Protel Online Booking Engine

12-11-2015 Brendan Jordan General

The definition of Revenue Management is selling the right room to the right person at the right price and the right time through the right channel.

Hoteliers are optimizing Revenue per Available Room through channel management and maximising their efforts where they can get the highest Average Daily Rates. This is often through their own websites and a recent survey has shown that almost 25% of reservations are now being made directly on hotel websites using the embedded online booking engine.

Protel's own Web Booking Engine can work with you to turn lookers into bookers. More guests booking directly on your website means less commission to Internet Distribution Channels, Global Distribution Channels and Online Travel Agents. With real-time availability and rates direct from Protel you sell rooms when they are available, not when someone has time to update inventory. The Online Booking Engine is selling for you 24 hours a day and there is no backlog of reservations for agents to enter the following day.

Protel Web Booking Engine – More seamless interactions – more direct reservations
  • Seamlessly blends with the look and feel of your website
  • Mobile-friendly through responsive design for mobile and tablet
  • Powerful marketing and up-selling features
  • Special deals for privileged customers - customers can have their own login
  • Sell vouchers online

The benefits you will see:
  • Maximize direct bookings on the hotel website
  • Cut-down on commissions for Online Travel Agents and Distribution Channels
  • Fair and plainly calculable billing (fixed fee per completed booking)
  • Benefit from real-time exchange of availabilities, rates and bookings between Web Booking Engine and Protel
  • Offer secure payments via credit cards (PCI DSS certified) or a payment provider

When you identify reservations made via online travel agents or distribution channels why not suggest that the guest books directly on your own website next time? You may choose to incentivise the guest by offering a promotional rate but most importantly, your commission fees will reduce  if more guests book directly with you.

With the training and support of our dedicated Protel team at Retail Systems Technology we will work with you to ensure your inventory is available online and implement rate strategies to yield the best return as well as reduce commission payments to online travel agents and distribution channels.
