A desire to make distribution easier
James Cage from Explore Tekapo had worked with STAAH previously. A hospitality industry veteran, he understood the role good technology partners play in a property’s success.
His priority was to create and implement a distribution strategy that allowed them to use the best channels available to increase bookings, without spending too much in commission fees.
Unfortunately, it was difficult to do this without the right channel management and website booking technology.
STAAH streamlined operations
Having worked with STAAH previously and knowing first-hand how easy it was to use and effective in its delivery, James decided to get the STAAH Max bundle for Explore Lake Tekapo.
STAAH booking engine along with STAAH InstantSite website and STAAH channel manager were quickly implemented and the staff trained on the tools in no time.
STAAH channel manager and booking engine are jam-packed with features to attract and convert online bookings, including dynamic rates management, promotions, minimum stay, etc.
“You can count on STAAH’s reliability when it comes to updating rates and available in real-time,” says James. “It offers rich insights and when learnings are applied, booking trend upwards.”
Messaging guests, charging the credit card and similar simple tasks can be easily performed via STAAH.
“It’s all under one roof, saving our staff a lot of admin time. This time is now well spent in improving the guest experience,” says James.
While James remains an advocate of all solutions STAAH offers, he points to Bulk Updates and OTA Promotion features as ones his team and him most enjoy and would highly recommend it to others in the hospitality industry.
