SiteMinder’s Partnership’s Manager, Duncan Waterman, said the six booking sites would help SiteMinder’s global hotel customers reach new and bigger online audiences around the world.
“All these major OTAs can now be managed by hotels using SiteMinder, adding to the long list of sites we are already connected to,” Mr Waterman said. “Real time inventory can now be listed on all these sites and, in turn, bookings from these OTAs can be delivered directly back into hotels’ PMS and CRSs, removing the need for manual data entry and eliminating the risk of overbooking,” he said.
“These latest sites confirm we can offer hotels a breadth and depth of online booking networks that can grow their business. The new connections also underline SiteMinder’s rapid growth as a premier distribution platform.”
