Genares Worldwide Reservation Implements Travelport XML Pro Technology Solution
Genares Worldwide Reservation Services, a provider of hotel reservations solutions, is the first hotel reservations company to implement the Travelport XML Pro Technology Solution to access Travelport’s GDS systems. Travelport XML Pro Technology interface links real time rates and availability from the Genares reservations system into Travelport’s three core GDS platforms, thereby eliminating the need for the hotel group to route via a switch company.
Travelport customers now have access to real time rates, availability, and rules for Genares’ 3000 hotel properties spread across the globe. Among the brands under the Genares central reservation system are: Jin Jiang in China; Lexington Collection, America’s Best Value Inns, Boutique Desires, Oxford Inns, Wynn, Encore and Treasure Island and Shilo Inns in the U.S.
Built over the Internet using Travelport XML Pro data exchange technology, the interface allows Genares to streamline transactions for its hotels using a cost-efficient and direct electronic path to the Worldspan and Galileo GDSs. Significantly it will position the hotel group to reduce its distribution costs by only supporting a single connection to both GDS platforms. Travelport-connected travel agents will also benefit from significant improvements in response times and a more efficient purchasing experience.
