The Phala Group Optimise Channel Management and Boost Revenue

Verified case study Hotel Tech Report has reached out to hoteliers at The Phala Group to verify this case study.
For guests wanting to experience a vacation like no other, The Phala Group is the place to go. Located on the Island of the Gods, The Phala Group promises a rich, cultural, and fun experience. Starting out with the desire to be a second home in the middle of Bali, The Phala Group flourished in the hands of people who wanted to provide the best experience for their guests. All three properties of The Phala Group uphold a strong Balinese feel and aim to embrace the island’s beautifully enchanting nature and culture.
Why it matters: During the covid pandemic The Phala Group switched to a different channel manager due to budget constraints and then suffered from unreliable Channel Management.
  • “When we were using the new system, I encountered many problems. The user interface wasn’t friendly, the system was difficult to navigate, and their connectivity was also unstable, so there were frequent errors and lagging,” said Shadi Wijaya, Corporate Director of Revenue The Phala Group. Due to the many issues faced with a different provider, The Phala Group decided to depend on SiteMinder’s assistance once more. Shadi admitted that he received a warm welcome from SiteMinder upon his return.

Top 3 Core Objectives: The Phala Group is now in a pilot project for direct connectivity between its property management system (PMS), GuestPro, and SiteMinder. According to Shadi, this collaboration facilitates the performance of his team and improves business effectiveness.
  • Connectivity: Effectively manage online reservations and guest bookings across the different OTA’s in a single platform.
