The account management team took us through all the intricate details of the solution and made us realize the benefits of every advanced feature it offers. Their flexibility and in-depth understanding of our requirements complimented with forthcoming approach to suggest new alternatives was much appreciated.”

Mr. S. Sriram, group finance controller commented, “We were quite amazed with some of the advanced features of ChannelGain such as the ability to define rate codes across major OTAs with an option to submit unlimited different codes for our inventory. With ChannelGain, we can now create several rate cards and OTA sites could be easily updated with ease.”

Speaking at this landmark group partnership deal, Mr. Kumar Shetty, group GM said, “As Deepak commented, right from the trial period for just one property in our group we started seeing the benefits of ChannelGain. Functionality of updating so many channels in one go with accuracy helped us to eliminate the human intervention and we decided to go ahead and signed the contract for all our properties. I must congratulate RateGain for creating such an advanced solution that has made our daily tedious task of inventory distribution much easier.”

Mr. Amit Khurana, VP, APAC & Middle East - Hospitality Solutions and his team spearheaded this entire partnership deal. He said, “We are delighted to have a prestigious brand like Ramee Group as our clients in the Middle East region.
