A channel manager will help you increase the number of distribution agents you partner and distribute your rooms with in the most effective way possible.
Essentially, a channel manager works in cooperation with your property management system. From OTAs to independent retail travel agents, a channel manager gives you an opportunity to form a relationship with the agents who are most likely to book your rooms. It broadcasts your live rates and availability via two-way connections and allows travellers to book your B&B from a multitude of possible locations.
When a reservation is made, the channel manager will automatically update your availability on your PMS and booking channels in real-time. This simplifies the booking process for everyone involved.
A channel manager is a tool that you can use to steadily increase your profits while improving your brand recognition around the globe.
