SiteMinder helps hotels to attract, reach and convert guests across the globe with one of the industry’s leading cloud platforms. Its smart and simple technology is specifically designed to make it easy for hotels to stay ahead of changing traveler trends and to compete on a global stage.

Global Presence and Reach
In February 2015, SiteMinder announced it had secured Hyatt Key West Resort and Spa in Florida, to reach its 16,000th hotel customer milestone, and now reports less than a quarter later, that it has already surpassed another milestone of 18,000 hotel customers. The February announcement came less than a year after SiteMinder opened its headquarters for the Americas in Dallas to support the rapid, global adoption of its best-of-breed product suite.

The company today has presence in 160 countries on six continents. Combined with the strength of its connectivity, it is through SiteMinder’s more than 350 partnerships and its diverse product offering that all hotels can take hold of the immense opportunities that the Internet economy offers to them. SiteMinder’s award-winning solutions for independent hotels, hotel groups and other technology partners include:

The Channel Manager
The Channel Manager is a leading platform for online distribution with connections to more than 120 of the world’s top PMSs, CRSs and RMSs, and more than 250 of its leading booking sites which generated over $7 billion (generated in excess of) for SiteMinder’s customers globally in 2013-14.

The Channel Manager provides hotels with real-time updates of their rates and inventory, across all their channels, to maximize sales and eliminate overbookings. Through its dashboard, hoteliers have single-screen reporting on the booking trends across all their channels, to empower them with quicker decisions and a more effective online distribution strategy.

The BookingButton is a wholly branded booking engine for direct bookings via the Web, to provide hotels with higher conversions and occupancy rates.

TheBookingButton features multilingual capability to enhance a hotel’s international presence, while being mobile friendly and social compatible to reach guests wherever they are. Hoteliers can also take advantage of its upsell capability to increase their RevPAR.

GDS by SiteMinder
This solution is a single-point entry to the world’s major GDSs and more than 500,000 travel agents, to drive down a hotel’s costs and offer them unparalleled reach and exposure.

GDS by SiteMinder offers hotels the opportunity to tap into new geographical markets as well as target new market segments, especially business travelers.

By adopting these solutions, all hotels – irrespective of their size or location – benefit from knowing their rooms are booked, inventory is updated, profit margins are maximized and that they are tending to their guests, not to technology.

It is these solutions that have enabled hotels such as South Beach Group in Miami to lift its revenue by 17 percent and The Observatory in Australia to grow its direct bookings by 300 percent – all within one year.
