Myallocator by Cloudbeds powers inventory deliverability for thousands of hotels, hostels, and B&Bs in over 100 countries across the globe. With over 300 integrated marketing channels, it has more than any other channel manager on the market. This gives hoteliers the freedom to list their inventory with previously unknown online marketplaces.
“We’re thrilled to give our hotel customers access to China’s leading travel agency, Ctrip,” said Adam Harris, CEO of Cloudbeds. “China is a booming travel market with over 100 million travelers each year. We’re excited to give Chinese travelers more travel options with this partnership.”
Independent hoteliers have had a hard time listing their vacant inventory with OTAs. Each OTA has it’s own set of hurdles to leap through to get connected. This has led to an environment where franchises and large groups have dominated OTA listings.
Cloudbeds created their channel manager myallocator to make it easier to connect to online marketplaces. Myallocator saves hoteliers time and money by eliminating the need for technical know-how to get listed. It helps hoteliers list their rooms on as many OTAs as they wish with the push of a button. Plus, it exposes their rooms to new marketplaces hoteliers might not have known existed.
