WorldMate API 1K

 

Today WorldMate reached a new milestone- 1000 registered developers for the WorldMate Email Parsing API ! This means that there are now 1000 people developing great apps of their own based on WorldMate’s capability to read confirmation emails from over 1300 airlines, travel agencies, hoteliers, car rental agencies, etc. We are seeing an incredible array of usages— everything from itinerary apps to hotel check-in services to expense report building. In fact, several of the biggest companies in the travel space are WorldMate API licensees.

This is exciting for two reasons. First, it validates the superiority of WorldMate's email parsing technology as both travel industry leaders and startups alike have adopted it over all other solutions. Second, it gives us access to many more confirmation email types which improves our level of service to all end-users.

We’re thrilled to have these 1000 developers on board as we take off for an amazing 2015…

WorldMate's Email Parsing API Amasses Wide-Scale Adoption

Today we are announcing an overwhelming momentum in developer adoption of our Email Parsing API.  Since its launch in April 2012, more than 850 developers worldwide have signed up to use the API, including major travel agencies, GDSs and travel-related startups.

With the WorldMate Email Parsing API, developers can extract detailed travel data from users' confirmation emails spanning more than 1,300 airlines, travel agencies, car rental and railway companies, as well as popular services like OpenTable, Airbnb and Ticketmaster.  The API enables licensees to piece together rich customer profiles by gleaning key pieces of information from their confirmation emails, including:

  • Dates and locations of upcoming trips
  • Addresses and geocodes for booked hotels, restaurants and events
  • Prices and confirmation numbers for flights, hotel stays, car rentals and train rides
  • Loyalty club memberships
  • Preferred booking channels

Over time, the API licensees collect such information to ascertain preferred airlines, repeat trips, typical budgets and various other customer preferences.

Say Hello to WorldMate’s New Website

 

We're pleased to announce the launch of the brand new WorldMate website! This project is the culmination of a lot of hard work from our in-house product, design, and development teams over the past few months, in addition to the professionals over at Bright Bright Great design studio.

By creating this website, our goal was to make it faster, easier to navigate, and to better convey what WorldMate is all about. In other words, we wanted to help our clients and our users to get to know WorldMate better; who we are, what we do, and why we do it.

With this new design, we were focused on simplifying the user experience while focusing on images, interactivity, and eye-catching animations. In the end, the result is a beautiful website that better conveys the essence of WorldMate; that leverages the best technologies available; and that looks great across multiple devices (go ahead and check it out on your tablet or mobile device – you’ll be amazed!).

But we're not done yet, so we'll continue regularly updating our website with news about all the exciting things going on at WorldMate.

Be sure to visit our new website at: https://www.worldmate.com/", and send any feedback via feeback@worldmate.com. We'll look forward to hearing from you!

Download WorldMate from Google Play

Reserving a car for your upcoming trip is always needlessly complicated, and can present you with several big challenges. First, you’ll have to visit multiple rental websites in order to locate the best deal. Next, you’ll probably have to choose your vehicle from an endless list and possibilities. And finally, you’ll be able to book your reservation, while constantly worrying that it will actually be ready when you arrive. Does this all sound familiar?

The good news is that on Version 5.6 of WorldMate for Android, WorldMate has partnered with CarTrawler to bring you easier car rentals with better global inventory, a wider range of prices, and much more discounts.

This is another great reason to reserve your next rental car with WorldMate!
