Business Scenario

Our client was in need to develop a booking engine for company whose main business was online booking for hotels across the globe. The company is a world famous Online Travelling Company who provides complete Booking system with your favorite destination and few simple Easy steps. The main aim of the company was to provide seamless online booking experience that drives more customers to their online booking website.

The key requirements client emphasized on was to have rich and mobile responsive user interface compatible with different mobile devices. User friendly and fast navigation which makes the online booking task of their customers less complex. The booking engine should have very high security levels leaving no scope of data hacking. To expand their reach to customers across the globe social media integration was imperative. Provide facility to book their hotel accommodation from anywhere for any destination across the globe. Client chose Intellipro after evaluating several vendors.

Intellipro Approach

Intellipro team did several iterations of communication with the client to understand aspects like different types of accommodation, provides booking links to their various affiliates and channels, automated and online updations, complete management of booking like cancellations, postponement, group bookings etc. Once intellipro team had thorough understanding of the client’s requirement proper documentation was made and scope of work was signed off by the client.

Intellipro's Solution

Intellipro team on the basis of requirements gathered developed the booking engine that enabled bookings from anywhere in the world for any destination. IntelliPro developed an easy to use and rich user interface based hotel booking engine for its esteemed client that would allow any end user to quickly book a hotel across any location by integrating international online booking provider Expedia’s API. Integrating Expedia API was core part of the development.

Once the booking is initiated from the customer the system collects all the information from the particular website and simultaneously updates all the records of various online travel agents to maintain correct of inventory of rooms in an hotel. We developed channel management solution which allowed Hotel manager to manage individual Channel (OTA) separately as well as can update all simultaneously. Manager can update inventory - room rates, allocation, stop sell as well as other parameters. It can insert booking automatically and immediately from respected channel partner(OTA). We developed a dynamic hotel website which enabled Hotel Manager to create website from PMS content and map to their existing domain. They can even choose template for the website as well as edit content from ChannelManager PMS and it will immediately reflected in their dynamic website.

We also implemented Bootstrap CSS based UI which provides very rich user interface and fully responsive design that supports any device. Provision was made for email and sms notifications. Client side scripting was implemented using knockout js library for seamless and unfriendly navigation and real time results. The booking engine was integrated with social media websites like facebook, google + etc. which allows the user to do the booking using their existing social media account.


  • Feature rich user interface and seamless interaction attracted large number of end users to search and book hotel for their accommodation across any location which in turn increased the client’s revenue.
  • Integrating Expedia Affiliate Network API helped in fetching large number of hotels and related information across any location in globe thus giving end user more choices for booking.
  • Reduced implementation time thus making hotel engine live in less time for use.


As Expedia API was used several iterations were done to bring our right UI themes for best possible layout. This was because performance and data transfer between two parties had to real quick. We also had to take care of implementing everything from client side so that data would not bet modified by user as they can easily access client side components.
