The hospitality market has become extremely competitive due to increasing number of channels available through the Internet. The large hotel brands are consolidating to provide a more complete product offering ranging from ultra high end hotels to economy suites and extended stay motels. The creation of the “econo-lux” property offering puts pressure on small and independent hospitality providers and has increased their need to compete.
While many small and independent travel providers may be online, they are not “connected” to Global Distribution Systems. This is why Open Travel Software has developed its Hotel Management System; back end software with the capability to launch these companies into the online marketplace where they can compete side by side with the largest providers in the industry.
