DHISCO Launches Interface with Travel Packaging Innovator Peakwork
DALLAS – February 26, 2018 – DHISCO Inc., the world’s leading hospitality distribution company, today announced it has launched a new interface with Peakwork AG, which offers next-generation, dynamic pricing solutions for packaging leisure travel.
Based in Düsseldorf, Germany, Peakwork uses its Player Hub Technology to connect leading international tour operators and travel professionals with travel suppliers, enabling them to quickly and easily bundle hotels, flights, car rentals and other amenities.
Peakwork has developed a new API to DHISCO’s seamless and push ARI connections with its Player Hub Technology and will now be able to extend this connectivity to its network of travel sales partners. Their initial launch is with the demand partner DER Touristik Group, a Frankfurt, Germany-based travel group.
“We have a great working relationship with DHISCO,” said Rainer Perling, DER Touristik Group vice president, process management and dynamic production. “They value our partnership and will go the distance to collaborate and deliver effective solutions that meet our business requirements. The DHISCO team adds expertise and professionalism that make them easy to do business with.”
Peakwork CEO Jan Gerlach said the partnership enables Peakwork “to leverage our unique technology to give our clients access to real-time rate and availability information from DHISCO’s more than 500,000 hotel partners around the globe.”
Gerlach said the partnership is also key to the company’s goal of expanding bookings across America and Europe.
DHISCO CEO Toni Portmann said the alliance with Peakwork is “a true win-win” for both companies. “This connection gives their clients access to our vast supply network while connecting our hotel partners to this fast, accurate, leading-edge digital travel network and its important audience of travel buyers,” she said.
Portmann said the Peakwork partnership is an example of the type of strategic collaboration DHISCO continually pursues to ensure its partners are connected to the latest, most innovative platforms.
