The Byke Hotels & Resorts is a fast emerging brand in the Indian hospitality sector, with a growing portfolio of properties throughout India and ambitious plans to add many more in the next decade.
The Byke offers quality accommodation and excellent service at affordable prices. Key to the brand’s appeal is its exclusively vegetarian menu, which makes it particularly attractive to older orthodox Indians, pilgrims and guests from the Gujarati, Jain and Marwaris communities.
The Byke's mantra of cost-effectiveness, led by Chief Managing Director Anil Patodia, means staff are always looking for new ways to improve efficiency. And since earlier this year STAAH’s Instant Channel Manager and ConvertDirect Booking Engine have been helping the group do exactly that.
Sameer Khan, Revenue Manager at The Byke Hotels & Resorts, has used other distribution and booking applications and believes STAAH offers the best value for money.
"STAAH has a reputation for trustworthiness, near-zero downtime and excellent customer support. It provides everything we need – channel manager, booking engine and website CMS – in one complete package, making the job of managing our hotel much easier.
"Instant Channel Manager has simplified how we manage our inventory and rates (including rate parity) and since moving to STAAH online bookings and revenue have increased significantly.
"STAAH regularly releases new features and updates existing ones, taking our feedback on-board. This is important to us, as we feel part of the platform’s continuous improvement and reap the benefits as it becomes ever more effective and easy to use."
