As you may already know, Booking.com has made the difficult decision to discontinue its BookingSuite products, including WebDirect, BookingButton, and RateIntelligence as of November 30, 2020. The news shocked both the industry and the users, leading hoteliers to find an alternative.
We are here to tell you that there is no need to worry! As Booking.com’s Premier Connectivity Partner for the 7th year in a row, we know exactly what BookingSuite users want. There may be many great alternatives to each BookingSuite product but what if you can find all three of these products in one platform with an affordable price and advanced technology.
Global reach with a secure website
We know how much you love having an easy to build, affordable, and mobile-friendly website thanks to Booking.com’s WebDirect. With HotelRunner you can have a mobile-friendly website, an easy-to-use control panel, and secure hosting for free!. You can start accepting online bookings and payments with HotelRunner’s dozens of integrated payment methods within minutes. This is what you already have, isn’t it? What about inventory, content, and rate management, built-in SEO, or an online, secure and continually backed up system? If these aren’t enough, we can always promote your website in up to 84 languages, 159 currencies, and local tax rates.
Commission-free direct sales channels
We wouldn’t be offended if you already have a website created by expert designers. But what would be a website without a well functioning and fully integrated booking engine? With HotelRunner’s booking engine you can connect your website to your inventory and display your rates and availability in real-time. A few other companies may also provide you with this. However, not too many of them can help you receive bookings from your property’s Facebook page. HotelRunner also provides you with a powerful promotion engine allowing you to promote and sell more services on your website. All so that you can increase your direct bookings and revenue.
Comprehensive analysis of your competitors’ rates
Of course, we haven’t forgotten RateIntelligence, a rate-shopping tool included in the BookingSuite. We understand that having an in-depth insight into your competitors’ room rates is key. Fortunately, HotelRunner’s latest acquisition, RateFor is at your service. RateFor allows you to optimize your own rates by analyzing the rates of competing properties in your region on the 18 most popular online sales channels instantly. With RateFor, you can view which rooms of your property are sold, on which platform, and at what rate in real-time, ensuring rate parity.
Let us guide you through your transition from BookingSuite. We would love to be a part of your journey ahead and help you increase your revenue and performance as we have been doing for thousands of Booking.com users for more than 8 years.
