Accommodation bookings Australia-wide will become faster and easier thanks to a new connection between online hotel distributor, SiteMinder, and accommodation broker, The Hotel Network.
Using SiteMinder’s channel management technology and its hotel client base, the new link will provide The Hotel Network with more real-time inventory for its customers.
The Hotel Network offers an accommodation booking and management service to more than 4,500 properties throughout Australia. The service provides Travel Agents, large companies and State and Federal Government with the ability to book their negotiated rates at their choice of hotels.
Managing Director of The Hotel Network, Nick Brooke, said the connection with SiteMinder would lead to a more streamlined booking process for its clients. “SiteMinder’s online distribution platform will give us access to more real-time inventory so we can confirm more bookings instantly, which will benefit our clients and accommodation providers.”
SiteMinder Sales and Marketing General Manager Gary Fog said: “SiteMinder will give The Hotel Network instant access to availability and pricing of rooms at thousands of properties around Australia. This new link will increase efficiencies across the board and help our hotel customers tap into the lucrative Hotel Network market.”
