What is an online integration? Online integrations are a technology that connects a client with their travel services provider. This technology permits different computer programming languages to be understood both by clients and suppliers. In most cases, this language is XML, which travels on the Internet at high speed. However, more advanced alternatives will be incorporated, such as the case of HotelX created from GraphQL.
An integration enables a client to make a query to their travel services provider about the availability of a hotel room for a certain day, making sure they answer instantly. The client can be an online travel agency, a reservation system or a traditional travel agency. The suppliers can range from companies that manage hotels to airlines, car rental or entertainment companies.
"Our clients want to work with us for three main reasons: Innovation, provided by our advanced technical team; networking, and loyalty since many have been with us for years and we have helped them grow ", concludes the CEO of the company.
TravelgateX already connects the largest network of buyers (+150) and sellers (+600) with a single integration. The average number of reservations is 1 every 8 seconds, which represents more than 3 billion reservations per year in travel services, hotels, transport and entertainment.
