If a hotel website is its shop window, then the booking engine is its primary sales tool. While guest impression starts at the outset of the traveler journey – exceptional service starts at the booking stage. Booking engines now have to be as responsive as the websites they integrate with – in terms of display, functionality and performance – working perfectly on any device and in any browser. Added functionality enables a hotel to cross sell and upsell products through promotional pricing, dynamic packaging and other add-ons as well as via individual website pages.

It is quite a unique juxtaposition.  For a hotel, OTA bookings are deemed expensive in CPA terms (cost per acquisition) given commission and parity demands that have to be met.   In today’s competitive market place, a hotel needs to strike a sensible balance between its level of OTA and direct, commission-free bookings.  Attuned already to these requirements and in anticipation of future market changes, Globres has developed solutions that enable a hotel to keep a profitable foot in both OTA and Direct channels.
