The collaboration between PilotFish and OpenTravel on the the XCS eiConsole for FastRez further enhances this offering with capabilities specific to OpenTravel's FastRez message formats.

The XCS eiConsole for FastRez offers the graphical XCS Data Mapper with integrated support for the FastRez Message Specification.

The Data Mapper provides in-line, searchable access to all of the FastRez documentation, validation rules, and code lists - populated dynamically from the information-rich message schema. Combined with the message templates and drag-and-drop field mapping, this tool promises to dramatically reduce a formerly time consuming and error-prone part of the standards implementation process.

Transformation-building capabilities are enhanced by the XCS eiConsole for FastRez Validation capability. The validation processor automatically evaluates business rules documented in the FastRez standard against an XML document. This automated validation capability will allow trading parnters to quickly and easily verify their compliance with each release of the FastRez standard. The enforcement of machine-readable business rules will also greatly assist in promoting compatibility between trading partners. PilotFish and OpenTravel are proud to offer the XCS eiConsole for FastRez to the hospitality industry. The combination of the PilotFish XCS eiConsole and the FastRez schema will increase speed to market, data quality, and ultimately, the profitability of implementers.
