Latest version of intuitive's iVectorOne API offers 30 channel manager integrations

New application from travel tech specialist developed to make distribution simpler, more flexible and responsive to market conditions 

A new version of travel tech specialist intuitive’s iVectorOne API has been released providing access to 30 channel manager platforms for the first time.

The single connection allows OTAs and tour operators to manage their distribution through their preferred channels without having to complete multiple integrations. 

The iVectorOne API is being used by 20 intuitive clients, including loveholidays and Thomas Cook, to access more than 120 accommodation providers including bedbanks, hotel chains, DMCs and channel managers.

Intuitive said its “modern, light-wesight” API supports agents to retail in “the way hoteliers want to and quickly activate channel managers in a matter of days, rather than months”. 

“The channel manager application, that sits behind iVectorOne, gives them the flexibility to source hotel product selectively and respond quickly to changing market conditions,” the company said.

Andy Keeley, commercial director of intuitive, said: “We created our channel manager application to help travel companies adapt to the shifting landscape of directly contracted product. 

“As hotels continue to take more dynamic control of their rates and inventory, Tour Operators and OTAs need a way to quickly react to ensure they have access to the best available and latest rates. 

“We can now provide access to a growing number of Channel Managers via our iVectorOne API so travel companies can connect to us once and flexibly switch on the partners they need access to.

“This is the next step of our vision to simplify, demystify and accelerate the way companies connect to the varied and wide-ranging hotel supply options”
