How Zeevou Won the Best Channel Manager Award
The procedure for selecting a winner consisted of two stages. In the first stage, Zeevou was nominated for the award, and was selected for the shortlist by a panel of independent judges, alongside the following companies:
- BookingSync & Smily
- Rentals United
The second stage of the award consisted of a vote by the public, with the contestant that received the most votes being selected as a winner. Zeevou is trying to bring about The Direct Booking Revolution! for the benefit of the entire hospitality community. It is telling that the support that they received was so fantastic and helped them win the competition by a very healthy margin!
Announcing the winning entry, the judges commented:
This property management system is not just about channel distribution, but about handing back control to the property manager.
Property managers can connect all their unit types and units to 200+ channels, ranging from OTAs to property listing sites and corporate agents, demonstrating successful engagement with different channels and segmentation of bookings by channel.
The winners in this category allow all the various stakeholders to engage with each other directly and efficiently, at a cost much lower than hiring employees.
