Hotelbeds Group, the leading bedbank worldwide and provider of business-to-business services to the global travel industry, has confirmed at ITB Berlin that 2017 was a very positive year for APItude, the GroupÕs latest hotel distribution API.
By the close of 2017 the number of daily requests processed by the APItude platform had grown by a factor of almost ten compared to the previous year, reaching a daily total of around 300 million.
Additionally, the Group has confirmed that it has improved response times to below 0.5 seconds as a result of a complete migration to the cloud, following the launch of APItude Cloud in late 2016.
ÒAn increase in the number of daily requests processed by APItude by a factor of almost ten can only be described as exponential growth. This can be attributed to two main factors.
Firstly, our deep understanding of the needs and demands of our clients Ð and in turn their clients, the traveler Ð drove us to continually innovate APItude since its launch in 2015 by offering faster response times; thanks to the launch and complete rollout of APItude Cloud those response times are now down to below 0.5 seconds. Secondly, we have increased the functionalitiesÊ ÐÊ such as booking modifications or more advanced filters to help clients find exactly what they need Ð thus allowing many of our most strategic clients to migrate over.ÓÊSam Turner, Wholesale Sales & Sourcing Director
