PMS Distribution


StayNTouch can interface to a multi-property or single hotel’s partner (e.g., channel manager, central reservation system, or hotel marketing automation) in order to: 

  • Distribute rates and inventory across all channels (OTAs, GDS, and IBE) 
  • Handle group control
  • Manage company, agency, and guest profiles 
  • Send guest communications (confirmation messages, post-stay emails, etc.)
  • Offer promotions (upgrades, add-ons, etc.)


Channel Manager: Siteminder


Integration to a channel manager provides Rover PMS the ability to distribute available rooms, rates and restrictions to offline and online travel agents (OTA’s) and/or Global Reservation Systems (GDS). Reservations made through these OTA’s are imported automatically Rover PMS. Many channel managers also offer an internet bookings engine.
