Depending on the App, there might be some setup work to be done additionally. While mostly Revenue Management and BI tools read data right away, channel managers demand setup.
Depending on the Channel Manager it is possible that rate plans will need to be set up and mapped to rate plans in apaleo. Here, you can already begin setting up your rate plans and map them to apaleo before they become publicly available. This way you can "activate" your new systems within minutes by making the new rates for apaleo available.
