Canvas will be unveiled at the travel industry’s largest stage, WTM London, and will form the latest addition to SiteMinder’s award-winning suite of smart and simple technology for hoteliers who are looking to attract, reach and convert guests globally online. SiteMinder’s co-founder and managing director, Mike Ford, says, “For years, SiteMinder has provided a platform that successfully enables direct, commission-free bookings as well as the most powerful online distribution in the market. “The launch of Canvas is about further empowering the world’s independent hoteliers who want full ownership, control and amplification of their most profitable channel – their website. Canvas is about enhancing the independent hotelier’s ability to compete in today’s consumer-led Internet economy. And, for SiteMinder, it’s about delivering on our goal of breaking down barriers for the world’s hoteliers, through easy-to-use, affordable technology that challenges the ever-increasing complexities they face daily to market and sell their rooms online.” Get the full story at SiteMinder
