Open Hospitality and Ratetiger Sign Joint Marketing Agreement for Social Media Channel Solutions
Open Hospitality, a global provider of hotel Internet marketing solutions and RateTiger, the highly successful revenue management solution by eRevMax, have signed a marketing agreement to deliver reservation processing via Facebook social media on a global basis. The agreement will enable hotels to utilize all the channel management capabilities of RateTiger to distribute inventory and rates to Open's online reservation booking engine on the hotel's facebook presence.
"Facebook is the most broadly adopted and fastest growing social media portal. When we created the industry’s first integrated reservation solution early in 2010, we knew that hotels would ultimately want to manage it like their other channels," remarked Chris Wichers, executive vice president of Open Hospitality. "Our existing relationship with eRevMax created the foundation to expand our joint marketing efforts on a global basis."
"Online distribution is now beyond OTA connections but ensuring the property is available across all consumer platforms," added Ragnar Strerath, Division President - RTConnect at eRevMax. "Many hoteliers are struggling to keep up with the online environment; by creating these connections they can take advantage of these new sales opportunities easily and seamlessly."
In addition, Open Hospitality provides fully managed Facebook and Twitter services releasing hotels from the day-to-day responsibility for updates and fan/follower comment follow up. For more information about hotel social media marketing contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
