eRevMax offers seamless connectivity
The new solution called LIVE OS will help its travel partners offer services with easier integration process in a conducive environment
eRevMax, known in hotel industry for its next generation innovative e-products including 'RateTiger', has now come up with a single sign-on solution allowing hotels to access multiple technology providers. These include revenue management, central reservation systems, distribution channels, market intelligence tools, property management systems, guest management platforms and other services from one “easy to use” platform. The objective of the new solution called LIVE OS is to help its travel partner to offer services to more hotels with easier integration process.
The first hospitality operating platform – which connects technology providers to hotels – in an integrated environment. The world’s largest taxi firm, Uber, owns no cars. The world’s most popular media company, Facebook, creates no content. The world’s most valuable retailer, Alibaba, carries no stock. And the world’s largest accommodation provider, Airbnb, owns no property. LIVE OS from the eRevMax’ stable, is taking hotel management to a different level, top company officials said. eRevMax, whose holding company eRevMax International is based in Dublin, Ireland, has its Global Technology Centre based out of Kolkata.
“We are looking for more hotel providers to partner with LIVE OS to add more value to our hotel clients. We have been receiving very positive feedback and would like them to take advantage of a great opportunity to have more access to global hotels. The LIVE OS platform makes it easy for hotels to access the providers they work within one solution with single sign on. The provider retains a stronger relationship with the hotel and gets the opportunity to reach out to thousands of hotels globally through the built in marketplace in LIVE OS,” said Reuel Ghosh, chief executive officer, eRevMax.
eRevMax has processed $2.1 billion worth of reservation revenue for its hotel clients in 2016. This is an increase of over 11 per cent in reservation revenue as compared to the previous year. Hoteliers continue to increase online bookings through eRevMax platforms leveraging its seamless connectivity with over 300 global and regional OTAs and partners. These figures are based on the revenue generated by hotel clients using its reservation delivery services through RateTiger, RTConnect and LIVE OS solutions. The company has also processed 464 million ARI requests in 2016 initiated by clients on its robust and stable systems, said Udai Singh Solanki, chief technology officer at eRevMax.
Significantly, when it comes to India, online travel is growing at between 35-40 per cent in the country, the fastest in the world and the company is keen on leveraging that. Discerning travellers today look for competitive rates, exhaustive choices, room availability and last minute deals. With eRevMax embracing new technology and offering seamless connectivity, this would bring unparalleled convenience to its hotel partners. eRevMax has a significant customer base with top hotel chains like The Park, Royal Orchid, The Leela and The Oberoi, to name a few.
“We live by our principle of ensuring customer benefit and the numbers here manifest our success in assisting hotels increase their online revenue. Being in the business for 15 years with our ‘customer-first approach’, we have been proactively integrating new channel and technology partners to our ecosystem to provide hotels with seamless distribution experience and wider market reach. I believe this growth in reservation volume is a testimony to the joint success of eRevMax, our partners and hotel clients,” said Solanki.
