Bedbank HotelBeds has agreed to join its API system with travel technology provider Qtech Software in a bid to make systems simpler and faster.
The companies share 30 mutual clients and say that, by sharing their APIs, both companies will benefit from a faster booking experience.
HotelBeds’ system APItude uses the banner of ‘we love simple’ and aims to “fuse technological innovation with simplicity in order to adapt to new clients and consumers’ needs”.
OTRAMS, Qtech’s API, gives the firm’s online travel clients the choice of available rates using their own credentials and includes booking across hotels, tours and transfers.
Sam Turner, sales director at Hotelbeds said: “This new agreement with Qtech Software strengthens Hotelbeds’ relationship with a key technological partner of the travel trade segment. This means sharing synergies and strengthening our presence in South Asia, where Qtech has a strong presence. Moreover, the integration with OTRAMS will allow the bedbank to widen its base of clients and to make the booking process easier and faster for them”.
Paresh Parihar, managing director and chief executive at Qtech Software said: “We are proud to strengthen our partnership with Hotelbeds, which dates back to 2008. APItude will enable our mutual customers to benefit from faster results. Our mutual clients can expect fantastic content with multilingual information and rich images, coupled with standardised room class data.
“We can also look forward to integrating the transfers and tours feed through the new API. The integration with APItude has made our product offering stronger and faster, and is very close to our vision of making the travel reservation process accessible, simple, and quick”.
