Key Products
The Channel Manager

Developed using true-pooled inventory and providing deep integrations between OTAs, wholesalers, GDSs and meta-search sites with leading hotel PMSs and CRSs, the SiteMinder Channel Manager helps more than 9,500 hotels worldwide to increase online exposure and exposure through booking sites such as Expedia, Travelocity and CTrip, improve business efficiencies and reduce the cost of acquisition.

The channel manager leads the industry when it comes to innovation and reliability. By allowing properties of all sizes to integrate their online booking sites with their PMS or CRS for a low flat monthly fee, hotels no longer have to manually capture booking details, allowing staff to focus on more revenue-generating activities.

The SiteMinder Channel Manager is now used by more properties globally than many other providers.

Room Distribution Exchange (RDX) for PMS/CRS Vendors
By building a single connection to the RDX, PMS and CRS, vendors are able to gain complete two-way access to thousands of booking channels as well as their own fully branded distribution platforms. This allows vendors to sell a completely branded and fully supportable distribution product to their clients, helping plug the distribution gap within their product suite and make their clients sticky through robust distribution.

RDX for Hotel Chains
Hotel chains with proprietary systems face ever-increasing complexity when it comes to connecting leading global and regional booking sites to their in-house systems. RDX eliminates this complexity by providing one simple connection that gives seamless two-way connectivity and management functionality that allows the chain to operate the system as
its own.

pmsXchange and SiteConnect
SiteMinder offers a number of plug-and-play connectivity APIs such as pmsXchange – allowing PMS and CRS vendors to gain the distribution power of SiteMinder – and SiteConnect for booking sites.
