Speed-X: reduce traffic & improve response time in your connections

A sub second response time determines the success of a transaction.

It's nothing new that anyone in the travel industry has a constant battle to reduce unnecessary traffic and improve response times. The same requests with exact search conditions should not generate increased traffic, even when performed at different times. The response time of a search make all the difference when it comes to guaranteeing that booking. Protecting your system from massive search volumes gets more difficult in this metasearch engine world. You've been there, right?

To solve these problems and support our connected partners, TravelgateX offers its cache solution, Speed-X. 

Save up to 80% hits from ever reaching your system

By simply activating Speed-X, you can save up to 80% of total hits reaching your system. Traffic will consequently decrease as cached requests won't cause additional activity beyond. What's more, our cache solution enables responses to be retrieved faster and content remains available even when your system is not. After all, all servers can fail from time to time, even for very short periods of time.

Speed-X is the solution for you if:

  • Your connection requires a very low time response. 
  • You want to reduce traffic and at the same time improve the quality of your connectivity. 
  • You need to keep your clients happy and coming for more!

Speed-X is available for both Buyers and sellers connected to our platform:

  • Sellers pain-points
    1. Strict systems that require low response time 
    2. You want - and need - to get there first! You have the best rates? Now you can provide your product in record time, faster than your competitors. 
    3. Save on system costs by dramaticall reducing traffic. 
  • Buyers requirements for a successful connection:
    1. Low response time
    2. Capacity to withstand heavy traffic (like xml, B2B, metasearches, etc)
    3. Access the product faster in their systems

Speed-X does not require a minimum volume of traffic to be activated, however the more volume of traffic you have, the greater the effectiveness. In fact, Speed-X can be activated to single connections - it's not a one size fits all solution! To monitor your Speed-X performance, TravelgateX offers a free Grafana panel with relevant KPIs that will help you to continue improving your connection (s).
