Mapping CRS Rates in Rover
There is no mapping that needs to be done between Rover and systems like Amadeus, Galileo, Worldspan, Sabre, Booking.com, etc., as there is no direct interface between Rover and those systems. We interface with Central Reservation Systems (SiteMinder, TravelClick, SynXis, etc.), and they interface with Global Distribution Systems.
For CRSs, we need to map payment type, market segment, and source code, as well as room type and rate code. In this segment, we will cover the mapping that needs to be done between Rover and your CRS for rate and room type. Any rates and corresponding room types you want sold by your CRS need to be mapped under Settings > Rates > Channel Managers. The rates and room types must have a 1:1 mapping with the rates and room types on the CRS.
Next, select the active channel manager for which you wish to map (or modify) a rate. Please note, only active integrations will be toggled ON. In the provided example, we will use SynXis, but the process is the same for all CRSs.
To map a new rate, select +ADD NEW.
Begin typing the rate name you wish to map.
The display will now show all associated room types for this rate. Click the green arrow to include all (most common). You may also exclude specific room types from messages sent to the CRS by not including them in the Assigned Room Types list on the right hand side.
Then, scroll to the bottom and select SAVE.
To disable rate messages already configured, you can toggle them OFF from the CHANNEL MANAGER RATES screen.
You may also select the rate name to edit the room types as in the previous step.
