel’s revenue,” commented Akhil Thakur, Manager-Travel Industry Services, ResAvenue
“At eRevMax, we give utmost priority to offering hotels a diverse range of connectivity solutions. By integrating with ResAvenue, we have expanded our core distribution offering, the real-time 2-way connectivity with hotel systems and online sales channels to include the hotel brand.com site,” said Ashis Saha, SVP – Project Management, eRevMax

Both the companies are attending Arabian Travel Market in Dubai from 24 – 27 April 2017. To set a meeting, please contact marketing@erevmax.com

eRevMax adds metasearch channels in its distribution offerings

While the concept of Meta search has existed for a number of years, but recently this method of research has become prominent within the travel industry. Following a 13 percent annual growth and a greater number of travellers citing a preference for Metasearch, eRevMax has partnered with World Independent Hotel Promotion (WIHP), to allow users of Connect and RateTiger to expand their visibility across Google Hotel Finder, TripAdvisor, Trivago, Kayak, and WeGo. It is anticipated that this will boost direct bookings, therefore reducing OTA fees. As a result of this partnership, tens of thousands of hotels across the world have been given new and exciting opportunities, according to WIHP VP Martin Soler.

This new partnership will help hotels to increase bookings and revenue for their property, by driving qualified leads from metasearch sites to their own website. This will help them in reducing OTA commissions and improve overall profitability. The advanced tracking available with the service will help hotels to know the exact return on investment for each metasearch channel they are advertising on.

Channel Management & OTAs

Are hoteliers keeping pace with the changing online booking space?

With a handful of powerful OTAs dominating the market, hoteliers are identifying ways to sidestep the high-commission they command. OTAs can be useful to engage a new guest, but many hoteliers are now aiming to drive repeat bookings to their own direct booking engines.
