IDS Next Completes 2-Way Integration of Its Hotel Erp With Staah

India, Bangalore , INDIA. December 06, 2017

IDS Next Business Solutions Pvt. Ltd, a globally leading Hotel ERP provider has announced the integration of its hotel property management system with STAAH's channel manager platform.

With this integration in place, mutual clients of both IDS Next and STAAH can now pull out real-time inventory data from the hotel property management system and can push the same to connected OTAs via STAAH's channel manager solution.

“As our hotel clients' trusted technology partner, we do everything to help them sell more rooms in order to generate maximum revenue. The 2-way integration will automatically send inventory from the hotel PMS to STAAH's platform. Similarly, bookings captured in OTAs will flow back to the hotel PMS via STAAH. This helps them increase their online visibility with less effort,” said Binu Mathews, Chief Executive Officer at IDS Next.

Currently, IDS Next's hotel PMS is in use at over 4300 hotels across the globe. IDS Next's clients using STAAH channel manager platform can now leverage this integration to ensure automatic distribution of room availability on multiple OTAs. Due to this automated 2-way transfer of inventory and booking, hotels don't have to log into each of the OTA's extranet to update the same manually. It also efficiently assists hotels to do away with errors related to bookings and cancellations.

Speaking about the partnership, Gavin Jeddo, Founder & Director at STAAH Ltd said, “This association reinforces our mission and strategy to partner with technology leaders that deliver significant value to properties. Both STAAH and IDS Next are committed to providing solutions that enable properties to compete more effectively in a dynamic online space.”

STAAH's channel manager is in use at over 5000 hotels across 70 countries. It connects its hotel partners with over 200 leading OTAs. STAAH's industry-leading channel manager allows properties to continuously promote available rooms on all their booking channels and immediately update inventory across those channels when a booking is made.

Commenting on the impact of this integration, Pankaj Gupta, Deputy General Manager- Marketing & eCommerce at Mayfair Hotels & Resorts said, “This integration guarantees us that our inventory is distributed and updated across OTAs precisely. Additionally, the channel manager sends back booking / cancellation / amendment done in OTAs to the PMS. The hotel PMS and the channel manager now talk to each other and facilitate a seamless 2-way flow of data. We don't have to now monitor this time consuming activity manually.”

Hotel Spa: Oasis Unplugged

The driving force in current hotel spa trends is the effort to manage unprecedented levels of stress experienced by their clients. Feeling increasingly overwhelmed by demanding careers and technology overload, people are craving places where they can go to momentarily escape the rigors of their daily lives. As a result, spas are positioning themselves as oases of unplugged human connection, where mindfulness and contemplation activities are becoming increasingly important. One leading hotel spa offers their clients the option to experience their treatments in total silence - no music, no talking, and no advice from the therapist - just pure unadulterated silence. Another leading hotel spa is working with a reputable medical clinic to develop a “digital detox” initiative, in which clients will be encouraged to unplug from their devices and engage in mindfulness activities to alleviate the stresses of excessive technology use. Similarly, other spas are counseling clients to resist allowing technology to monopolize their lives, and to engage in meditation and gratitude exercises in its place. The goal is to provide clients with a warm, inviting and tranquil sanctuary from the outside world, in addition to also providing genuine solutions for better sleep, proper nutrition, stress management and natural self-care. To accomplish this, some spas are incorporating a variety of new approaches - cryotherapy, Himalayan salt therapy and ayurveda treatments are becoming increasingly popular. Other spas are growing their own herbs and performing their treatments in lush outdoor gardens. Some spa therapists are being trained to assess a client's individual movement patterns to determine the most beneficial treatment specifically for them. The July issue of the Hotel Business Review will report on these trends and developments and examine how some hotel spas are integrating them into their operations.
