Why automated hotel sourcing is the key to beating your competitors

As the travel industry becomes increasingly competitive, finding ways to stay ahead of the curve is more important than ever. One key area where you can gain an advantage is in digital hotel sourcing.

If you haven’t automated your hotel sourcing, you know it’s a time-consuming and error-prone process involving in-person meetings, manual contracts, and markup management. However, with the advent of digital sourcing , you can now drastically reduce human error and your time-to-market to gain a competitive edge.

ANIXE's hotel dynamic sourcing offers just such a solution. With just one API integration, you can access a wide range of hotel suppliers, quickly add new hotel partners, and ensure that your customers always have access to the most up-to-date pricing and availability information.

Why you need an upgrade

Manually sourcing your longtail products is a time-consuming process. Meeting in person to sign contracts, just like you do with your core hotel partners, isn't feasible when you aim to enhance your offering with a broader range of options. This inefficiency not only hampers your ability to quickly bring new products and offers to the market, but it also puts you at a disadvantage compared to competitors who have embraced digital sourcing tools. By adopting these tools, you can streamline the procurement of longtail products, ensuring a more efficient and diverse product range while remaining competitive in the market.

Another challenge of manual hotel sourcing is the potential for errors. With so much data to manage, it's easy to miss a mistake or duplicate content. This can lead to confusing or conflicting information for customers, which can negatively impact your reputation and lead to lost sales. Even worse, it could lead to negative margins and financial loss.

In addition to the risk of errors, manual hotel sourcing can also limit your ability to access a wider range of suppliers. Without an automated system to quickly add new suppliers, you may miss out on exciting new opportunities or be unable to offer customers the best deals, best prices and most trendy destinations.

Overall, the challenges of manual hotel sourcing can be significant, affecting your time-to-market, ability to compete, and customer satisfaction. However, by adopting an automated sourcing tool like ANIXE's hotel dynamic sourcing platform, you can overcome these challenges and gain a competitive edge.
