Hogg Robinson Group (HRG), a leading corporate travel services company, has signed a global agreement with Travelport for use of its Universal API technology.

Launched last September, the Travelport Universal API offers travel agency customers the ability to aggregate content and travel related services from multiple sources through one single connection.

The solution, which was designed by Travelport to greatly reduce the time and money its customers were spending on IT, negates the need for HRG to manage and maintain multiple API connections to its new Super Platform architecture.

As part of the new agreement, HRG will gain access to additional content from low cost carriers and high speed rail providers as a complement to core GDS content.

Travelports API support team worked closely with the HRG team during both the planning and implementation stages of this initiative and were very pleased with how smoothly it has all gone, said Bill Brindle, Group Distribution and Technology Director at HRG. By coding to one single solution instead of multiple APIs, HRG has quickly gained easy access to extensive new content for its customers. We can continue to book this additional content in our normal workflow process so its a win win situation for both HRG and our customers.
