PMS Interface Reduces Booking Costs for Independents

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. The 2-way interface is available for Maestro PMS client implementation today.    
Expedia operates approximately 140 travel booking websites including,,,, 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.
The 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.
