We provide our software & data to the world free of charge, but our team is comprised of experts in hotel API architecture. Our powerful pricing algorithms were built by Wall Street options traders to help take your revenue management to the next level. Our backend integration is modeled after a high frequency trading platform and combines traditional variables (availability, lead time, & seasonality) with comprehensive data mining of your comp set. Your prices will already be reacting to your competitors’ future underpricing & overpricing months in advance.
Take a peek inside our community, & you’ll see hoteliers around the world trading price matrix variables or giving advice on room mapping structures to each other in real time. Being on the SWITCH.CM platform means access to a vibrant community who are constantly contributing to our open API’s of pricing algorithm research & revenue management.
Want to link rooms on your calendar directly from the PMS? That’s called direct mapping. Is it possible to display a single room as multiple options on different OTA’s? Introducing dynamic rooms. What about quickly setting your AirBNB rate at $5 below your Expedia rate in real time? That’s called linked rooms.
SWITCH.CM was developed in collaboration of several hostels aroudn the world, and it was created as a customized system to be used by these hostels. However after having it ready we saw that would be good to have more hotels and hostels using this same system, as they provide feedback to keep improving the tool. A new user has no additive costs to the company, so we provide the system for free to new users, under the freemium version.
Users that started using it for free will continue using it for free. It is 100% free forever!
Freemium and Premium include the same functions except for the ‘Revenue Management’ funcion (google API pricing matrix), which is a premium feature. Moreover, the freemium version offers free connection to six OTAs, whereas the premium allow the user to connection with unlimited channels through the subscription of Siteminder.
