1. You improve your room inventory exposure

GDS by SiteMinder allows you to connect to more than 500,000 travel agents across the globe with real-time, two-way GDS connectivity.

The GDS by SiteMinder system integrates perfectly and effortlessly with property management systems and central reservation systems.

When a booking is made, all of your distribution channels are instantly updated — and so is your own internal property management system.

You no longer have to worry about the stress, frustration and risk of manual data entry.

4. You can connect with travellers from every corner of the globe

By connecting with the top global distribution systems, your brand will reach travellers who may not otherwise discover your hotel.

This is particularly true of business travellers, who use global distribution systems frequently to book accommodations for their professional travel.

This is one of the easiest ways to tap into new geographical markets.

5. Reporting tools make it easy for you to finalise decisions

GDS by SiteMinder specialises in comprehensive reports that provide you with information about revenue that is generated as well as transactions that are completed.

Receiving this powerful information and being able to digest it at-a-glance gives you the ability to make well-informed decisions in a matter of moments.

Ultimately, this enables you to streamline your overall business operations while simultaneously growing your customer base worldwide.
