Web Based Booking System
SiteMinder today announced connectivity of its channel management platform to Rakuten, Japan’s leading online booking site.
“We have just gone live with this connection, and already we have had very positive feedback from our customers regarding bookings coming through this channel. With the Rakuten partnership, SiteMinder continues to deliver on our commitment to our customers to put their rooms in front of consumers in every part of the world. The key benefit in listing with SiteMinder is not only the variety of sites and breadth of distribution we offer, but more importantly the relevance of the channels we offer in driving bookings.” – Mike Ford, Managing Director, SiteMinder
“Now that our system is fully compatible with SiteMinder, hotels will be able to change the rates and availability more conveniently than ever before. We are hoping this will streamline the workflow for all those properties wanting to distribute their room availability and pricing on Rakuten.” – Sayaka Iijima, Producer, Rakuten International Sales Dept.
Accommodation providers are now able to use SiteMinder’s single web page interface to instantaneously update booking sites based all over the world including Australia, New Zealand, The United States, Europe, South East Asia and Japan.
