Channel Manager module launched
4th June 2014
Travel technology provider intuitive is delighted to announce the release of its Channel Manager Module this week.
For Tour Operators, OTAs and Accommodation Wholesalers who need to be able to offer their customers the best rates with the widest possible choice of relevant accommodation, linking to channel managers gives them the ability to respond to that customer demand. With market leading direct contracting capability along with pre-eminence in hotel supply from having over 90 bed bank connections intuitive was ideally placed to develop, for the iVector end-to-end reservation platform, a channel manager module to enable its customer’s access to this supply.
The module is designed to take continuous feeds from channel managers to ensure travel companies never miss out on the best rates, availability, stop-sales and promotions for their customers. Two-way XML connections make certain that, once made, the channel manager is updated with bookings.
Through intelligent design the iVector Channel Manager Module is able to take live feeds from an unlimited number of channel managers without any negative impact on the performance of the reservation platform.
This advanced architecture then ensures the latest rates and availability are ready and waiting when a potential customer performs a search. Intuitive’s Channel Manager Module is launched with connections to more than 10 of the most popular channel managers already supported with many more in the development pipeline.
Jackie Groves, intuitive’s Sales and Marketing Director said “intuitive with iVector is pre-eminent in supplier connections and in particular accommodation supply. By releasing a specific Channel Manager Module we aim to maintain and extend this market leading position in product supply. It ensures our customers can offer the widest relevant accommodation choices at the best prices to their particular customers.”
