Customer about the product

The Channel Manager by HotelFriend is very easy to use. Allows us to save time on updating prices and availability. You can control all channels and don’t worry about overbookings. Initial setup was a bit confusing but the customer support team helped to solve all the issues. I would not hesitate to recommend it any time.

HotelFriend F.A.Q.

HotelFriend F.A.Q.

What is a two-way synchronization?
The two-way (2XML) synchronization is a type of connection between Channel Manager and OTAs that guarantees that all room details are relevant. Thanks to it, a room will become unavailable on all the connected platforms, if it is already booked through one platform. And if a reservation is canceled, this room will automatically become available for sale again.
How do I synchronize my OTA systems with HotelFriend?
If your tariff plan includes the Channel Manager module, contact your account manager or write to Support. HotelFriend staff will help you synchronize and, prior to it, check if your account is prepared for the synchronization process.
Can I use the same tariff plan for several channels?
Yes, you can. When editing the Room Rate in the Source field, pull up the sources where you need to place this tariff plan. In case you need to display the tariff plan on any OTA system, you should select Channel Manager.
Does HotelFriend integrate with other systems?
Yes, there are a number of systems with which HotelFriend supports integration. Also, HotelFriend staff helps to integrate and configure everything correctly. You just need to provide the necessary information. You may request integration here.
How do I set up Restriction Plans and import them to the Channel Manager?
You can create Restriction Plans for each individual OTA. For that, you need to click the “Set Restrictions” button in the Channel Manager module. In the new window, you will see Restriction Plans for each OTA. If necessary, you can delete any Restriction Plan by clicking the “-” button. Then, if everything is correct, click the “Connect” button to connect the OTA Restriction plan to the Channel Manager.
How do I proceed to sell rooms on Booking.com, Expedia, HRS, and other OTAs?
Getting the hotel set up on these platforms is easy and happens in a standard format. Here the Channel Manager helps a lot: many properties use it to maintain rates and availability on the OTAs. Here you will find basic steps on how to sell your rooms on any OTA with the HotelFriend Channel Manager.
Do you provide support?
Yes. If you have any questions or problems, you can always contact our support team via live chat or email at support@hotelfriend.com. Our employees will be happy to help you. Basic support is included in any package. Applications are processed within 24 hours on weekdays. To get weekend support, you can purchase a 24/7 support package.
Do you provide training?
Yes. To sign up for training, you need to follow the link and select the most convenient training time in the calendar.
How do I switch from my old system to HotelFriend?
You can export data from the current system and import it into the system, configure the necessary settings with the help of HotelFrind employees.
I am trying to add rooms, but the system notifies that the limit has been reached. What should I do?
This means that you have exceeded the limit of rooms indicated in the chosen product and tariff plan. Please contact Support, they will check the information and, upon your request, increase the limit of rooms.
Does HotelFriend provide limited system access based on employee position?
Yes, Hotelfriend provides the ability to create limited access for employees. For example, you like the Housekeeping module, but you do not want to provide full access to the system to your housekeepers. The accommodation administrator can create access for employees of the housekeeper positions. In this case, housekeepers will have access only to the housekeeping Maintenance module. Similarly, other departments can create limited access for employees.
