About Channel Manager Software

What is a channel manager? What is a channel manager?

A channel manager allows for efficient channel management. Channel management is the management of your listings on different Online Travel Agencies (OTAs), booking channels, and other websites where you can list and advertise your short-term rental accommodations. This can be done manually, but is a very time-consuming process. Or it can be automated via a channel manager.

A channel manager is a software that manages the online distribution of short term rentals to online travel agencies (OTA’s), metasearch engines, and other types of booking channels.

Through API’s it enables direct synchronization, either from your PMS or own API or directly, of content, pictures, rates & availability and more across all connected channels. It is therefore a very efficient tool to increase the reach and visibility of properties. Moreover, since it allows you to distribute and sync content, reservations and rates and availability you will save time and gain more control. So a channel manager is a very cost-effective way to manage your hotels, vacation rentals, hostels or resorts across all the booking channels.

Why do you need a channel manager? Why do you need a channel manager?

Whether you manage/own vacation rentals, hotels, hostels, bed and breakfasts, resorts, vacation parks, or a hotel chain, increasing the visibility of your short-term rentals is crucial for obtaining more bookings. One effective method to achieve this is by listing your properties on multiple booking channels, including OTA’s, metasearch engines, online marketplaces, and others. However, manually managing your listings across these various channels can quickly become overwhelming and time-consuming.

That’s where a channel manager comes in. By automating these processes, a channel manager provides a cost-efficient solution to boost your bookings and optimize the distribution strategy for your short-term rentals. With a channel manager, you can streamline and centralize the management of your property listings, ensuring consistent and up-to-date information across all channels. This automation not only saves you time and effort but also minimizes the risk of errors or overbookings.

But the benefits of a channel manager go beyond simplifying your distribution process.

More online bookings. First of all, it will help you increase the amount of online bookings. By providing you with the option to easily connect to multiple channels you will have more online bookings.
Reduced manual work. By automating all processes, manual work will be drastically decreased, giving you more time and enabling you with a better distribution strategy.
Increasing direct bookings. Besides the increase of bookings on the channels, the channel manager also helps in increasing direct bookings. This is due to the fact that when people notice your accommodations on a third party website they are more likely to check out your website as well and book directly from there.
Global and local reach. Many channel managers, including the NextPax full-service channel manager also offer connections to niche-channels. This allows you to target your accommodation more specifically. Moreover, you can easily list on all the major and global booking channels.
Avoid unwanted overbookings. When using a channel manager, all of your rooms or homes, including availability, will be synced across OTA’s. Consequently, you avoid overbookings caused by, for example, human mistakes.
