SiteMinder announced today that it has added Agoda.com to its rapidly expanding list of major international booking sites. SiteMinder aims to drive more and more bookings for its customers from the international inbound market, and the addition of leading high quality booking sites like Agoda.com, serve to further this goal.
“In these challenging times, accommodation operators need to take their online strategy extremely seriously. SiteMinder offers a fantastic platform for operators of all sizes and online ability, to access the major local and international online booking sites from 1 single web page. We are excited about the connection and rollout of Agoda.com, and the bookings we anticipate it will drive to our customers, particularly from the South East Asian region. The current economic climate makes access to more quality distribution sites like Agoda.com particularly relevant for our customers.” – Mike Ford, Managing Director, SiteMinder
Wilfred Fan, Agoda.com’s VP of Business Development says, “The partnership with SiteMinder is certainly beneficial for all parties involved. It adds value to the existing hotel using SiteMinder to generate bookings from Asian countries that is not easily accessible without the local service and marketing reach that Agoda is known for. It also provides Agoda a significant avenue to create partnerships with new hotels. We’re expecting great returns from this collaboration“
