SiteMinder integrates with Agilysys for integrated distribution

SiteMinder's Channel Manager

SiteMinder has partnered with Agilysys and SiteMinder’s channel manager will connect with Agilysys’ next-generation cloud hospitality platform, rGuest, to integrate with Agilysys’ property-management systems and automate the flow of rates, availability and reservations for hotel customers.

SiteMinder’s channel manager allows hotels to continuously promote available rooms on all their booking channels and immediately update inventory across those channels when a booking is made. It eliminates manual entry and reduces the risk of overbookings with deep, two-way integrations between a hotel’s property management system and the online travel agencies, wholesalers, hotel websites and global distribution systems it sells through.

“This partnership reinforces our mission and strategy to partner with technology leaders that deliver significant value to hotels,” said David Chestler, executive vice president of global enterprise sales & business development at SiteMinder. “Both SiteMinder and Agilysys are committed to providing solutions that enable hotels to compete more effectively.”

Agilysys’ next-generation cloud hospitality platform, rGuest, provides the industry standard integration framework that connects SiteMinder’s Channel Manager with the Agilysys PMS solutions. rGuest provides a standards-based solution on an open architecture with public APIs to enable richly integrated applications delivered from Agilysys, its partners and customers. Agilysys’ property-management solutions include the Lodging Management System, Visual One PMS and the cloud-based rGuest Stay PMS.

The partnership between SiteMinder and Agilysys addresses a key finding in Phocuswright and h2C’s Independent Lodging Market Report, co-sponsored by SiteMinder, that half of U.S. independent hotels use a PMS, yet only 13 percent use an integrated channel-management solution. The partnership also addresses the need for hotels to adopt secure technology. SiteMinder’s Channel Manager and all of Agilysys’ PMSs comply with PCI DSS standards.
