Hotel Management Software Firm, Frontdesk Anywhere, Integrates With SiteMinder to Maximize Online Exposure and Increase Revenue for Hotels

August 21, 2014 Technology No Comments Email Email

Frontdesk Anywhere is pleased to announce its partnership with SiteMinder, one of the global hotel industry’s leading providers of online distribution technology.

The interface with SiteMinder’s Channel Manager provides the companies’ joint hotel customers with simplified online room inventory and rate management in order to maximize their online exposure and increase revenue while reducing the time and cost it takes to update rooms.

With the integration, the more than 14,000 hotel properties already connected to SiteMinder’s Channel Manager – the world’s largest channel manager by number of properties – will be able to send rate and inventory updates to over 140 online travel agencies (OTAs) worldwide while automatically having the bookings from those sites flow directly into their Frontdesk Anywhere property management system (PMS).

SiteMinder’s Channel Manager connects the PMS with the world’s leading online bookings sites, including Expedia, Booking.com, HRS, Hotelbeds, Orbitz and Agoda. Once connected, Frontdesk Anywhere communicates with SiteMinder’s Channel Manager to automatically send and receive rate and inventory updates in real-time.

David Chestler, Executive Vice President – Global Enterprise Sales & Business Development at SiteMinder, stated, “Independent hotels now have the ability to acquire world-class technology to help them outperform their competitors – where, previously, only very large hotels or chains could afford to invest in an integrated property management system, revenue management and global online distribution system. The partnership between Frontdesk Anywhere and SiteMinder supports best-in-class technology for independent hotels worldwide.”

“Frontdesk Anywhere is focused on providing easy-to-use, web-based hotel management software to independent hotels and management groups,” stated Frontdesk Anywhere co-founder Thomas Lyle.

“The interface with SiteMinder as an OTA distribution partner will allow hotels to manage their inventory from within the Frontdesk Anywhere hotel PMS, pushing their room availability to over 140 travel booking sites. All bookings received will be available in the hotel PMS with no manual intervention required. It’s the best of both worlds; visibility and ease of operations. We are delighted to be able to offer this solution to our growing customer base.”
