Through the Internet, you can integrate our products and services — all the functionality needed to sell travel — with your own applications and databases.

Complete Set of Core Services
With 150 web services available, customers have access to a wide-ranging set of travel services. As technology advances, you require easier and lower cost ways to build your own custom booking application for the Web. You also need easy access and the flexibility to integrate travel content with your own systems and databases. To gain a competitive edge, you need to be able to get your product to market fast. With Sabre APIs, you can do all of this. Plus, it makes it easy to build (or update) a comprehensive travel booking Web site that meets your unique business needs.
Sabre APIs are supported by technologies developed by the OpenTravel Alliance using generic technology standards backed by Sun, IBM and Microsoft. These standards enable different systems to “talk” to each other using one interface.
Supplementing the core web services are orchestrated services built to solve specific business needs. Designed to execute commonly performed business functions in a single service call, orchestrated services streamline application development and reduce a customer’s IT processing overhead. Quicker application development can be realized when using orchestrated services as one service call performs multiple services that a developer would typically have to implement individually. By using business services, you are increasing your competitive edge, speed to market, and technological innovation.
Event Notification Services (ENS)
Event Notification Services are an optional set of services offered as part of the Sabre APIs product offering. Event Notification Services allows customers to subscribe to certain events about specific travel information published through our publish/subscribe infrastructure over the internet. Sabre then pushes the information change as it occurs to the customer. Event Notification Services is based on an industry standard, Web Services Eventing, or WS-Eventing.
The model for ENS is: “Don’t worry about calling us; we’ll call you” as changes are detected to travel information for which you have a subscription. ENS will automatically send the subscribing customer a notification about the change to the subscription topic. ENS substantially reduces the need for mid-office robotic polling, and positively increases your customer’s experience
