To cost-effectively expand its distribution reach across the globe, Indra has added SiteMinder as a channel partner. Indra's integration with SiteMinder and its crsXchange -- which was completed in less than two weeks -- expands the company's channel reach from the world's leading online booking sites to the smallest online travel agencies.
Indra is a global technology company operating in more than 110 countries and the third largest IT company in Europe. Indra provides technology and services to airlines, hotels, online travel agencies and tour operators. Its integrated "Travel Management Suite for Hotels" offers unsurpassed functionality for any business area. "TMS for CRS" and "TMS for Connectivity" are two modules within Indra's "TMS for Hotels" suite. These reservation modules enable hotels to increase their visibility easily and affordably, and share rates and inventory in real-time with a multitude of third-party distributors via direct connections, and now with the addition of the SiteMinder Channel Manager. In addition, Indra can support both the “push” and “pull” connectivity options.
SiteMinder Channel Manager provides two-way XML connections to the world’s leading booking websites from one central cloud application, ensuring that properties of all sizes can maximize their online exposure, increase revenue and reduce the time and cost it takes to update rooms. The SiteMinder Channel Manager is trusted and used by thousands of properties in more than 105 countries.
