Multi Source Aggregation platform MSAP
Multi GDS content aggregation plays a vital role to cope with the challenges of GDS deregulation in order to provide travel sellers with full content integrated-inventory. The absence of one or more major carrier form a GDS could greatly impact a single GDS travel seller, travel sellers will need tools that provide them with multi GDS capability if they want to effectively serve their customers. Solores is the new platform that aggregates fragmented inventory for rates and availability from multiple disparate sources.
Content for a single booking engine can be perused in different GDS' depending on the airline and the fare type.
These sources are either GDS, airlines via direct connectivity, low-cost carriers or charters. The Solores platform connects to 5 major GDS: Amadeus, Apollo, Galileo, Sabre and Worldspan. Solores offers a unique multi GDS booking tool. Verify availability, price and create bookings in all GDS with one single common language. Queue /create booking instantly in the selected GDS.
SOLORES content via XML
The new Solores XML platform provides fully integrated content for Air. Through the Solores XML interface, customers will be able to query full air content provided via the GDS, consolidator net fare databases, low cost carriers and charter. Over 100 Low cost carriers are now available via the Solores XML interface. Content is obtained via direct XML interface connectivity or via web emulation depending on the carrier. Solores enables Airlines or low-cost carriers to connect directly to the Solores MSAP for real time availability via diverse transport protocols such as OTA compliant XML, XML RPC, SOAP or Standard EDIFACT messaging. Disparate multiple air content is then standardised into a common structured XML feed through the Solores MSAP. Availability data is efficiently cached to reduce transaction volume. The Solores XML interface is the ideal solution for multi content packaging.
