SiteMinder has announced the celebration of its 300th distribution channel partner in lowcostbeds.

The worldwide wholesaler, which forms part of the lowcosttravelgroup, is the latest distribution channel SiteMinder has brought on for its 20,000 hotel customers over the past twelve months – a year which has seen the company’s integration partnerships with some of the world’s top hotel booking sites grow by more than twenty percent.

“As we further expand our global footprint, we are delighted to be partnering with SiteMinder to be able to connect dynamically with its many thousands of hotel customers around the world," said lowcostbeds’ director of market management, Simone Large. "For hotels in the U.S., in particular, lowcostbeds is an important source of outbound travel from the U.K. – the U.S.’s leading source market outside of the Americas.1

“We have especially appreciated the dedication, support and technical talent shown to us by SiteMinder’s people from its offices across the globe – it is second to none and it has forged a beautiful working relationship, one that will prosper,” said Large.

An independent, global, Swiss-based bed bank founded in 2004, lowcostbeds is today available in more than 50 countries and 13 languages. Supported by its 10 offices around the world, lowcostbeds has grown to provide travel agents and travel booking websites with access to 250,000 unique hotels across 450 popular destinations, via a web portal or direct XML connection.

“Like many of our existing channel partners, lowcostbeds is driving global demand and we are pleased that, with SiteMinder, they can now tap into the global supply they need to match that demand," said Martin Harlow, global partnerships at SiteMinder. “lowcostbeds is a particularly exciting distribution channel for our hotel customers, as its recent adoption of dynamic rate pricing means a greater ability for hotels to meet the incredible speed at which today’s online bookings need to occur.”
 
SiteMinder’s Channel Manager is a leading online distribution platform for hotels, facilitating real-time reservations between more than 100 property management systems and some of the most sought after booking channels, including Agoda.com, Booking.com, Ctrip, Expedia, GTA, Hotelbeds, HRS, LateRooms.com, Orbitz and TripConnect instant booking. Over the 12 months ending June 2015, SiteMinder’s Channel Manager led the company to facilitate more than $10.8 billion in revenue for hotels, derived from more than 27 million reservations.
