Hotel channel manager eRevMax has completed a two-way XML integration with Fastpayhotels, a recently launched B2B hotel distribution platform.
Accommodation providers using eRevMax distribution solutions RTConnect, RateTiger and LIVE OS can now make real-time rate and availability updates and receive automatic transfer of bookings received in the channel.
Fastpayhotels is a B2B operator which pays all reservations at the time of bookings up to 390 days in advance with no refunds for cancellations.
Alex Gisbert, chief executive of Fastpayhotels, said: “Fastpayhotels was launched to evolve the relationship between hotels and agencies by removing the issues of slow-paying bed banks, booking websites that display incorrect rates because they can’t be updated in real-time, and the inability to access the lowest room rates.
“By leveraging the global supply of RateTiger’s channel manager we can fulfil the rapidly growing demand for Fastpayhotels’ simple, cost efficient system.
“We are excited that eRevMax’s 9,000 customers will now be able to benefit from our commission levels that are below fourteen percent.”
Ashis Saha, senior vice president – project management, eRevMax, added: “Given that we cater to properties ranging from independent properties to enterprise hotel groups, this will result in more efficient rate distribution, enhanced rate optimization and the streamlining of connections for our hotel customers.
“The integration with Fastpayhotels will give our hotel customers in the region a channel to sell the aggressive prepaid non-refundable rates that they only make available on their own sites and not to the B2B channels.”
