Introducing seamless online distribution for hotels

Jovago.com, Africa’s hotel booking website that recently forayed into Bangladesh, has announced its partnership with SiteMinder, the global hotel industry’s leading cloud platform, to enable seamless online distribution for hotel clients. The agreement enlists Jovago.com among more than 300 channels integrated with SiteMinder’s Channel Manager and means mutual hotel clients can now seamlessly update their inventory and room rates to the booking portal.
‘We aim to bring top-notch technology to our hotel partners across all our markets in Africa and Asia. SiteMinder offers the right technology to grow our supply of real-time bookable inventory for our customers,’ said Eduard Posthumus Meyjes, global head of revenue management at Jovago.
As the leading cloud platform for hotels, SiteMinder allows hotels to attract, reach and convert guests across the globe.
Lisa Horne, general manager – South Africa at SiteMinder, said, ‘This collaboration with SiteMinder will provide Jovago more coverage and offer us a state of the art mechanism to operate through.’
Jovago launched an extranet application for its hotel clients earlier this year, allowing them to reach operational excellence with the online channel by giving hotel managers real-time access to, and control over, their room rates and inventory.
Jovago is an online hotel booking service with offices in Lagos (Nigeria), Nairobi (Kenya) and 10 other offices across the continent. Jovago is founded by Africa Internet Group and has Rocket Internet, MTN, Millicom, AXA, Orange and Goldman Sachs as its investors.
