Integrate Channel Manager with RevControl to optimize revenue

The key factor in optimizing your revenue is controlling your rates and the availability of your hotel with integrations.

Integrate our best Channel Manager tools with RevControl to optimize your revenue streams

As a hotelier, you want to offer the right price to the right customer at the right time. This price must be just right, so that the customer does not drop out because the price is too high, but also does not pay too little so that you miss out on revenue. One of the most important factors in optimizing your revenue is controlling your rates and the availability of your hotel. The integration of a revenue management system with a Channel Manager is the best solution for this, the road to success to achieve more turnover. Such integration allows you to make the right choices, such as basing decisions on accurate forecasts and managing more complex rates.

It remains a challenge for hotels to manage an effective revenue management strategy. Modern technologies can definitely help to facilitate this challenge. Creating a seamlessly integrated tech stack (meaning you integrate your property management system (PMS) with a Channel Manager and a revenue management system) helps create a central control system to manage prices efficiently and strategically.

At RevControl, we use automated control for rate recommendations and synchronize reservation data with your channel manager in real-time. In this way, all channels (OTAs, metasearch engines, your website, and social media pages) are updated 24/7 with the new prices and current availability.

Channel managers and revenue management systems are thus an essential part of online distribution strategies for hotels. However, determining the right technology is unique for every hotel, it cannot be a one-size-fits-all. A good strategy should include how you execute your plans and what tools will help you achieve your goals. To help you with that, we have selected the best Channel Management platforms with a wide range of technology suitable for your hotel and which integrate perfectly with RevControl.
