Case Study

How Satellite Office helped SiteMinder to provide excellent customer care to support their team in Australia


SiteMinder are a global leading guest acquisition platform for hotels, providing the core technology that allows websites such as Agoda and to grow. SiteMinder has 35,000 hotels as customers in 160+ countries, 87 million reservations a year, equating to $38 billion worth of hotel, Airbnb or B&B stays.​

Our Solution.

The company faced several business issues, including high operational costs, the challenge of supporting worldwide time zones, and the need for additional staff during peak times. These issues threatened to undermine the company’s growth and profitability.

SiteMinder needed to support their rapid growth in a cost-effective way, and Satellite Office was able to provide a solution. Working in consultation with SiteMinder, Satellite Office helped to establish a team of IT Customer Care, Financial, and Data Administration support staff. To accommodate peak season demands, Satellite Office also facilitated the recruitment of a temporary team of 10 to 15 people. Taking a consultative approach, Satellite Office worked with SiteMinder to determine the optimal team structure. By hiring the management team first, they ensured that the team was well-supported and aligned with SiteMinder’s business goals. The Australian team implemented onsite training to ensure that the offshore team was able to provide excellent customer care. Satellite Office also supported SiteMinder’s global operations, including offices in the US, by providing a cost-effective solution for support staff. Finally, to ensure close collaboration, the Australian team regularly visited the Philippines office.
