XML Valadis MANAGER: ALWAYS SPEARHEADING THE WAY
At Valadis, our mission is to improve the technological competitive edge of travel businesses. In recent years, we have developed an innovative technological platform for travel distribution and sales that offers the most advanced features in product acquisition, management and sales.
One of our strengths is our continuous effort and investment in I+D+i, allowing us to be constantly in the forefront of technological leadership and innovation. This is reflected in our XML interface that enables our clients to buy, distribute, increase and sell their product portfolio more efficiently, increasing their business possibilities.
Can you really boast fast, efficient and problem-free XML integration with any online travel agency or wholesaler?
We offer you the best possibilities to have a better growth potential and establish new distribution channels. You can have the best selling XML interface on the market, ready to be integrated with your international wholesale customers, travel agencies (online or management groups) and tour operator agencies.
We have recently launched a new version based on Web Services (SOAP technology) that enables clients to undergo integration quickly and with few errors. In addition, Web Service provides access to static data (destinations, board types, categories, and hotel dossiers) for optimal implementation in clients' mapping processes. The booking engine has the same features as the web search booking: speed, user-friendliness and simplicity. Only three requests (search, detail and confirmation) are enough to have a confirmed booking. Moreover, the search request is very flexible and can be made following multiple criteria, providing searches per region, per city or per hotel list.
The hotel Web Service also offers a two-step, on-line cancellation service:
Do you need XML integration of the products from main suppliers on a worldwide basis in order to complete your portfolio? Do you have tools to manage such integration without depending on the IT department?
Valadis Manager allows you to increase and improve your current product portfolio. From one system, you will coordinate product purchase from suppliers independently. With our purchase XML integration tool, you can integrate the product from top international suppliers. Valadis Manager has currently 21 suppliers available through XML integration and is constantly adding new ones (both wholesalers and incoming, see box below), although we can develop for you new integration with the suppliers you need.
Supplier XML connections of Valadis Manager offer you advanced features in the application of unrestricted sales policies (mark-ups, prices), enabling management of the supplier-product mix with full flexibility and precision thanks to its powerful, real-time, integrated-supplier management tool.
• Each hotel may be associated to one or more suppliers, free of duplications.
• A single hotel offers availability and prices from all the suppliers that have been associated to it. The system may be configured to determine the results that will be shown to clients. The ruled applied by default is showing the best price for the same type of room and board.
• Searches for one destination among associated suppliers are done simultaneously which means that the number of suppliers does not slow the searching process. In fact, a maximum response time, per supplier, can be determined. This means that a greater number of suppliers does not imply a slower system, but a system with greater availability and better prices for clients.
• Product and price rules may be established per supplier, and per hotel.
• Static data mappings (destinations, categories, hotels, etc.) are done using simple management screens, with no intervention from the Technology department needed.
