Ever wondered what a Channel Manager exactly is? You hear it quite often, but every time you hear the word ''Channel Manager'' you have no clue what it is. Let us explain it to you!

Synonyms for the word Channel Manager: CM

A Channel Manager is a system that allows you to easily manage all your rooms, on all connected booking sites, from one single point. Think of adjusting all availability, prices and restrictions in one go. Previously you had to go through every booking site to make manual changes, but now it's all centralized in the Channel Manager. In addition, the system also collects all reservations from the booking sites, which are then redirected to the linked booking system (PMS). In case you don't have a PMS, the reservations are stored and can be viewed in the Channel Manager.
