Updater Premium expands real-time inventory management capabilities to make it easier than ever for hoteliers to boost the performance of the growing number of Internet distribution channels, all from a single interface.

FastBooking, one of the world’s leading e-marketing and online technology solutions providers for the hospitality industry, announces FastBooking Updater Premium, adding new functionalities to its industry-leading channel management tool.

With the proliferation of on-line booking channels working to capture as much booking volume as possible, today’s hotelier is faced with an increasing number of websites and extranets to manage.

For independent hotels, FastBooking Updater provides a solution to the time consuming task of trying to manually update myriad hotel booking channels,” says Jessica Marchal De Corny, FastBooking Product Manager.

All extranets are visible in a single table on the same screen eliminating the need to go through each extranet individually.

New features include:
  • Powerful reporting tools.  The Channel Optimizer collects and stores reservations made on Internet distribution sites in a single database and generates business reports for at-a-glance visibility of channel performance for the hotel.  Standard and customer reports help better manage the hotel’s offer.
  • Centrally managed inventory: Allotments are automatically adjusted and dispatched to all channels. The Central Allotment feature ensures that rooms are always available on all distribution channels to create booking opportunities and capture more business. Once the hotelier loads an initial allotment, FastBooking Updater Premium adjusts the allotment according to the incoming bookings to make sure it is always evenly distributed across all channels. Bookings are processed in real time to avoid overbooking. Allotments are updated across all channels.
  • Automatic, real-time booking feed into the hotels’ PMS to minimize manual intervention. As an additional option,Updater Premium can automatically load the bookings collected from the hotel’s Internet distribution sites into the PMS. Real-time processing of bookings into the PMS results in exact inventory status at all times and reduces manual inputs into the PMS.

Fastbooking Updater is a reliable channel management solution with a success rate of 98.5%, the highest in the industry!  FastBooking Updater Premium builds on the existing, user-friendly channel management interface of FastBooking Updater to boost Internet distribution performance in the long-term:

  • Save time,
  • Manage all rates and channels from a single screen,
  • Monitor distribution site performance,
  • Follow performance and profitability,
  • Improve reactivity to market changes
