SiteMinder – a leading technology provider that allows hotels to automate distribution of rooms to online booking channels – has been named as one of Australia’s fastest-growing technology companies in the prestigious ‘Deloitte Technology Fast 50’ awards for 2011.
The newly released rankings from Deloitte (www.tech50.com.au) placed SiteMinder at number 22 of the 50 fastest growing technology companies in Australia based on revenue performance over the past three years.
In addition to a debut on the Australian Technology Fast 50 list, SiteMinder has also featured in Deloitte’s prestigious annual ‘Technology Fast 500 Asia Pacific’ rankings for the second year running.
SiteMinder Managing Director Mike Ford said the company’s high placement in the Deloitte Technology Fast 50 rankings reflected SiteMinder’s continued innovation in developing cutting edge, low-cost distribution solutions to help hotels increase revenue and improve business efficiencies.
“Hoteliers today want smarter, faster and more reliable distribution tools to link their inventory to high-revenue online markets and SiteMinder has been at the forefront of developing cloud-based, zero-transaction-fee technology that helps hotels boost revenue and efficiency,” Mr Ford said.
“A major success for us has been integrating online booking channels with hotel CRS, PMS and revenue management systems.
“From humble beginnings in Australia over five years ago, we have rapidly expanded and established operations internationally in markets such as the UK, Europe, New Zealand, South Africa, Asia and the US. More than 5000 properties in more than 80 countries now use SiteMinder’s distribution software and we have ambitious plans for growth in 2012 and beyond.”
