SiteMinder today announced its new connection to Hotelclubs Flexnet. This connection, along with the existing Expedia and Travelocity connections, brings more global exposure into the SiteMinder fold and adds further opportunity for those SiteMinder customers that want to reach consumers across the world. HotelClub is another move by SiteMinder to provide a truly global distribution option for its customers. SiteMinder is committed to further enhancing its international online distribution options in the near future .
In another industry first, SiteMinder has been fully integrated with the market leading RMS property management software, allowing RMS users to have their inventory AUTOMATICALLY distributed to a host of local and international online accommodation websites. SiteMinder’s business is to provide properties with maximum online distribution with the minimum of effort, generating the maximum yield from online sources which is where the future of booking lies. RMS customers have their inventory automatically sent to all online websites whenever it is changed in the property management system, and whenever a booking is made on any third party site, that reservation is immediately dropped into the RMS property management system so it doesn’t have to be recaptured by the property.
SiteMinder announced today that it has further strengthened its ties with Expedia, the major international online accommodation site. SiteMinder has successfully integrated to Expedias Quick Connect (EQC) system allowing dual way integration and real time distribution of SiteMinder allotments to Expedia. This move allows SiteMinder supplier properties to enjoy 10% commissions for 28 day bookings made locally on Expedia’s website. The connection to Expedia is an important milestone in SiteMinder’s strategy to increase local and international business for our properties from online sources.
