Global online distributor, SiteMinder, has today been named one of the preferred channel manager vendors for global hotel chain Hyatt Hotels & Resorts. SiteMinder is set to assist in effectively managing the online distribution of Hyatt’s distinct brand portfolio.
“The newly established relationship with a globally recognised hotel group, Hyatt, is a vote of confidence in SiteMinder’s ability to bolster the group’s online visibility. A milestone achievement, we now look forward to forging a stronger relationship with Hyatt – one that is mutually beneficial and drives business results,” said David Williams, Executive Director, Global Sales and Marketing, SiteMinder.
SiteMinder continues to expand globally. The company recently placed experienced hospitality personality David Chestler as Executive Vice-President, The Americas, to head the expansion in the Americas market – showing industry demand for reliable, robust and cost effective solutions is surging. “Online bookings have become such an essential part of any distribution strategy and the management of those channels – from OTA’s, to wholesaler channels to the GDS’s – needs to be done in a cost effective way to ultimately help hotels drive their bottom line,” said Mr Williams.
Hyatt believes that SiteMinder provides a smart and user-friendly tool for hotels to manage distribution channels. The system helps Hyatt hotels to manage the daily tasks in a more efficient manner. Additionally, SiteMinder’s network provides training and support to hotels on a global scale.
