CHICAGO (March 13, 2018) - HTNG continues to seek contributions to the industry's API Registry with a renovated beta phase launching at HT-NEXT in San Diego, held from March 12-14.
HTNG's API Registry is an active repository for companies, products and APIs in the hospitality industry. Companies can find prospective business and technical partners, search through hundreds of listings, quickly identify best matches and discover the right individual to contact.
Over 175 companies, products and APIs are already registered. HTNG's API Registry Workgroup will collect more information from attendees on-site at HT-NEXT. Members and nonmembers of HTNG are encouraged to participate in the API Registry to help grow a transparent collection of information for the industry.
The API Registry was designed by HTNG workgroup members and developed in partnership with ALICE in the fall of 2017. The registry launched the previous alpha phase as a working prototype in December 2017 to populate initial listings and allow companies to test and provide feedback.
