GuestCentric Systems, finding that some prospective clients were unwilling to pay fixed monthly costs for its hotel-booking engine, implemented a new revenue-share pricing system.
For hotels with up to 100 rooms, GuestCentric Systems will make available its SaaS-based e-commerce management solution -- including hotel-booking engine, analytics, CRM and social-media-monitoring tools -- for a 6% revenue share, capped at $499 per month.
And, the company only charges the hotel client its booking fees when guests check out of the property.
For larger hotels or those with multiple locations, GuestCentric says it negotiates its fees on an individual basis.
GuestCentric, noting that no other fees are involved, claims this "best" in class pricing, enables smaller, independent properties to combine sophisticated e-commerce and social-media tools that previously might have been out of their grasp.
