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 the creation of turnkey solutions for websites, smartphones and tablets (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 content of these offers are distributed to over 20,000 travel agencies, CRS, websites and TV channels.
