MSI Solutions, SiteMinder partner to automate distribution

The partnership provides freedom for the modern hotelier and the opportunity to discover untapped revenue streams.

MSI Solutions’ CloudPM property-management system now integrates with SiteMinder’s distribution platform. The partnership provides a fully automated solution for mutual hotel customers to distribute their rooms online.

In a release, MSI Solutions President Mark Loyd said 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,” he said. “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 a 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.

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 multiproperty owners and management companies.
