Cloud Hotel Management Software firm Frontdesk Anywhere now seamlessly connects to HostelsClub and Epoque Hotels, expanding its current portfolio of Online Travel Agencies (OTAs) to more than 140.
Cloud Hotel Management Software firm Frontdesk Anywhere expands its reach of hotel sales distribution available to its customers. Epoque Hotels and HostelsClub join the ranks of Booking.com, Expedia.com and over 140 other online travel agencies that Frontdesk Anywhere hotel customers are able to list their properties on.
Epoque Hotels is a leading provider in the luxury boutique hotels segment with listings in more than 100 countries. HostelsClub.com is an online travel agency listing budget accommodation and hostels all over the world.
Today, maximizing online exposure is key as more than 148 million bookings were made online last year. However, being listed with multiple Online Travel Agencies can lead to over-bookings and requires a great deal of management by the hotelier. Frontdesk Anywhere’s FDx channel manager centralizes inventory and rates across all channels the hotel is listed on with real time updates.
“Frontdesk Anywhere is focused on providing easy-to-use cloud-based hotel management software” stated Frontdesk Anywhere co-founder, Thomas Lyle. “Integrating our powerful channel management platform into our service allows hotels to manage their inventory directly from within the hotel PMS while making their rooms available on OTAs. All reservations are received in the system with no manual intervention required. It’s the best of both worlds with regards to both visibility and ease of operations.”
Eric Jursin, owner of the Tavern Hotel in Cottonwood, AZ has been using online distribution for several years. “Linking my hotel management software directly to OTAs made perfect sense. My Frontdesk Anywhere account handles all my booking retrievals and updates my inventory across all channels so I no longer oversell my rooms.”
