Vendor Updates


2017 Spring
Addison, TX

It’s been another monumental past few months for SiteMinder, one of the global hotel industry’s leading cloud platforms, as it celebrated its 10-year milestone; officially opened its sixth office, in Galway, Ireland; and was revealed a Deloitte Technology Fast 50 Australia winner for the sixth consecutive year.

Late 2016 also saw the company’s co-founder and managing director, Mike Ford, announced as a finalist for the prestigious 2016 Australian EY Entrepreneur of the Year.

The achievements, SiteMinder said, are a reflection of its continually strong trajectory, even as the booking landscape becomes evermore complex for hotels such as Park Hyatt Sydney that said, “For hotels now, it’s very difficult to see the full picture of where we’re being sold and how we’re being sold. It used to be very straightforward. One of the things we like and have seen so much from SiteMinder over the years is its ability to shift and adapt to changing conditions in the industry – and to innovate and bring that innovation to us, the hoteliers.”

Other hotels, including Barceló Hotels & Resorts and TFE Hotels (Toga Far East), are set to also benefit from SiteMinder’s speed of innovation. The two major chains have signed up to partner with SiteMinder, adding a combined 43,000 hotel rooms to SiteMinder’s already expansive distribution network.

Generating more than 43.5 million reservations worth $16 billion in revenue each year, SiteMinder’s smart and simple technology now includes:
