Supporting OTDS

Being convinced of the value of open standards and open source technology, a-five actively supports the distribution and use of the free data format. In particular, the multilingual OTDS boot camps developed from practice and the provided test platform Offer Inspector enable hotel providers and tour operators as the primary suppliers of OTDS data to achieve faster successes and to check and monitor their high data quality by own measurements.

But also for potential processors of OTDS, the Offer Inspector with the integrated OTDS engine, completely developed according to the standard, represents an excellent opportunity to considerably accelerate the progress of the development. Further offers such as the OTDS-Caster (conversion service) or the virtualisation of sales channels round off the OTDS-related portfolio of a-five.
