A channel manager is a technology that takes care of connecting and automating a hotel's inventory distribution to multiple hotel booking sites synchronously. It enables hoteliers to manage availability, rates and reservations at the same time in a single system without needing to log-in and update your information in the different extranets. Thanks to a channel management system, hotels can list their inventory to hundreds of online booking portals such as OTAs (like Booking.com),Global Distribution Systems and alternative accommodation channels like Airbnb. Depending on the desired rules set by hoteliers, the channel manager will update all platforms in real-time based on a pooled inventory model. Pooled inventory is a modern principle enabling hotels, hostels and vacation rental companies to maximise occupancy while limiting the potential for overbookings. and other channels you need.
