One of our top priorities at DHISCO is to always make sure our customers have access to the best technology.

That means not only keeping our systems up to date but also teaming up with innovators in the travel distribution space.

That’s why I’m excited to announce we have launched a new interface with Peakwork AG, a German company that offers next-generation, dynamic pricing solutions for packaging leisure travel.

With its unique technology called Player Hub, Peakwork connects leading international tour operators and agents to travel suppliers, enabling them to quickly bundle hotels, flights, car rentals and other amenities.

Peakwork’s solutions provide accurate, real-time, high-performance access to all the travel offers across its worldwide Player Hub network. The system is flexible and able to easily cope with large traffic demands and connections with metasearch partners.

In other words, it’s really cool. When I first saw their demonstration last year at ITB, I knew they’d be great to team up with.

We did. And now Peakwork has developed a new API to DHISCO’s seamless and push ARI connections with its Player Hub Technology and will now be able to extend this connectivity to its network of travel sales partners. Their initial launch is with DER Touristik Group, a Frankfurt, Germany-based travel group.

It’s the kind of strategic alliance we call a “win-win.”

As Peakwork CEO Jan Gerlach says, the partnership enables Peakwork to leverage its unique technology to give its clients access to real-time rate and availability information from DHISCO’s more than 500,000 hotel partners around the globe. It’s also key to Peakwork’s goal of expanding bookings across America and Europe.

And that, of course, is a big win for our hotel partners, who are now connected to this fast, accurate, leading-edge digital travel network and its important audience of travel buyers.

As I said, we first connected with Peakwork at ITB, which underscores the importance of networking. That’s why we’ll be attending ITB in Berlin again next week, to keep up those all-important connections with our partners, competitors and startups.

If you’re there, please stop by our booth (Hall 8.1 Stand # 135) and say hello. We’d love to chat about what we’re doing right, what we can do better and compare notes and ideas about the next best solutions for travel distribution technology.
