Knowledge CenterThe Critical Alignment of Systems: The History of Hospitality API | By Jos Schaap, August 16, 2018

It's no secret providing a high-level guest experience requires the support of high-level technology. As we shift into a mobile-centric, hyper-personalized era lead by the digital demands of the modern consumer, the pressure for hotels to continuously introduce new technology and advance their existing offering(s) is staggering. While the adoption and timely implementation of new technology is undeniably paramount in a hotel's appeal to the modern consumer the success of this new technology relies largely on whether that technology is built on an open API. Think of it this way: imagine there are two great minds sitting in one room, with the knowledge and insight to solve a major problem for a company. The only catch? They speak different languages. Without a translator, they can't work together to solve the problem at hand. An open API acts as that translator, ensuring all systems (with their various purposes) can communicate openly to ensure a seamless operational model.
