Since childhood, we have been using one or the other transport mediums for traveling between places be it Intracity, intercity, Intrastate, interstate, or the foreign land. Not to mention we also experienced various processes just to obtain a valid ticket to travel. It used to be on counters of the service providers or on the way i.e. during the journey or a pre-purchase. However, Over the past few years, the entire mechanism of how the purchase and sales of Travel tickets are being done has taken a completely different shape and route. With the advancement of the Internet and Digital devices, it has become a piece of cake to book tickets for any sort of travel requirement.
It is worth mentioning that, when it comes to human behaviour changes, there are change drivers e.g. First movers and Pioneers in the Industry who setup examples, and motivates other players in the industry to follow the trail. And in OTA space for B2C customers, Makemytrip, Yatra, Cleartrip were the early adopters of technology who deliver value to the masses with their intial launch of B2C Travel portals.
In the Airline space, Air Deccan took the initiative and launched the concept of the low-cost carrier. Whether the first movers survive or not, make profits or not, but they show the path. We can see similar lines for Online shopping where Snapdeal and Flipkart sowed the seeds. We can find many examples of such torch bearers in amlost every industry.
When it comes to Travel, content aggregators have made it possible to sell the travel content digitally using technology solutions and platforms to integrate the end supplier and establish a smooth supply chain e.g. REDBUS, TekTravel (TBO), Amadeus, Sabre, and Travelport (GDS Systems), etc.
Looking at how the overall Travel Industry is moving, Digital Transformation is most essential for all the Travel Business be it big or small including but not limited to Web and Mobile Booking Engine, Process Automation, and Digital marketing.
It has become a necessity sort of looking at the future. We noticed that in disruptions due to COVID19, any investments on digital transformation paid off well. In a situation when the entire physical workforce was absent, those Travel Business who had setup Process Automation tools were better prepared to fight the epidemic.

We understand the demand and complexity of Travel Business
Coming to the understanding and our take on this subject, As part of the process of Developing Portal, the first and most important is the identification of the source of Travel Content i.e. inventory and availability of the flight’s hotels, cars, bus, rail, packages, etc. The content sources can be GDS (CRS), Airlines, Consolidators, Aggregators, LCC Carriers, etc. at HashStudioz, we integrate multiple APIs to the application, Amadeus GDS API, Sabre GDS API, Galileo GDS API, Travelport UAPI, Abacus API, Worldspan API, Galileo GWS API, Mystifly, TekTravel API, Travelfusion, IATI API for Flights API Integration.
Similar lines for hotel content XMLs including GTA, agoda.com, Travco, Hotelbeds, TBO Hotels, Expedia, HotelsPro, roomsXML (Stuba), DOTW, YR Bookings, and many more. For all services, it is critical to identify a source where the content will come from. For example package content might be self-generated but for the agency, we have to provide a tool to upload and manage the content, which helps in generating leads.
