The main advantages of Vik Channel Manager
Vik Channel Manager is a component for Joomla that can interface your own Hotel website with online booking channels (Expedia, Booking.com, Instant Booking by Tripadvisor etc) and external meta search services (TripConnect, Trivago Meta Search). Vik Channel Manager allows the communication with the Booking Engine for your website (Vik Booking) as well as the synchronization of Hotel rooms availability, related services and rates.
Having the same rooms availability on your website and all the channels connected is probably the main reason why accommodations need a channel manager. This is important to avoid annoying cases of overbooking. Manual updates could lead to errors and the synchronization would never be made in real-time if this had to be managed by a human.
With Vik Channel Manager you can choose to upload rates to the channels, equal or different from the ones on your website. The administrator section of the channel manager lets you manage all rates with “Bulk Requests” for large ranges of dates or through manual updates of individual room rates for certain channels.
