RMS Rest API
The RMS Rest API 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 the updating and creation of new data as well as the posting of charges.
Please complete this form prior to purchasing the API Developers Kit. There are many uses for the RMS Rest API which might include:
- E-marketing solutions
- Loyalty systems
- Data correlation for group-wide reporting
- Statistical reporting
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 create an open channel to automatically receive updated inventory from an RMS database and pass reservations back to RMS.
Specifications for our Application Programming Interface (API) can be viewed in our Knowledge Base here: RMS Online API
If developers wish to facilitate online payments they will need to integrate with a payment gateway. The API contains calls to pass payment details to the guest account.
Please note that this is an open-source developer's kit that 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 Engine.
Where a web developer requires assistance from RMS the standard consultation charges will apply.
