From hotel matching to multilingual hotel descriptions

Our globally-utilised products include MultiCodes, a hotel mapping service for touristic companies that enables the matching of 17 million booking codes from more than 400 suppliers to 386,000 GIATA codes (unique hotels) at the touch of a button. GIATA Multilingual Hotel Guide (MHG), meanwhile, provides hotel descriptions for 159,000 hotels worldwide in 15 languages, including images. Furthermore, the corresponding fact sheets can be retrieved in 40 languages. Our service package also includes high-quality translations of content for websites, information brochures and more for the tourism industry.
Processing of tour operator data and live distribution of travel offers
GIATA offers tour operators services such as hotel content standardisation and distribution to increase their conversion rate. This procedure involves the processing of the image and text data of almost all established tour operators and travel agencies, and the creation of turn-key applications for the web, smartphones and iPads (e.g. Internet Hotel Guide). Further available features include virtually-browsable travel catalogues, image clips with background music for the online presentation of a hotel, and GIATA Facts for the integration of filter functions on an OTA website. Moreover, with the aid of the GIATA Realtime catalogue, tour operators, hotel chains and incoming agents can create online travel offers single-handedly. Within minutes, the contents of these offers are distributed to over 20,000 travel agencies, CRSs, websites and TV channels.
