SiteMinder Links Epitome PMS to Online Booking Sites Around the World
SiteMinder’s market-leading ability to provide complete, two-way integrations to the world’s leading Property Management Systems has continued with the online distribution company announcing the completion of the integration with SoftBrands’ Epitome system.
More than two dozen PMS and CRS systems now use SiteMinder’s plug-and-play ‘pmsXchange’ technology to expand exposure on the net.
The new integration with the Epitome means live availability will be automatically updated on the world’s major booking sites directly from the PMS via SiteMinder. Reservations from those sites will be automatically delivered by SiteMinder directly back into the Epitome system, eliminating the need to enter bookings manually and helping drive down the cost of acquisition. SiteMinder’s flat monthly rate – as opposed to a per-reservation delivery fee – helps properties streamline business efficiencies at an affordable cost.“Epitome is a major, global property management system and SiteMinder is proud its new automated pmsXchange software can help SoftBrands and its hotel clients expand their online room distribution, streamline processes, increase yield and boost operational efficiency,” said SiteMinder’s General Manager for Sales and Marketing, David Williams.
The Vice President and General Manager of APAC (Australia Pacific) Hospitality Solutions for SoftBrands, Chris Gribble, said: “SoftBrands’ Epitome Property Management System provides the ability to deploy one comprehensive PMS for any operation, from a single property to the largest chain, driving positive results. The interface with SiteMinder provides our customers with additional tools and connectivity to respond to increasingly demanding booking sources and optimises processes around relationships, especially the guest. A connected hotelier is able to focus on its greatest asset – people- who deliver superior guest service.”
