eRevMax, leading hotel distribution technology provider has announced a new association with Singapore based Caption Hospitality. With this association, eRevMax has successfully completed a two way interface with CRONO PMS developed by Caption Hospitality and it would allow them to offer automated channel management and reservation delivery to standalone properties across the APAC region.
With this integration, hoteliers using the Caption Hospitality’s CRONO PMS will be able to distribute the availability and pricing of their inventory to major OTAs directly from their property management system and receive reservations directly through RateTiger, RTConnect and LIVE OS, various distribution tools offered by eRevMax. The availability status and prices will automatically be updated across all the connected online sales channels including GDS, OTAs, metasearch channels and other channels. This would minimise the effort required in the process and ensure that the information is synchronised across all channels without manual intervention.
“Lower tier travel accommodation providers in developing countries have been facing challenges trying to strive for business in the online world. Through this partnership, we are solving technology challenges for hotel owners through a solution that is simple and easy to operate. Using a single control panel on Caption Hospitality’s CRONO, they will be connected to multiple online travel agents globally with the help of eRevMax,” said Larry Chua, Co-founder, Caption Hospitality.
“Our interface with Caption Hospitality’s Crono PMS provides independent hoteliers the best way to manage online channels cost effectively without worrying about maintaining online inventory manually across each booking website. A greater number of hotels can now leverage the benefits of our Channel Ecosystem while streamlining their distribution efforts. The secure XML connection ensures live rate and inventory updates as well as booking data retrieval, thereby keeping the hotel PMS updated at all times,” said Ashis Saha, SVP – Project Management, eRevMax.
CRONO was developed by Caption Hospitality to provide a reliable and easy to use solution for independent budget hotel properties to handle their day to day processes. Targeted primarily at three star and below properties, CRONO can handle front office check-in process, payments, inventories, accounting, marketing and lot more for the property. This strategic partnership would help hotels streamline their sales by using only one application for revenue and distribution management.
