e-GDS and HiJiffy collaborate in order to improve Direct Bookings
Hotels with an e-GDS Booking Engine
can now integrate HiJiffy
to improve customer communication and boost upselling.
HiJiffy includes a chatbot to optimize the service and has a system to check the room occupancy rate on the hotel’s website, Facebook, WhatsApp, Telegram, Line and WeChat.

- The chatbot will present all the available rooms
- The lowest price as the start point will be communicated
- Photos and a brief description of the room will be displayed
