eRevMax, the leading hospitality technology & solutions provider of channel management and connectivity solutions, RateTiger and Connect, hosted its signature TigerTime session with the major Asian OTAs at ITB Berlin. The distribution provider will share valuable insights how to capture fair share of bookings in the emerging markets from the key online distribution players in the Asia region. Asia has ousted Europe to become the world’s biggest travel market. TigerTime session will be held with major Asian OTAs Rakuten, Wotif and Agoda.
Until recently, there was very little need to ensure visibility within Asia – a continent known for their preference of more traditional ways. However, with almost half of Asian travellers now citing the web as their number one method for travel booking, there has never been a more important time for hoteliers to branch out.
To celebrate hitting an important milestone in eRevMax history – serving 7000 happy customers – the company attended the 2013 World Travel Market event in London to show exactly why they’re considered a world leader in channel and distribution management. With help from their approved channel ecosystem which includes Agoda, GTA, and Russian-based Ostrovok, eRevMax used this opportunity to show how the popular RateTiger software has evolved and become flexible and diverse enough to meet the needs not only of independent hoteliers but also of mid-market hotel groups and large, global hotel chains. The event took place between 4th and 7th November at ExCeL Docklands.

The biggest hotel search engine in Russia, Ostrovok has completed a 2-way XML interface with eRevMax to offer faster connectivity to its growing base of customers. With this integration accommodation provider will be able to update inventory availability and room rates in real-time helping them control pricing strategies and optimize their revenue.
“We are glad to announce our partnership with eRevMax. RateTiger is leading e-channel manager on many markets and our partnership will help us to grow our hotel network both in Russia and in Europe.” said Pavel Babenko, Director for International Markets, Ostrovok.
The partnership will revolutionise bookings and inventory control for Ostrovok, which requires increased efficiency due to hastening demand in Russia, where the online travel market is expected to cross $10 billion, accounting for 20% of the total travel market.
