Hotel booking website, Jovago.com, has integrated with SiteMinder’s Channel Manager in a move to hoteliers to seamlessly update their inventory and room rates on the booking portal to increase their hotel bookings and revenues.
“We aim to bring top-notch technology to our hotel partners across all our markets in Africa and SiteMinder offers the right technology to grow our supply of real-time bookable inventory for our customers.” Explained Eduard Posthumus Meyjes, global head of revenue management at Jovago.
The firm says the integration creates a massive opportunity for its large client base of hotels to reach and attract guests, and in return increase both occupancy and revenue. With offices in Kenya and Nigeria and 10 other offices across the continent, Jovago.com says the move will benefit its over 20,000 hotels in Africa.
Jovago launched an extranet application for its hotel clients earlier this year, allowing them to reach operational excellence with the online channel by giving hotel managers real-time access to, and control over, their room rates and inventory.
According to Cyrus Onyiego, the country Manager for Jovago-Kenya, “integration with the market’s leading channel management solution was the logical next step after installing extranet; to offer its hotel clients value-added services as well as bolster convenience on the online-based platform
Jovago.com facilitates the booking process for its users to provide them with the best hotel booking experience with fast, transparent and easy-to-use services. Jovago.com says it has over 200,000 hotels around the world.
