CHANNELpro Manual

CHANNELpro is an interface to several booking portals and central reservation systems. It enables private hotels and hotelchains to maintain online all inventory data such as rates and availabilities. Further all reservations processed through the CRS are saved and can be reviewed at any time.

CHANNELpro is available in German, English, French and Italian.

How is a hotel setup in CHANNELpro?

Our team will setup the hotel in CHANNELpro and provide the access data upon activation. From the moment of activation, the only way to maintain rates and availabilities will be through CHANNELpro
Your CRS access to REDX will then be deactivated.

Access to CHANNELpro
Upon receival of the activation mail, you can use the login and pass to enter the interface at www.channelpro.de . You will be automatically redirected to the availabilities page.

Menue and navigation

The menue contains 6 sections:
Availabilities, rates, reservations, language selection, contact and help.


Availabilities
The availability page is portioned into “Standard/Room inventory entry” on the left hand side and “fast entry” on the right hand side.

At first choose a month, which you wish to maintain and click on “update”.

Room inventory
Please use   (CLOSE) to close a complete day or to set a room invetory to „zero“.

For your help the system has a „mouse over“description.
