DerbySoft provides hotel metasearch connectivity and caching for Marriott International

Marriott International is now working with DerbySoft for its metasearch online distribution connectivity and caching technology. DerbySoft is based in Dallas, Texas, and Shanghai, and provides technology services to eight of the 10 largest hotel companies in the world, as well as many of the world's largest online travel agencies and metasearch sites.

To date, the metasearch sites to which DerbySoft has connected Marriott are Priceline's Kayak; RoomKey; Expedia's Trivago, the market leader in Europe; and Qunar, a travel metasearch site whose majority stake is owned by Baidu, China's largest search engine.

As "one-stop shops" for travelers that seek to quickly compare different travel options, travel metasearch sites are specialized travel aggregators that provide online listings from hotel suppliers such as hotel companies, central reservations system (CRS) providers, and OTAs.
