GRUPO TRANSHOTEL RELIES ON CDNETWORKS’ DYNAMIC WEB ACCELERATION TO SPEED ONLINE BOOKING PLATFORM AND CONSOLIDATE INTERNATIONAL GROWTH

Solution serves close to 50,000 travel agencies worldwide supporting 3.4 million daily enquiries

CDNetworks, the only multinational content delivery network with local expertise and infrastructure inside Mainland China and across six continents, is helping Spain-based Grupo Transhotel support global delivery and increased availability of its online booking system used daily by 50,000 travel businesses worldwide. The company’s growth and international expansion, especially in Asia, as well as its need to maintain consistent quality of service for customers were drivers in selecting the CDNetworks Dynamic Web Acceleration.

“The Asian market is becoming very important to us, and we needed to count on a company that could support us as we set up new strategies and plans to consolidate our international activities,” said Francisco Javier Diéguez, Architecture and Infrastructure Manager of Transhotel.

Following rapid business growth in Asia, Grupo Transhotel chose CDNetworks to replace its existing CDN provider, citing the ability to guarantee speed and availability of its online TOR booking platform for hotel rooms and travel services, which is integrated into thousands of websites worldwide.

The support and flexibility of the CDNetworks offering has ensured fast and uninterrupted access to the Grupo Transhotel TOR System Advanced booking platform, supporting the average daily 3.4 million enquiries made by travel agencies across the world.

“We just could not allow our service to be hampered by speed or latency problems; we wanted to maintain our high levels of service and ensure that we didn’t put our business and that of our clients at risk,” adds Diéguez.

With 94% of Grupo Transhotel’s business being carried out via the TOR System Advanced booking platform, CDNetworks’ knowledge of powering global e-commerce sites as well as its global Points of Presence (PoPs) in target markets strongly contributed to the decision to change CDN providers.

“We chose CDNetworks because of its reputation of being able to get into distant and developing markets. Given its expertise of the Asian market and in particular China, the decision to work with them was an easy one,” concludes Diéguez.
