Markham, ON - September 11, 2013 - NORTHWIND, provider of Maestro™ Enterprise Property Management announced it completed development of a 2-way booking interface to Expedia's family of reservation websites. The new Expedia interface reduces operators' overall online booking costs and provides multiple rate setting and availability controls.

Interface reduces booking costs with direct Expedia reservations
Expedia operates approximately 140 travel booking websites including Hotwire.com, CarRentals.com, Hotels.com, Classicvacations.com, and over 100 smaller regional "Affiliate Network" private-label travel websites. Expedia estimates 1 of every 20 hotel room nights in the US is booked through Expedia. In metro markets like New York and Las Vegas, the share is as high as 1 in 10.
"In the past, NORTHWIND's channel partners provided access to Expedia reservation booking, but there were additional fees with each channel," Dehan said. "Our 2-way Expedia interface gives Maestro PMS users a direct channel that is a more cost effective way for guests to book through Expedia." NORTHWIND developed easy-to-use input screens for the new interface that let operators upload rates and availability in multiple formats. Properties can now provide Expedia with sell rates, net rates, and flexible room allocations. Maestro's 2-way interface offers greater rate and inventory allocation control so hotels can manage availability and rates more precisely to maximize revenue from their Expedia bookings.
"The 2-way Expedia interface will reduce reservation costs and increase revenue for operators," Dehan said. "Direct Expedia bookings take advantage of all the valuable, unique capabilities Expedia channels offer. Maestro PMS users can call us to implement the interface today."
