The Challenge:

Independent mid-size hotels face a daunting challenge – limited resources for personnel and boosting occupancy. They must closely monitor numerous online and offline channels, adapting Availability, Rates, and Inventory (ARI) updates based on customer behaviour and channel performance.

Complexity of Channel Management: This approach, while basic, requires constant monitoring of various parameters like online reviews, pricing strategies, and rate changes, both for the hotel and its competitors. Creating a solid strategy for choosing the right OTAs and channels becomes critical but demanding.

Staffing Realities: Realistically, finding and affording a reliable, redundant staff to manage these tasks efficiently is a persistent struggle for these hotels.

Challenges Faced by hotels:

The challenges faced by independent mid-size hotels are manyfold from limited resource availability and allocation dedicated to personnel, to increasing occupancy by closely monitoring all the connected OTAs & offline channels, to understanding their behaviour and managing all of this and more in a single day.
The behaviour combined with the consumer booking pattern generally dictate the frequency of ARI (Availability, Rates, Inventory) updates.
While the above is a simplistic approach to managing online distribution, it however needs a constant vigil of additional parameters such as online reviews, pricing strategies, frequency of rate change etc of your hotel and your competition set to come up with a comprehensive strategy for choosing the right set of OTAs and other channels for ARI (Availability, Rates, Inventory) distribution.
In addition to the above pointers the realistic challenge is the availability, affordability and redundancy of staff to manage these functions day in and day out efficiently.
This is where the services of OccuMax have become increasingly important for mid segment and independent hotels.
Our back-end team takes over in collaboration with the hotel the tasks of setting up, monitoring and actioning all your connectivity and setting SOPs in place to impactfully increase occupancy and revenue. We deliver higher attention to all the parameters impacting occupancy, forecasting, optimising rates that are published to OTAs and other sales channels for the hotel including competition tracking, rate change recommendations and online review management.
OccuMax goes the last mile to setup our PMS, channel manager and your booking site at no additional cost to you including managing google AdWords for your hotel, so when the next
customer searches for hotels in your area your hotel reflects in the top 5-6 listings thanks to your own brand.com (created by our teams) and books directly on your website without being redirected creating a lasting brand recall.
