Problem n° 1

Suppliers hotels Id's list
problem number 1, Hotels Id's Matching
There is no standard in the travel industry.

Each supplier offers static data (hotel name, ID, address, etc) with their own specifications.

When it comes to knowing who is who, it is time-consuming and costly to find out.

More you add suppliers, each with thousands of different references, more it is challenging.

API requirements set-up

Set sources to match (no virtual limits).
Set your priorities regarding the suppliers you prefer, or leave it to us.

Problem n° 2

Hotel content discrepencies
problem number 2, Hotel content discrepencies
Having the most relevant content is key.

Standardizing Hotels data is equally important and complex as Id's mapping.

Each provider have it's own way of delivering hotels specifications and data as each one uses a particular way of querying their database.

Solution n° 2

Hotel most relevant content matcher
solution number 1, AIT Id's matcher
Common data for common sense.

An example: some suppliers will alter hotel cities name to include a larger area, supposedly to ease searches across their databases.

Hotels in all surrounding areas (30 miles radius !) will have the city set to Miami.

When a customer queries their databases, the returned result will consider all those cited cities as "Miami".

If you are looking for hotels in Miami beach only, you have to crawl across the entire result.

In a general manner, suppliers alter their listing according to their database capacities. Doing so, they create anomalies.

All in all this makes hotels searches imprecise across multiple suppliers, as all will have different criterias for cities.

Hotel content normalisation

When you are used to working with some suppliers, you like how they bring you good offers and quality data.

On the other hand, you might be missing important data and offers if you focus too much on some of them.

AIT hotel content matcher works hand in hand with you. Simply rank your suppliers and AIT hotel data matcher will prioritize your choices.

For instance: You prefer provider 1 (policies etc) over provider 2. AIT hotel data matcher will keep it this way and only grab provider 2 data if it s missing in provider 1.etc.

Hotel check it Correct it clean it Norm it
Name Keep as is Prov. priority irrelevant info google most

Hotel content standardization
AIT hotel content Standardization
More homogeneity for an optimal search and more readability for an optimal productivity.

Location: Location is set as the closest relevant POI. matched for all suppliers, avoiding multiple redundancies, greatly facilitates later location searches.

Cities: A second city field is added with the administrative city name (independant of the provider's one) and set in 2 languages (English and original language)

IATA: AIT hotel data matcher validates destination codes (IATA) used by suppliers and set it as the preferred one (as per your suppliers ranking) but a second IATA code field is created, corresponding to the closest IATA location. It can be a train station, an airport, a cruise terminal. IATA fields names are added.

Phone numbers: By default AIT hotel data matcher will set them in the international one, following each country owns nomenclature.
