Up until Recently, Managers have had to reply on 3rd parties to promote their accommodation on line. However, with the advent of the HiSITE On Line Reservations Booking Form, Managers can finally take control of their own business.
HiRUM Property Management Software develops the total business solution in house and our clients are managed through a single on line reservation distribution link from their property to the internet. This enables us to gain a unique overview of the market allowing us to monitor on line reservation trends on a daily basis, which we pass on to our users through our frequent free seminars. This allows HiRUM Property Management Software users to stay ahead of the competition, the proof being the $41M of direct on line reservations so far this year to properties using the total HiRUM Property Management Software solution.
After doing our own investigation, we looked at the on line reservations by percentage and in our analysis, the leading Australian channel delivered 50% more bookings than the Hotels direct on line reservations. However, despite this, the revenue from the HiSITE Channel Manager Booking Form was higher. Factor in the 10% minimum booking fee charged by the channels and the difference in return is substantial. Half as many on line reservations but much more money! We than took a look at a HiRUM Property Manager Software client who has opted to use our tailored online reservation program. His direct on line reservations and revenue are more than double the leading Australian on line channel, all without the minimum 10% agent’s commission.
The HiSITE online reservation software is more than just a Booking Form; it provides a gateway for guests to book on line direct with you. It allows you to offer your guest extras, giving them value add-ons whenever you wish. These drop directly into HiRUM Property Management Software, taking the finger work out of managing your bookings.
Having the total business solution within one solution, developed by one Company, allows you to once again cut out the middle man, inevitably saving you valuable dollars!
