The hotel industry’s leading cloud platform, SiteMinder, has been announced a Deloitte Technology Fast 50 Australia winner for the fifth consecutive year to further cement its position as one of the country’s top companies of technological innovation and continual rapid growth.
The announcement now places SiteMinder, as with all other winners, on the shortlist for the Asia Pacific Technology Fast 500 program.
SiteMinder’s co-founder and managing director, Mike Ford, says: “SiteMinder is very pleased to be once again be listed among the country’s most successful technology companies. The Deloitte Technology Fast 50 program highlights that innovation is certainly alive in the thriving technology hub of Sydney, and can truly compete against the very best the world’s innovators have to offer.
“2015 has indeed been another milestone year for us at SiteMinder. We now have more than 250 distribution channel partners and 19,000 hotel customers globally, with a significant percentage of those customers located in Europe and the Americas. Our internal expansion also continued this year with the acquisition of Globekey in Asia and further investments into our global offices in Dallas, London and Bangkok to meet the needs of local markets.”
Founded in 2006, SiteMinder offers groundbreaking, cloud-based products to help hotels increase their online revenue, streamline their business processes and lower their operational costs. Its open technology suite – which includes the world’s largest channel manager, a customisable booking engine, deep hotel system integration and global distribution system connection tools – powered a combined US$10.8 billion in revenue and more than 27 million reservations for hotels worldwide over the 12 months ending 30 June 2015.
