Travelport Smartpoint provides point-and-click navigation through the cryptic environment, plus adds graphical user interfaces designed to speed up the booking process, reduce training, and improve productivity and customer service.

Smartpoint was built using the XML API Desktop, which is part of Galileo Desktop. Smartpoint also has its own wrapper API that is used by plug-ins to perform various functions within Smartpoint. These plug-ins provide the graphical user interface capabilities within Smartpoint.  

Without Smartpoint plug-ins, the terminal responses from the host are pure text and are not interactive. With the Smartpoint plug-ins, the terminal responses are interactive and provide users with a wealth of information and guide users through the booking process.

Customize Smartpoint using the SDK

Travelport is now offering customers access to the Smartpoint API so that regional Travelport, agency, and third-party developers can build their own custom plug-ins for Smartpoint. These plug-ins are used to extend Smartpoint's capabilities by creating new business opportunities or enhancing an agency's workflow. For example, plug-ins could be developed to provide the following:

  • Fulfill regional or agency-specific business needs
  • Offer non-GDS, ancillary services
  • Integrate third-party applications with Smartpoint
  • Integrate back- and mid-office systems
