The Philippine-based hotel chain, Bellevue Hotels and Resorts, has recommended RateTiger for centralising online distribution.
According to Bellevue Hotels and Resorts, which operates four luxury and midscale hotels across the Philippines, they have begun using RateTiger on the LiveOS platform earlier this year and it has proven to be a “hotel’s best friend”.
Before the brand used RateTiger, it stated that the team was grappling with its diverse guest profile and online distribution. Its revenue management team is in charge of operating premier properties in the country such as the Bellevue Manila and the Bellevue Resort Bohol; along with midscale properties in Alabang and Quezon City with its B Hotels.
“Works like magic!”
Speaking about RateTiger’s features, Annie Bisuna, revenue director at Bellevue Hotels and Resorts, commented: “The most important feature for me is RateTiger Channel Manager. Being able to view all four properties at one time on LiveOS has a great impact on me in terms of time and efficiency. The “smart fill” feature works like magic! I just use this field, and in 2 steps, all my different room categories would be live and bookable!”
The hotel chain is currently using RateTiger Channel Manager and On Demand Shopping available on LiveOS — the hospitality operating platform by eRevMax, which offers seamless connectivity with over 350 distribution partners including OTAs, metasearch channels, GDS, wholesalers and offline tour operators. This provides the brand with the opportunity to boost reservations and revenue, and attract larger segments from both the corporate and leisure markets.
“Share secrets by showing rates of our competitors”
Bisuna added: “RateTiger is my new best friend. We hang out most of the time – that is during duty hours, share secrets by showing rates of our competitors through their Shopping on Demand tool and gives advice on how to position our properties in terms of pricing with the objective of maximising revenue. I am truly satisfied having the chance to do a partnership with RateTiger and would highly recommend to other hotels.”
Bellevue Hotels and Resorts is also using an On-Demand-Shopping tool to generate a real-time rate shopping report. RateTiger Shopper captures all its competitors’ rate data across hundreds of websites and delivers granular analysis to monitor market dynamics on time.
