The lucrative Quest Apartment Hotels reservations and distribution contract has been won by SiteMinder after a fiercely-contested competitive tender.
Quest will now exclusively use the SiteMinder internet booking engine, channel manager and GDS distribution platform across its 150 properties in Australia, New Zealand and Fiji.
It’s the biggest piece of accommodation distribution business to come up in Australia for many years and is a huge win for SiteMinder, based in Sydney.
“The ever-evolving distribution landscape and digitally-interconnected ecosystem of travellers, suppliers and accommodation providers are very real challenges that we face as a network,” said Quest CEO Zed Sanjana.
“So, it was important for us to embark on this process and we’re pleased to have selected SiteMinder as our distribution and connectivity partner.”
Mike Kinloch, director of sales for SiteMinder’s Pacific region, said he is “thrilled” to be working with Quest franchise network.
