For the activation of your SiteMinder connection, you will first need to:

  • Have your OTA channel add-on activated (if not, please contact the Support Team)
  • Contact your SiteMinder account manager or sales representative to request a connection to Clock PMS Suite
  • Enter your inventory, room and rate plan codes onto the SiteMinder web page as room and inventory codes have to coincide by going to www.siteminder.com – Clock PMS – Room & Rates.

As soon as SiteMinder is ready with the connection, they will contact both us and you with the respective connection details.

Now we can activate your SiteMinder connection. Then you can proceed with your own custom settings of the SiteMinder Channel Manager in the Clock PMS by going to Other – Settings – OTA Channel Settings.
