Paris, France; April 26, 2011

FastBooking, has signed an accord with the Groupe Lucien Barrière, to implement FastBooking Updater, the powerful Internet-based channel management solution in twelve of the  Groupe’s French and Moroccan hotels.

FastBooking is the European leader in e-marketing and online booking solutions for the hospitality industry providing products and services to maximize a hotel’s highly profitable direct website bookings. Group Lucien Barrière is the reference in luxury hotels in France with a collection of four- and five-star hôtels de charme  in the country’s most coveted destinations.

We chose FastBooking Updater for its speed and flexibility. FastBooking knew how to adapt to our needs and meet our expectations,” says Philippe Coquand, Director, Revenue Management and Hotellerie Distribution for Lucien Barrière Hotels & Casinos.

FastBooking Updater lets hoteliers automatically update their rates and availability on all their online distribution channels from a single online interface. Each of the Lucien Barrière hotels has a different distribution mix. FastBooking Updater has been customized for each property so that each hotel can manage its channels –up to 20 at a time can be updated simultaneously, along with the hotel’s own website.

Our goal is and always has been to provide the leading edge solutions that give hotels a competitive edge. We are proud to partner with this leading luxury group,” says FastBooking Vice President Sales EMEA, Paul Ponçon.

Unique features add power

FastBooking Updater operates as an extranet. Using the refresh functionality hoteliers can connect to all distribution websites at any time and collect fresh data, to work in real time with stock, allotment and rates.

Updater’s ‘One Click Parity’ function allows hoteliers to publish a consistent room rate by room category to all third party websites, in a single click, in real time. It automatically adjusts for different, complex third party pricing strategies so that guests see rate consistency across all Internet channels, resulting in more bookings and less shopping–ensuring that all-important rate parity. The fact that FastBooking Updater runs as an extranet ensures optimum speed and reliability.

FastBooking Updater can be complemented with an optional module, the FastBooking Channel Profit Optimizer.This tool provides a centralized, single-screen report showing the bookings made on the hotel’s various distribution channels.

FastBooking Updater is fully integrated with the FastBooking services platform and interfaces seamlessly with FastBooking Checker and the FastBooking Engine.
