Key Products
The Channel Manager

The Channel Manager’s innovative technology and functionality leads the way in online room inventory and rate management. Developed using a complete two-way real-time connection, it allows for easy integration between online travel agents (OTAs), wholesalers, GDSs and the hotels’ property management systems (PMS)/central reservation systems (CRS).

As soon as a reservation is made, either online or through a hotel’s front desk, The Channel Manager instantly reduces inventory across all booking sites, removing the need for hotel operators to manually update rates and availability.

Supporting more than 150 booking channels, The Channel Manager allows hotels of all sizes to integrate their PMSs and CRSs, for a low flat monthly fee.

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 SiteMinder’s RDX platform, 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.

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. By plugging into the RDX platform hotel chains can eliminate the high cost and complexity of having to build their own multichannel online distribution systems.

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’s RDX platform.
