SiteMinder and Australian property management software provider HiRUM have partnered to offer a new, wholly integrated online distribution solution for hotels in the country. The partnership involves the integration of HiRUM's Front Desk PMS with SiteMinder's Channel Manager, which will automate online bookings for the companies' mutual hotel customers to reduce the time and costs involved in overbookings and manual management of reservations.

“Many of Australia's and, indeed, the world's hoteliers now have multifaceted roles, so efficiency is incredibly important to staying ahead and competitive,” Michael Kinloch, director of sales, Pacific at SiteMinder, said. “What is particularly great for hoteliers using HiRUM's Front Desk is the software's simplicity and suitability for all accommodation types. We are pleased to have a partner that continues to innovate and introduce new capabilities such as automated customer communication and owners' portal, for a complete end-to-end front desk solution."

HiRUM's Front Desk is installed in more than 1,200 accommodation properties, managing more than 120,000 rooms. The software is supported by the HiRUM team based in Australia.
