evolution

evolution brings together e-commerce products and hotel reservation services to enable hotels to effectively manage and exploit the multi-channel world of e-distribution. evolution allows hotels to increase bookings, optimise revenue and keep complete control over their online profile. evolution’s team of technology experts developed evolution Demand Manager which enables customers to directly control a range of electronic distribution channels, including the GDS, from one simple-to-use interface. evolution is born out of Great Hotels of the World (GHOTW), one of the world’s largest hotel representation companies. Having used other companies’ technologies for nearly ten years, GHOTW was ideally placed to see the strengths and weaknesses of all the systems in the marketplace. From this perspective, GHOTW decided to build their own GDS and ADS reservation platform from scratch. Their team of passionate, dedicated and creative technology experts has created evolution Demand Manager, bringing a fresh and innovative approach to today’s e-distribution landscape, while taking the concept of rate distribution to the next level.
