London, UK – Coinciding with FITUR’s 2014 International Tourism Fair in Madrid this week, SiteMinder has announced the signing of its newest technology partner to the Room Distribution Exchange (RDX) network.
In a clear sign that best-in-class online hotel distribution is a key differentiator in the highly-competitive property management system (PMS), central reservation system (CRS) and Internet booking engine (IBE) space, SiteMinder’s newest technology partner on its RDX platform, Idiso, marks an important milestone for SiteMinder, bringing its technology partnerships to over 55 partners in just 18 months.
Spanish CRS Idiso (formerly Tradyso) selected the SiteMinder RDX platform to add robust and reliable channel management to their leading hotel enterprise CRS.
“By plugging into the RDX platform we eliminate the high cost and complexity of building our own multi-channel online distribution system so that we can dedicate our resources and expertise to our core business,” says Javier Silvestre, CEO, Idiso.
Hotels are exploring ways to increase booking volumes via online channels and are looking for the most cost-effective and reliable way to capture, connect and compete for that business.
“The RDX platform has received rapid industry acceptance and endorsement. A key element in our offering is that our partners completely own every touch point with their hotel clients. It allows technology vendors and hotel chains to seamlessly connect their systems with the online world, as well as gain an out-of-the-box, ready to operate distribution platform,” says Erik Munoz, Executive Director – Strategic Sales and Global Partnerships, SiteMinder.
Already operating in thousands of hotels throughout Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean and Latin America, Idiso will continue its expansion into North America and Asia-Pacific regions. Idiso’s integration with the RDX platform will be available at the end of February.
