A stunning seaside luxury property at the heart of The Jeddah Waterfront, The Venue describes RateTiger as the best channel manager, after it witnessed 37% increase in online sales since implementing RTConnect, which links the hotel’s Micros PMS with its choice of multiple OTA partners. The revenue management team at The Venue Jeddah Corniche has been able to efficiently manage and update online rates, inventory, and reservations directly from their Micros PMS in real-time. This has led to reduction in manpower requirement to manage the channels constantly, saving the hotel a lot of time and still providing error-free and quick updates.
“We are delighted to have RateTiger as our connectivity partner – it is a great investment that has given us very good ROI. Over the past couple of years, our reservations have grown by 37% which translates to over 12 million SAR! RateTiger provides all the major OTAs including regional channels and wholesalers to efficiently distribute rates and inventory, which has resulted in improved occupancy and revenue. RateTiger has the highest quality of channel connections and the speed, accuracy, and ease with which we can manage our online operations is fantastic,” said Anas Arjawi, Revenue & E-Commerce Manager, The Venue Jeddah Corniche.
The 5-star property also uses RateTiger’s On-Demand Shopper to monitor market trends and rate movement across various channels as well as RateTiger Booking Engine for improving direct bookings. Anas further states, “RateTiger’s pricing reports are very useful as they are in real-time and accurate. We know when competitors are changing prices and we can act immediately and modify our rates to suit our strategy.”
“Saudi Arabia is currently one of the top tourist destinations, and it is important for hotels to keep rate competitive and show availability across sales channels to attract guests. RateTiger’s motto is to help hotels ‘Save Time, Make Money’ and this recommendation is a true testimony to our efforts. We are glad that our extensive channel ecosystem has helped The Venue to improve exposure and tap new markets. We continue to invest in our channel connectivity and system infrastructure to provide hotels with solutions that they can benefit from daily,” said Swati Keshri, Regional Sales Manager – EMEA, eRevMax
