Availpro and Mingus, a leading provider of marketing solutions and PMS software for the hospitality industry in Canada are pleased to announce today their integration to better serve the Canadian market and help hotels to streamline their booking process.
A two way connectivity – time and cost saving
The partnership with Mingus / Hotello covers a 2 way XML integration which allows the PMS to directly send rates and availabilities from Availpro Smart Channel Manager to all distribution channels, to Availpro Booking Engines or third-‐party booking engines, as well as to GDS systems. The 2 ways interface then allows the reservations to be instantly integrated into the PMS system, thus saving time and errors.
Rafik Berzi, President at Mingus, said “We are working very closely to provide hoteliers with a simple way for them to accelerate their on-‐line sales with no risk of overbookings ”.
Bringing innovation to properties

Thanks to the Smart Channel Manager, the hotel availability and price information is distributed automatically to a wide range of channels with no risk of overbooking.
Once a booking is made, the PMS is instantly updated.
