London, UK – ED for hotels (formerly eDream Hotels) today announces an integration partnership with the global hotel industry’s leading cloud platform, SiteMinder, to enable hotels to more seamlessly attract and book guests online. Under the new partnership, hotels using both the ED booking engine and SiteMinder’s distribution technology can manage their availability and rates in real-time between their hotel management system and their Brand.com website.
The integration makes it easy for hotels to manage their online sales from one place and to significantly reduce overbookings, thereby giving hoteliers time back in their day to focus on guests.
Among those hotels is Neiburgs Hotel in Riga, Latvia. Revenue manager Dzintars Priedītis says, “I am very happy to manage my ED booking engine from SiteMinder. As I need to change my room rates quite often, the integration has saved me a lot of time.”
The ED booking engine is a leading hotel website booking engine within the Baltics that offers unique functionalities such as flexible design, personal service, regional languages, book direct tools and regional online payment integrations.
“ED for hotels is pleased to announce its new cooperation with SiteMinder. We have many hotel customers in the Baltic states and Nordic countries who use the ED booking engine and, now, we are able to offer an even better product for them,” says one of ED for hotels’ founders and board members, Helina Viik.
“We are dedicated to working with local independent hotels to help maximise their online revenue and build their direct customer relationships. SiteMinder is a true leader in our industry and we look forward to working together to provide effective solutions for hotels.”
SiteMinder has more than 30,000 hotel customers globally, from small, independent hotel properties to the largest hotel brands and chains. Forty percent of the company’s hotel customers are based in Europe.
