Forestdale Hotels Installs RateTiger

Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Monday, 10 August 2009

Forestdale Hotels has installed RateTigers online channel management products across 13 of its 18 properties as part of its revenue strategy to maintain rate parity across the internet.

The British hotel chain, whose properties are principally located in England, wanted to maximise occupancy and rates by introducing rate parity across all booking channels whilst reducing the impact it had on employees time.

We needed to ensure rate parity across all our distribution channels and it needed to be accurate, said Annie Jones, Sales Director. Our hotels had been limited to selling across a small number of channels but by installing RTSuite, we have been able to substantially increase our exposure to more channels .The best way of doing this is through a channel management solution that ensures all rates and inventory allocations are accurate and updated in real-time. This provides consistency.

Besides being able to manage more sites, RTSuite has provided an immediate return on investment through an increase in RevPAR. Right now, investing in a channel management tool means we have been able to maintain revenue management at hotel level rather than needing to recruit a full-time central ecommerce manager.

Forestdale Hotels began almost forty years ago, with the acquisition of the Forest Park Hotel, Brockenhurst, in the New Forest. The company has grown steadily since then and now has eighteen hotels in the UK.
