What is Channel Management
The Channel Management is a process of managing the online distribution channels in order to sell a property inventory to different agents across the globe. It is the best way to bring a global audience without risking overbookings to your business.
Developped by the Travel and Hotel Industry, the Channel management allows Property Managers to partner with a large range of ditributing agents, from Major Portals, to OTAs and to small local agents in different markets.
A Vacation Channel Manager updates your inventory automatically across all your channels, to provide guests, wherever they come from, with accurate information on property, price and availability to book instantly.
