A Channel Manager (CM) is a tool that lets connect to several OTAs, manage and sell inventory simultaneously (booking.com portals like Expedia, Airbnb ...) from a single screen.
Your Channel Manager is responsible for receiving all reservations and replicate them on your Clerk Dashboard. So new booking appear, are modify and are automatically canceled without moving a finger.
Once you decide and define your sales strategy you only need to set the inventory and rates and that is all!
With your CM you can:
- Make inventory changes
- Close dates / Open Dates
- Change Rates
- Open / Close promotions
- Monitor all bookings registered OTAs connected
With CM you can't (These are actions you need to do directly on the extranet of the OTA):
- Cancel reservations
- Mark no-shows
- Making changes in your profile and types of units
- Create promotions (once created on the extranet we can replicate in CMif you want).
- Pay your fees/commissions
Request a video call with our support team in order to receive a full demonstration (Channel manager isn't on free trial as we actually need to connect everything and this is a long term decision).
