Genares Worldwide Reservation Services has become the first hotel reservations company to implement Travelport XML Pro Technology Solution to access Travelports GDS systems.

Travelport XML Pro Technology interface links real time rates and availability from the Genares reservations system into Travelports 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, Americas 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 direct electronic path to the Worldspan and Galileo GDSs. Significantly it will help 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.

With the implementation of Travelport XML Pro Technology Solution, we are able to achieve faster response times, faster time to market of new enhancements and reduced distribution costs, said Ursula Rhode, chief operating officer, Genares Worldwide Reservation Services. The Travelport XML solution allows Genares to take advantage of more flexible technology and enhanced functionality.

Niklas Andreen, group vice president hospitality and partner marketing, Travelport GDS, added, Genares is well known for its industry-leading technology. Several years ago, they were the first hotel customer to adopt Worldspans OTA based XML Content delivery product, and we are particularly pleased to partner with them and see them become the first hotel reservations company to now implement the Travelport XML Pro Technology Solution.
