Rakuten Travel offers 2-way XML integration for eRevMax hotel customers


eRevMax has completed integration with Rakuten Travel to offer XML connectivity to its growing base of hotel customers. Accommodation providers, selling inventories on Rakuten Travel, will now be able to make real-time ARI (Availability, Rates & Inventory) updates and receive bookings generated on the channel through eRevMax solutions directly into their property management system.

Following a two-way XML interface certification with eRevMax to leverage its RateTiger and Connect enterprise distribution services, Rakuten Travel becomes the first Japanese OTA to join the growing list of certified distributors, part of the eRevMax Channel Ecosystem. Rakuten Travel, currently connected with over 80,000 hotels worldwide including approximately 30,000 hotels in Japan, will be able to gain access to broader products and more availability, improve booking conversion and increase revenues as part of its growth plans across South East Asia, USA and Latin America. Founded in 2002, Rakuten Travel is one of Japan's largest online hotel reservation website with over 3.7 million room nights booked per month.

“Discerning Japanese travelers today look for competitive rates, exhaustive choices, room availability and last minute deals. With eRevMax embracing new technology and offering seamless connectivity for Rakuten Travel, we're confident of bringing unparalleled convenience to our Hotel Partners to access Rakuten Travel's customer base.
