I have just set up our occupancy derived rates on our system and after taking a while to get it right, hey presto - works on my website and the OTA's. Thank you guys, this will make a big difference to managing the property inventory.

We have been using the integrated channel management (...). This has really lightened the workload and our room distribution has noticeably benefited from the XML-connectivity employed by Clock.

The Quest for better online distribution - modern vs retro, feat. Clock PMS
Watch the movie
Invisible operation. Visible results.
Less time and effort
Automatic inventory update and booking capture on all channels.
More sales opportunities
Every rate update, every late cancellation goes on sale instantly.
Set rules to minimise or fully prevent overbooking risk.
Just one system to use
Manage OTA rates and rules directly from the PMS.
Instant inventory update without you lifting a finger
Literally. The channel manager sends automatic inventory update to all connected OTAs, GDS and CRS virtually after every new booking, cancellation, update, block, release block or room status update**.
** Clock PMS caches all inventory updates, prioritizes their urgency and sends them in regular updates through our XML connectivity partners who distribute them to the OTA as soon as possible.
Easier distribution of your online rates straight from the PMS
The system does everything automatically and you never need to worry about rate synchronisation, changing prices, or stop sale to prevent overbooking.**
** Set your online rates directly in Clock PMS and map them to the OTA products. Any time you change a rate (or a restriction), the integrated channel manager will distribute it to the connected channels.
Fancy maximising revenue through smarter rate management?
Use one single BAR* for all channels or set different rates, closing rules and restrictions for each OTA. Set derived and occupancy adaptable rates and see how your prices on the OTAs change depending on your actual occupancy or when you change a related rate.
All online bookings and changes to their parameters are automatically downloaded and stored in Clock PMS. You can find and handle them just like other bookings. All information on booking reference numbers and marketing channels & segments is retrieved and saved, too.
Prevent overbooking but sell each late cancellation, too
Need to minimise overbooking risk? Use blocks to make sure you don’t oversell guaranteed OTA allotments. Or, let Clock PMS automatically set very high rates for the last available rooms. Or, simply set stop sale restrictions so that some channels start closing before others.
As for the duds, Clock PMS will put late cancellations up for sale, so you don't miss any opportunities.
