API is 'most modern and powerful connection currently available in the serviced accommodation sector'
SilverDoor launches new API
Serviced apartments firm SilverDoor has unveiled its new API to provide accommodation content to TMCs and RMCs alongside hotel listings.
This new API and allows for the most direct comparison between hotels and serviced accommodation, including comparisons between nightly rates, facilities and carbon emissions.
Once connected, clients will be able to view the content from more than 2600 global operators on their own platforms and leverage the feature to either enquire or instant book accommodation via the SilverDoor Booking API.
The SilverDoor Analytics API also fetches booking and spending data with real-time accuracy.
Hanish Vithal, chief information and technology officer of SilverDoor, said: "Our API is the most modern and powerful connection currently available in the serviced accommodation sector, so I’m super excited to launch this new product to the market.
"It has been built with years of experience understanding clients’ needs and, due to its customisable, robust and secure build, we can work with any client's own technology to make the offering bespoke to them.
"This ensures the API fits the client's workflow, making the process seamless and simple for both travel managers and end travellers.”
Pauline Houston, senior vice president business development of SilverDoor, said: “The message from our clients has been clear for a long time: if serviced accommodation wants to compete with hotels, they need to exist in the same spaces, offer live rates, and have seamless, instant booking technology.
"This API brings the SilverDoor portfolio squarely into those spaces and is instantly available to view and book alongside hotel rooms.
"This represents a huge step in making serviced accommodation more easily accessible to relocation and business travel programmes.”
This announcement comes less than two months after the public launch of the agency’s Carbon Calculator tool, allowing bookers to compare carbon emissions data for serviced accommodation.
Both developments, built entirely by SilverDoor’s in-house Technology team, aim to provide travel buyers with the most transparent information for informed comparison between accommodation options.
