InnLink 2-Way GDS Interface

RDP is pleased to announce a new two-way interface to the Global Distribution System [GDS] via the InnLink suite of products and services. InnLink is now a part of Travlynx.  If already a customer of both RDP and InnLink, this interface eases the process of gaining more reservations by:

  1. Seamless availability interface between RDP and InnLink. Properties with a two-way availability interface increase their GDS reservations significantly.
  2. Automatic loading of reservations booked through InnLink into the RDP software.
  3. Rate interface between RDP and InnLink. Manage rates in RDP and they will be updated for all your distribution channels.

For a list of OTA's (on-line travel agents) and Portals, see:   http://innlink.com/p-gds-otas

If you are not currently an InnLink customer, please visit http://www.innlink.com/ to learn more about their products and services.  Some of the ways they can help you book more reservations include:

  • Distribution of inventory to online travel agents such as: Expedia, Travelocity, Orbitz, etc.
  • Distribution of inventory to traditional travel agents.
  • Use of their website booking engine with add-on selling and other key selling tools.
  • Account Management to increase effectiveness of selling online.

Why Use the InnLink Interface?

  1. Increase revenue by having true last-room availability open to the InnLink distribution channels, or manage an InnLink room block within the RDP Software.
  2. Reduce manual data entry by having reservations loaded automatically into RDP via the InnLink system.
  3. Manage GDS cut-offs from within RDP to close out busy dates or holiday periods on the GDS.

How to Implement InnLink

  1. Contact InnLink for a Reservation Service Agreement for their GDS services. InnLink has low upfront and transaction fees for their services. Please contact InnLink regarding pricing.
  2. Update to the latest version of RDPWin 2.x or 3.x
  3. The interface uses RDPWin Monitor to communicate and does not have any special hardware requirements. However, the property must have high speed internet access, but the only machine that needs this access is the machine running the RDPWin Monitor.
  4. Contact RDP to purchase the InnLink interface. The interface price is $4,000 plus a $600 increase in the yearly support contract.
