TravelgateX and Pruvo team up to increase the profitability of hotel reservations
Posted by Vero
The companies specializing in travel technology join in an agreement that will allow OTAs, travel agencies, hotel wholesalers to increase the profits of their reservations. In a significant proportion of bookings, hotel prices tend to drop between the time of booking and the check-in date, creating a great opportunity to increase profitability after the reservation was already made.
At the present time, the tourism industry is experiencing unprecedented times, therefore, these two technology companies come together to increase the profitability of TravelgateX´s partners, using the most innovative solutions.
Statistics show that around 40% of bookings tend to suffer a price drop from the moment a reservation was made until it´s last date of free cancellation. Pruvo‘s solution takes advantage of these price drops to help travel resellers increase profits.
Pruvo is an automatic service based on Artificial Intelligence that tracks reservations that were made through any provider and monitors the net prices 24/7 in order to find a better rate for the same room with the same or better conditions. Once Pruvo detects a better rate, Pruvo rebooks the initial reservation with a new reservation, thereby increasing the margin of profit of the reservation.
The agreement signed between the technology companies will allow companies such as OTAs, travel agencies, hotel wholesalers to access the Pruvo “Repricing” service and thus increase profits that will not require effort on behalf of TravelgateX´s partners.
“In these difficult times the travel sector is experiencing, it is important to provide technological solutions that can help confront the situation and get the maximum profit margin for each reservation”, comments Itai Marcipar CEO Pruvo.
Pruvo and TravelgateX are two different but complementary businesses. “With this agreement, OTAs, travel agencies, wholesalers, will be able to take advantage to increase their profitability and generate more additional profits,” say Jose Díaz, CCO TravelgateX.
The agreement between the two technology companies will allow each TravelgateX customer to customize the solution to their needs, such as choosing between the fully automated or semi-automatic reservation procedure through a single click.
