The XML API Desktop solution enables clients to use transactions to
modify existing Galileo desktop products or create entirely new
desktop based travel applications.
XML API is not a crude 'screen scraping' product, or one that relies
on utilising scripts calling cryptic commands in the back end.
Instead it uses the power and flexibility of a universal XML
developer language to interact with the PNR. All XML transactions
available within Web Services are also available to the user of XML
API Desktop and uniquely ours is the only solution that allows
interaction with the Booking File through XML transactions prior to
End Transact. This provides the developer with a range of options
and a much greater degree of flexibility to create powerful
applications such as quality assurance and policy checks, after
sales reporting and statistics and fulfillment and bespoke desktop
process flows designed to reduce time and costs. XML API Desktop
provides the most extensive amount of host functionality of any of
the currently available Global Distribution System API product
offerings and supports both robotic and server applications.

Automating frequent or time consuming tasks to increase
