Group availability aggregator?

For those of you who are involved in DMO's (Destination Marketing Organizations) or regional B&B associations or similar... can you recommend an availability aggregator that serves a whole group and not just an individual property? 

In other words, if a visitor goes to a regional tourism website (ie, it could be your town's chamber of commerce or a state/provincial tourism site), the visitor can enter their travel dates and get a list of properties with rooms available.

I'm looking for one that doesn't require all the members to use a proprietary booking engine in order to participate. So it would just show that rooms are available and provide a link directly to that property's own website or booking engine or their choice.

Any suggestions would be welcome. Thanks!

I work for a large company that does many DMO sites.  For many of them, we use http://jackrabbitsystems.com/bookdirect-network/

To be honest, I am not sure how friendly it is to smaller properties (only because I have not seen that side of it).
