ReX will enable Best Western properties to leverage the benefits of a direct connect with leading third party channels and improve their online presence and room revenues. 18 Best Western properties across the country have already partnered with RezNext for the intelligent distribution offering.
ReX connects real-time two-way with distribution channels allowing these Best Western properties to be in complete control of their room reservation processes. Inventory and rates will flow automatically from these hotels to leading distribution channels like Via, Goibibo, Cleartrip, Yatra, Travelguru, through ReX. Similarly bookings from these distribution channels will be updated back into the hotel system automatically.
According to Pranav Bharadwaj, Director of Sales & Marketing at Best Western India, “Online distribution is a significant business source for our Best Western properties. We want to stay on top of our business and be able to monitor the performance real-time.
