Interfaces

Vendors of systems and devices that compliment the functionality of RMS are welcome to develop interfaces to the RMS data. A range of Advanced Programmer Interfaces (API) are provided for this purpose.

These API's are intended for the use of suitably qualified IT professionals.

A one off access fee is applied for use of the developers kit. The fee includes:

  • Access to all related documentation
  • User names and passwords for access to the test environment
  • Validation and testing
  • RMS Certification
  • Assistance as required from the RMS technical services team
  • Company logo and contact details on the RMS partners page
  • Updates of any changes to the API
  • Cost - $1,500 +GST (where applicable)

Public Service Interface

The Public Service Interface acts as a gateway to the RMS database. It can be used to extract a broad subset of data for a range of uses. The information can be extracted periodically as an automated routine or on demand. This interface also allows for posting charges back to the guest account.

There are many uses for the Public Service Interface which might include:

  • Emarketing solutions
  • Loyalty systems
  • Data correlation for group wide reporting
  • Statistical reporting
  • Much more

RMS Online API

Retain the look and feel of your existing website and optionally include additional online functionality by using the RMS Online API.

Intermediaries such as third-party websites, wholesalers and in-bound tourism operators can also create an open channel to receive automatically uploaded inventory from an RMS property and drop reservations directly into the system.

Specifications for our Advanced Programmer Interfaces (API) can be viewed in our Knowledge Base here.

RMS Online API

V1.8.20 (updated 09 Dec 2011) - 266 kb

Developers will also need to integrate with a payment gateway to facilitate online payments. The API contains calls to parse payment details to the guest account.

Examples of clients who have used the RMS online API to develop their own booking engine (IBE).

Please note that this is an open source developer's kit which is offered at no charge for the use of suitably qualified web developers.

There is enough information within the API to allow an experienced developer to integrate a property's website with the full range of functionality of the RMS Online booking system.

Where a web developer requires assistance from RMS the standard consultation charges will apply.
