SiteMinder has announced a partnership with Jumbo Tours Spain, one of Spain's top online travel agencies (OTAs).

The company was looking for a solution that would establish a seamless connection to global property management systems (PMS) and central reservation systems (CRS) and SiteMinder's room distribution exchange (RDX) platform was the perfect fit.
As one of the leading international providers of incoming travel services and international wholesalers, Jumbo Tours Group, headquartered in Majorca, Spain with 27 offices worldwide, offers its services and products to tour operators and travel agencies globally. With over 35 years of experience in the travel industry, Jumbo Tours yearly caters to over 2.7 million clients (forecast 2013) in 50 destinations. Jumbonline and Jumbobeds, its B2B brands, have grown rapidly in the main outbound market. The partnership enables Jumbo Tours to access dynamic room availability and rate supply directly from thousands of hotels that are clients of SiteMinder's room distribution exchange switch platform. The platform connects CRS and PMS systems directly to hundreds of booking channels. 
"Our integration with SiteMinder helps our hotel partners update rates and inventory in our sales channels, in real-time, enabling us to bring the best offers to our customers," said Javier Soriano, head of preferential partners at Jumbo Tours Group. "We expect an estimated growth by over 20 percent as a result of this connectivity."
"A key differentiator of SiteMinder's room distribution exchange platform is the sophistication of the technology," said David Williams, executive director of global sales and marketing for SiteMinder. "The two-way real-time connection through the platform's SiteConnect API interface delivers accurate automatic updates of rates and inventory, assisting OTAs to overcome the connectivity challenges that they face, while allowing hotels to receive OTA reservations directly into their own systems. With more than 11,000 hotel clients around the globe, the partnership also provides SiteMinder's clients with a more efficient product because of the services offered by multiple OTA partners."
