arcRes GDS/IDS Channel Management (Managing Distribution prices).

arcRes channel manager:

You may use the Group system to create and store prices for all your distribution partners (Expedia, Travelocity etc).

The % option (discount and markup) quickly creates a new group based on rack or net-net costs.
For more complex rates you may setup an entirely new set of seasons and rates for each unit.

We will work with any partner so that rates in arcRes Bookings-Expert can be written directly to their database (using XML)

Costs on this will vary with each distribution partner.

The advantage is that you need only use one system and maintain one set of rates for all partners.

This is a considerably saving of time for resorts with several distribution partners.

Many Internet distributors and agents now require that resorts maintain their own rates.
