SiteMinder today announced the completion of direct connectivity to the Hotelbeds system, offering its customers the option of another major international online booking channel. The connection means that SiteMinder customers can now manage room availability and pricing on the Hotelbeds system directly from the single SiteMinder web interface, or directly from their property management system if the system is integrated with SiteMinder.
“Being connected to SiteMinder has made it possible for Hotelbeds to have access to much more product in Oceania to offer to our worldwide audience. Not only does it bring more accommodation properties, but also more room types, and best available rates on free-sell basis to offer to our global customers. For Hotelbeds’ accommodation suppliers that means more exposure in the global markets through our extensive sales platform and channels of distribution.
Hotelbeds is a leading receptive and B2B provider of incoming travel services to over 1,200 travel organisers across more than 80 countries; hotel and accommodation suppliers working with Site Minder will benefit from the added value that Site Minder can bring by connecting with Hotelbeds.” – Ann-Marie Kerry, Senior Contract Manager – Hotelbeds Accommodation & Destination Services
“For SiteMinder, the partnership with Hotelbeds is strategically important in that it further increases the strong lead in distribution options that SiteMinder offers over its local competitors. The Hotelbeds connection puts our customers rooms not only on booking site channels, but also directly in front of thousands of travel organisers and agencies. SiteMinder continues to seek out the optimum distribution choices for our customers, and this embodies connectivity to a combination of the direct online booking channel, 3rd party online booking sites as well as traditional travel agencies and wholesalers. SiteMinder is currently working very closely with global wholesalers to allow dynamic room availability management to these channels through its centralised platform, so watch this space.” – Mike Ford, Managing Director, SiteMinder
