Has anyone tried the hostel channel management system called MyAllocator?

Quote:
Our web based hostel channel management product. This allows a hostel to update their bed/room prices and availability and to send it out to multiple booking engines.

We currently offer updates to Hostelsclub.com, Gomio.com, Hostelworld.com and Go2hostels.com. Hostelbookers.com have confirmed that they will come on board early 2010 and we are in discussions with a number of other booking engines.

My Allocator is great system. It makes managing allocations so much easier, you can send it updated bed prices and availability to multiple booking engines effortlessly. Don't really know how we managed without it and my frontline staff swear by it!

Re: MyAllocator - has anyone tried it?

I am using myallocator now about 1 year and i am very satisfied with it. I have a hotel in Zanzibar (http://www.sansibarurlaub.de) where the internet is very slow and i hardly have a chance to update multiple channels. Instead of 2 hours daily (what would not be possible) for updating availability i need only 5 minutes.
Myallocator is easy to use, has everything you need, good price and the support is perfect. When you have a problem you get within a few hours answer, even on saturday and sunday.
If i would open a new hotel, one of the first things i would do is to subscribe with myallocator.

Re: MyAllocator - has anyone tried it?

MyAllocator also likes to inBed.me as well. inBed.me is s social booking site for hostels, beds and couches. Our site not only allows travelers to book their beds, but also to see who will be staying at each hostel during their travel dates. Travelers can then connect with each other to share tips or plan activities. Here are some of benefits of listing:

-It is totally free to list your hostel http://book.inbed.me/welcome
-100% commission FREE bookings on all reservations made by travelers that you refer, http://book.inbed.me/online
-On all other bookings made on inBed.me, a commission of 10% is billed and payable only AFTER you get paid
-Publish your rates (either manually or automatically through our API) or submit offers based on travelers itineraries. http://book.inbed.me/rates
-Earn 5% commission on any booking that a referred traveler makes over the next 3 years with our referral program http://book.inbed.me/referral_program

Re: MyAllocator - has anyone tried it?

We've been using Rate Tiger for the last year and a half. Very good support. ratetiger.com

Compatible with:

Hostelworld
Hostelsclub
Hostelbookers
HostelTimes
Gomio.com
Expedia.com
Orbitz.com
STA Travel
Tourico Holidays

Their shopper isn't very helpful because it shows the cheapest price on the competitors sites. If you have private rooms, you won't get a good idea of their prices. I'd highly suggest it...but alas, we're moving to ASSD which will have that capability for us.

Re: MyAllocator - has anyone tried it?

Hello all

I have been using MyAllocator for nearly a year and have linked it with Loventis (PMS) which was free to me -

I can only say It is the perfect solution for us - NO MORE CHANGES TO AVAILABILITY ,PRICE, AND IT TRACKS MY LOVENTIS ROOM LAYOUT!!

I can only say that the service back for both systems is second to none!

I could not survive without them both!!!

Re: MyAllocator - has anyone tried it?

Hi Phill

To answer your question the use of Myallocator married to Loventis and Free booking button (Maxbooking) is in my opinion the perfect solution for Hostels,B & B s , Room rental of any description

roomallocator.co.uk uses the three companies and sets up the solution for very little money. They also offer business Revenue management into the price should you want it!
