Use the BookingCenter Booking Engine API (Application Programming Interface) to query the Central Reservation Service using common HTML techniques such as FORM POST and GET commands in order to show customized ‘web services’ such as, a photo album of your property, a July 4th Package, a series of rooms that can each hold 4 guests, etc. The use of the ‘API’ requires an experienced programmer proficient in HTML design and coding techniques. Specifically, it is written to use the PHP modules that we support in our Central Reservation Service.
Any BookingCenter customer who signs our Non-Disclosure Agreement (the ‘Booking Engine NDA available here for download) and faxes it back to us at +1-718-228-5959 can receive a copy of the BookingCenter Booking Engine API . For those folks with the skill necessary to implement an API, the document alone is all that is needed to begin customizing the booking engine for your needs. However, the use of the API requires technical skills and therefore technical support is only given to customers paying at the rate of US$90/hour billable in half-hour allotments.
Once again, the BookingCenter Booking Engine API is a technical document that BookingCenter supports with outside programmers at a rate of US $90/hour. One does not require support to use it, only programming knowledge. Support for using the BookingCenter Booking Engine API is not included as part of the standard BookingCenter support packages.
