Serving as a distribution platform connecting a hotel’s Property Management System (PMS), Central Reservation System (CRS) and/or Revenue Management System, the Demand Gateway provides robust interfaces to suit each of your distribution partner’s needs, streamlining their operations. Through a single interface from a central reservation or property management system to our platform, you gain immediate access to our Demand Partner Network that includes many leading travel distributors across the global marketplace.
