GERMAN HOTEL ASSOCIATION ENDORSE RATE TIGER SUITES

26-Sep-2007

Rate Tiger has been officially endorsed by the Hotelverband Deutschland (IHA), the German Association of Hoteliers, as the leading online distribution and channel management software suite.

Rate Tiger’s international expansion and strong relationships with online distribution channels made it the natural partner for the Hotelverband Deutschland.

The Hotelverband Deutschland chose Rate Tiger for its quality, flexibility, ease of use and stability, allowing hoteliers to manage room rates and inventory through numerous online distribution channels more efficiently.

Germany’s leading representative body for the hospitality industry has also been impressed by Rate Tiger’s move to offer affordable products that are manageable for small hotels in the form of RT Shopper Lite and RT Allocator Lite.

“Rate Tiger’s innovative product suites have proven to bring substantial rewards for many of our members,” says Markus Luthe, CEO of Hotelverband Deutschland. “We work to educate and inform our members on developments across the industries and managing inventory on the internet is proving to be the biggest challenge for them. Online distribution channels can take up a lot of time and need to be managed with time-efficiency in mind.”

“It’s an honour that the national body of hoteliers in Germany has chosen Rate Tiger as the product to help assist and manage their online channels,” says Sascha Hausmann, Chief Operating Officer. “This will make our presence in Europe much stronger and we hope it will contribute to understanding our customers and the challenges they face marketing their portfolio online better.”

As part of this endorsement, all members of the German Association of Hoteliers will receive an affiliate discount on all RT products, including the new versions of RT Shopper and RT Allocator Lite and Pro.

This is yet another step in Rate Tiger’s continuing expansion strategy in Europe over the next 12 months.
