Choosing a Hotel Mapping Service Provider can be a difficult task. It has been established through multiple years of a process that APIs and data feeds are the lifeblood of travel distribution. Rapid developments in travel technology have enabled businesses to expand their reach far beyond the initial foresight. Therefore, the various entities that are working in this sector must be aware of the advantages that technology provides to their overall campaigns and work towards incorporating these into their existing ecosystem.
Hotel Mapping service and Room Mapping service have emerged in the 21st century as one of the leading services in the field that has more or less become a staple over the years. Mapping in the industry ensures accurate and precise data flow between various nodes thus removing duplicate and erroneous listings on any given platform. With modern cloud-based systems being able to handle thousands of transactions simultaneously, the need for proper, updated, and unique listings on one’s platform is greater than ever.
When a TMC or an OTA works with multiple suppliers or provides data to multiple other sources, mapping that same data and updating it across all channels can become an extremely tedious process. Hotel and room mapping API leverage the power of AI and ML to automate the entire process so that inconsistencies within the system can be removed with a simple click.
However, there are various things that one needs to consider when choosing a hotel mapping service for their business. Since there is a distinct lack of global standards when it comes to content distribution and management, one must adopt a technology that can filter and consolidate all incoming data to get rid of inconsistencies and errors to present the accurate and updated listings possible to end-users. Since the technology is relatively new, there is a need for entities working in this space to understand the advantages that hotel mapping services can provide to them and the ways it can complement their business to generate greater profits.
One of the biggest questions that are plaguing companies in the industry at present is – Who is Hotel Mapping and Room Mapping for? To that, we say, everyone! If you are a supplier, OTA, Consolidator, DMC, Tour Operator or an accommodation provider – any entity remotely related selling accommodation, then hotel mapping service and room mapping service are quintessential to the overall development of the business. Not only does mapping cut down on losses through the removal of erroneous listings displayed on your platform, but it also ensures the viability and sustainability of your firm in the long run by building credibility for their brand through the introduction of newer technologies.
Another question that we frequently come across is – Are Hotel Mapping and Room Mapping both essential to all businesses in the industry? To that, we say, no! This is the sole reason why we, Vervotech, have decided to develop our Room Mapping and Hotel Mapping APIs as separate entities! The viability of each will always be dependent on your needs and the sector that you work in –e.g., for an online travel agency, it is extremely essential for them to map both hotels and rooms with the same level of vigilance lest they start incurring exponential losses from incorrect listings of each. It is not so much important for independent room providers where they might only have requirements for a room mapping API that essentially helps declutter all information related to the sales of their rooms.
Perhaps the most frequented as well as the most important question according to us is – Accuracy vs. Coverage? To that, we say, both! We feel this question is so important that we have an entire blog dedicated to the topic – you can read it in detail here. However, to sum it up for the people blazing through this blog, accuracy and coverage are two sides of the same coin where one essentially loses value without the other. It does not make much sense for one to ensure total accuracy over an extremely limited data pool the same way that it does not make sense for one to cover a wide area without ensuring accuracy. We tend to take this extremely seriously when it comes to the development of our product ‘Vervotech Mappings’ and through a dedicated and sustained effort by the team over the years, have been able to ensure an overall coverage of 98% with an accuracy of 99.999%, the best in the industry!
