SiteMinder, the hotel distribution technology company, has expanded the number of language options for its solutions.
Announced at ITB Berlin this week, the multi-language capability has now been made available within SiteMinder’s channel management platform and internet booking engine. Hotel users can now access the all functions of The Channel Manager and TheBookingButton solutions in Spanish, German, French, Italian, Portuguese, Thai and Bahasa Indonesian.
Additionally, users of hotel websites designed by SiteMinder’s Canvas tool can switch between all the above languages, plus Chinese and Russian. SiteMinder said that additional languages will “continually be made available” in future.
“From day one, SiteMinder’s technology has been specifically designed to remove the complexities that come with an always-changing digital landscape, so that hotels in all locations and of all sizes can compete online,” said Mike Ford, SiteMinder’s managing director.
“We are fortunate to have 20,000 hotel customers that already find success in managing their online bookings with us, and today is about further investing in those hoteliers so their day-to-day jobs can be that much easier with products that are available in their native language.”
Using SiteMinder’s technology, hotels generated more than 27 million reservations worth US$10.8 billion in the year ending June 2015.
