A common problem OTAs face is how their hotel room offering is displayed. Because of the lack of room name standardization, often
times the same room can be displayed to the customer multiple times with varying descriptions. This lowers the quality of the user
experience and can lead to loss of bookings and retention issues.
Mapping.Works - Rooms changes this reality. It enables unification and standardization of room/rate offers, meaning one listing for each room type, without repetition. Each offer for that room is compared and unified with a standardized name, images, and room and rate descriptions. These changes enable new filtering options and hyper personalization for your end-users, leading to substantially higher conversions.
OTAs can also take advantage of new pricing capabilities made possible using room and rate mapping. With the ability to accurately compare rooms and rates, OTAs gain visibility into market pricing and can create markups that are dynamic instead of fixed. This means that markups can change as market pricing changes to increase profitability.
