In 2016, travelers will see hotel rates increase up to 8 percent and the millennial generation (those between 20-35 years age) will replace baby boomers as dominant travelers by the year 2017. As mentioned, mobile devices and apps will enable more personalized services for guests. More than half of travelers agree that their smart phones are important, even critical.

Customers are looking for the best quality

Channel managers efficiently manage the online distribution channels that their particularly property sells through. They allow smaller chains to give booking websites their most up to date rates, using a pool-type inventory module.

They give smaller chains two main benefits: the ability to sell as many rooms as possible through as many channels without overbooking. Also, there is reduced administrative costs by managing inventory and rooms rates from one central location. The ideal situation is when a hotel's channel management program integrates with the property management system. It should offer live inventory (available rooms) or be able to close out any or all channels when occupancy shows they are needed.
