Two months into celebrating its 10th year in business, the global hotel industry’s leading cloud platform, SiteMinder, is proving its growth is far from slowing with the announcement it is a Deloitte Technology Fast 50 Australia winner for the sixth consecutive year.
The annual Deloitte Technology Fast 50 Australia program ranks the top 50 locally-headquartered technology companies based on percentage revenue growth over the past three years. As all other winners’, SiteMinder’s listing automatically places the company, once again, on the Asia Pacific Technology Fast 500.
Mike Ford, co-founder and managing director of SiteMinder – and winner of an EY Entrepreneur of the Year™ Eastern Region award this year – says, “It is an honour to be recognised among some of Australia’s most renowned technology brands for yet another year. This year of 2016 is particularly memorable for SiteMinder, as we reflect on our journey since 2006, from being a two-person operation in Sydney that wanted to bring an idea to life, to having six global offices and rolling out smart and simple technology that would, ten years later, positively change the lives and businesses of more than 23,000 hoteliers around the world.
“I commend the Deloitte Technology Fast 50 program for continuing to highlight that innovation can originate from this corner of the globe and stand among the world’s best.”
SiteMinder today boasts a holistic suite of technology solutions that enable hotels to attract, reach and convert guests globally online. Its latest addition, Prophet, a real-time market intelligence solution that takes the guesswork out of pricing hotel rooms, was launched in June.
Over the year ending June 2016, SiteMinder’s cloud-based technology generated more than 43.5 million reservations worth in excess of US$16 billion in revenue. These figures are testament to SiteMinder’s continued success in global markets, most notably in EMEA where the company has since opened its second local office, in Ireland, to complement its regional headquarters in London.
The announcement of the Deloitte Technology Fast 50 Australia winners now rounds out a year that saw SiteMinder listed among the 20 greatest pioneering technology companies to come out of Australia and New Zealand.
