We are excited to announce that we have established a powerful direct 2-way connection to Oktogo.ru – the leading Russian online hotel booking and travel company. With over 4,000 hotels in Russia in its database and 250,000 hotels world wide, Oktogo.ru boasts the largest and most relevant hotel offering for both Russian and foreign travelers in the Russia. This solution will enable the hotel to manage all rates, inventory and availability from its Colibri Property Management System and to receive reservations directly into its Reservation Board.
Direct connection allows us to lower the channel management fees by removing an intermediate tier between the hotel and the booking portal. As a side benefit it makes the reservation gathering, availability and price update a bit faster, more stable and secure because bites of the information should not go through an extra step in the Hotel <-> Channel chain.
