myGIATA Drive – upload, distribute – live
Sync hotel pictures
Attracting hotel guests via online channels is becoming increasingly important. Why are some booking platforms so successful and others less so? One reason is that they include plenty of attractive hotel pictures. Hotel pictures have long been crucial for conversion and therefore also for improving the booking rate.
Did you know?
Direct bookings increase from between 8% and 26% when the hotel’s non-bookable content is consistent across all OTA channels. This is known as the “billboard effect”. 75% of the people that book direct on the hotel website saw the property on an OTA first.
Unsynchronised systems create too much work and leave you with little time for sales. An effective system is one that is fully synchronised. Are you constantly feeding countless online portals with the same hotel pictures? Do you work on a daily basis to optimise your rates, but often neglect your descriptions and images due to time constraints? Are you using a channel manager solution that needs to be updated manually? Can you afford to maintain your quotas and prices, but not your image content at the same time?

- You use a channel manager or revenue management platform for your hotel (or hotel chain)

We at GIATA have the world's largest database of hotels and we look forward to assisting you!
We serve various channels with our databases, including both high-street & online travel agencies and tour operators. Many of them have a direct relationship with hotels and have up until now been managing content manually. We help distribution channels that already work with hotels save time and effort on content acquisition.
At the same time, we also serve many third-party wholesalers, bed banks, large Internet search engines and travel portals that need information for the marketing of hotels, but do not have the capacity or ability to acquire the content themselves.
