Integrated Online Hotels Reservation System

The Integrated Online Hotels Reservation System (iOHRS) for Himachal Pradesh Tourism Development Corporation (HPTDC) is a web enabled application software system which provides online availability status of accommodations and instant online reservation facility of HPTDC Hotels to the prospective Guests/ Tourists/ Visitors or general public. In addition HPTDC management can track the business of its hotels with the help of various analytic reports incorporated in this application.

Online reservation of accommodations and cancellations of already done reservations in hotels could be done using internet, instantly by the Guests themselves or through HPTDC marketing offices and authorized agents. The software system is integrated with online payment gateways of Yes-Bank, HDFC-Bank, ICICI-Bank, and CC-Avenue, and as well as online channel manager AxisRoom, Mobile-App, e-mail and SMS Gateways.

Integration with the AxisRoom channel manager enables the presence of all HPTDC Hotels at all online travel portals like ClearTrip, TravelGuru, Yatra, Goibibo, Via, MakeMyTrip and many more, by making complete inventory of HPTDC Hotels available to these portals in online and near real time mode. These travel portals have high visibility on the internet and this integration thus helps the HPTDC to increase its prospective customer base. General behavior/ trend of the Guests are to search for best stay during their visit using these popular travel portals over the internet. These portals have advantages for comparative analysis of tariff, accommodations, facilities and amenities etc. for best price to the guests.

Guests themselves can reserve and cancel the accommodation already reserved, online through the software system instantly and refund of money, as per rules is transferred back to the respective account. Accommodation availability status for next one year can be checked in advance, so esteemed Guests can plan their visit and stay comfortably as per their convenience without visiting or contacting any HPTDC hotels, marketing offices or authorized agents.
