Business Challenge for the new corporate travel management project

Business travelers are increasingly adopting a leisure travel mindset when booking their corporate travel and want to be able to book via consumer-grade apps while on the move. The development of a new generation of the corporate travel management  version of Travelport Hotelzon app came as a need to fill the gap between corporate and leisure booking experience. The new generation architecture and design was decided in correlation with continuous delivery principles. It’s more intuitive, responsive and user-oriented, making it easier to search and book a hotel directly from their mobile.

Another challenge is to completely migrate the current generation functionalities to a new generation platform. Furthermore, the migration of both current generation and next generation servers to Amazon represented a challenge.

Approach/Impact

Dynamic hotel search was a major release, involving new technical Hotel booking software and technologies for reducing UI response time  to half and a better user experience. Static hotel contents are directly displayed and prices are dynamically updated based on suppliers’ responses.

Hotelzon API (hAPI) is an interface through which 3rd party service providers can utilize Hotelzon content and booking capabilities within their own system’s user interface. The latest version allows the sending of a PNR record locator during booking flow, offering the possibility for our clients to link the same reservation with their air and car reservations in Travelport GDS.
