intuitive expands further in Asia with Tourmind's iVectorOne partnership

Partnership with international hotel wholesaler is a two-way API

Travel technology provider intuitive has unveiled its latest partnership with international hotel wholesaler based in China, Tourmind.

The collaboration provides Tourmind with a two-way, buyer-seller API connectivity with iVectorOne, which will foster growth prospects for both companies.

Through this strategic partnership, Tourmind will gain “simplified” access to the firm’s latest hotel API connectivity capabilities, enabling them to swiftly expand its global hotel portfolio and provide customers with a wider range of accommodation options.

Simultaneously, Tourmind enhances the hotel supplier network of iVectorOne by distributing more than 20,000 directly sourced properties in the Asia-Pacific region to iVectorOne's ever-expanding customer base.

Ken Shen, business development manager of Tourmind, said: "We are very excited at the prospect of improving both our supply and distribution capabilities via iVectorOne.

“This will enable us to reach a wider audience for our directly contracted hotels and chains, with a primary focus on the APAC market, while also diversifying our product line and boosting our competitiveness by tapping the thriving iVectorOne supplier network.”

Andy Keeley, commercial director of intuitive, said: “Tourmind serves as a great example of the rapid expansion of an exhaustive hotel portfolio, by being able to connect with numerous suppliers in a very short period of time via the iVectorOne API.

“This underscores the power and agility of our hotel connectivity capabilities, by significantly shortening their time-to-market and enabling them to offer customers a broader range of options.

“The dynamic, bi-directional collaboration also empowers us to expand the hotel offering and establish a strong foothold in the Asian travel space.”
