Inntopia 2-Way GDS Interface

RDP is pleased to announce a new two way interface to the Global Distribution System [GDS] via the Inntopia suite of products and services.  If already a customer of both RDP and Inntopia, this interface eases the process of gaining more reservations by:

  1. Automatic availability interface between RDP and Inntopia.
  2. Automatic loading of reservations booked by Inntopia into the RDP system.
  3. Automatic rate interface between RDP and Inntopia.

If you are not currently an Inntopia customer, please visit their website to learn more about their products and services.  Some of the ways they can help you book more reservations include:

  • Distribution of your inventory to online travel agents such as: Expedia, Travelocity, Orbitz, etc.
  • Interface with Central Reservations in these destinations.
  • Use of their website booking engine.
  • Distribution of your inventory to traditional travel agents.
  • Internet Marketing and Consulting Services.

Note:  This interface is not required if you use the RDP TravelClick/IHotelier 2-way GDS Interface).

Why Use the Inntopia Interface?

  1. Increase revenue by having true ‘last room availability’ open to the Inntopia distribution channels. Or manage an Inntopia room block within the RDP Software.
  2. Reduce manual data entry by having reservations loaded automatically into RDP via the Inntopia system.
  3. Manage GDS cut-offs from within RDP to close out busy dates or holiday periods on the GDS.

Implement Inntopia

  1. Sign a contract with Inntopia for their GDS services. Inntopia charges a set up fee, monthly fee, and a per reservation fee for their services.  Please contact Inntopia to learn more about pricing.
  2. Update to the latest version of RDPWin 2.x or 3.x.
  3. The interface uses RDPWin Monitor to communicate and does not have any special hardware requirements. However, the property must have high speed internet access, but the only machine that needs this access is the machine running the RDPWin Monitor.
  4. The only other requirement for all two-way interfaces is the property must not be using RDP-DOS or the IRM Classic for reservations.
  5. Purchase the Inntopia interface from RDP: $5,000 plus an additional $750/year in support.
  6. Contact your Inntopia Account Manager to begin the process of interfacing with RDP.
