There is a growing demand for accommodation globally and that’s particularly obvious in most city hotels who are often fully booked. Managing the existing inventory and maximizing the profit is a key challenge of small hotel chains today since technology has had limited impact.
From the software stack perspective a hotel typically should use three types of software (PMS + Channel Manager + RMS) and we understood that for hotels that have the need to optimize their revenue it’s impossible without data driven software. We understood as well that there is a big gap in the hotel space since small hotel chains don’t have access to accessible Revenue Management Systems.

Climber tackle the needs of small hotel chains by providing an accessible solution that is easy to use, fast to integrate and automated, replacing the manual labor on daily analysis and reporting that before was costing the hotels a massive amount of time..
