MSI Solutions and SiteMinder Partner to Automate Distribution for CloudPM Hotel Users
MSI Solutions and SiteMinder today announce a partnership that sees MSI’s CloudPM™ property management system integrated with SiteMinder’s industry-leading distribution platform. The partnership, which comes days ahead of HITEC 2017 in Toronto, provides a fully-automated solution for mutual hotel customers to distribute their rooms online.
Mark Loyd, President at MSI Solutions, says the partnership provides freedom for the modern hotelier and the opportunity to discover untapped revenue streams.
“With the growing complexity of online bookings for hotels, it was important for us to find a partner that could simplify distribution for our customers,” says Mr Loyd.
“The ease-of-use provided by SiteMinder’s distribution platform made it a perfect fit and we are excited that CloudPM™ hotel users now have another tool in their kit to maximize revenue and profitability. The integration of our cloud-based technology gives hoteliers a competitive advantage, particularly in the independent space.”
As the leading cloud platform for online room inventory and rate management, SiteMinder allows hotels to offer availability across all their distribution channels and immediately update inventory when a booking is made. For hotel users of CloudPM™, the real-time, two-way integration of SiteMinder’s platform into the property management system removes manual entry, reduces the risk of overbookings and lowers the cost of guest acquisition.
Fig Cakar, Managing Director – the Americas at SiteMinder, says, “The past few decades have seen the front desk evolve from being a physical table to cloud-based software. SiteMinder’s partnership with MSI is recognition of that change and our belief that automation is not only effective, but accessible to all hoteliers who want nothing more than to get back to their top focus and that is taking care of guests, not technology.”
CloudPM™ forms part of the TrūCloud™ platform and is the latest addition to MSI’s suite of property management systems used by more than 5,800 hotels across North America. TrūCloud™ enables MSI’s suite of highly-capable yet easy-to-use cloud services such as CloudPM™ property management, the EMV-ready CloudPay™ card processing solution, and CloudEnterprise™ scalable, centralized reporting and management for multi-property owners and management companies.
