HotelOnline, an online hotel booking software suite firm that helps hotels get online bookings through its super simple, cloud-based dashboard to manage bookings, rates and availability from one place has signed up over 1,500 hotels and accommodation providers across 17 markets in Africa, Europe and South Asia.
Connected to the major online booking channels, Hotel Online bookings come straight into the dashboard, and any changes are immediately reflected in all the online channels. Hotel Online is a Property Management System (PMS) with an integrated Channel Manager.
“Most local hotels in Africa find the whole process of marketing themselves online, challenging. So we offer that as an auxiliary service: We take high-quality pictures, and we build high-quality profiles on Expedia, CTrip, HRS, Hotelbeds, etc, as well as web sites with integrated booking engines,” said HotelOnline’s Executive Chairman Håvar Bauck. “The whole idea is that most hotels that are not already online, need a bit of help to get started, and that’s what we offer them. Along with the tools to get the most out of it once they get there.”
