WavySys REST API is here
WavySys launches its much requested API (Application Programming Interface) product. Our REST based API is the best solution to take your business to the next level.
Strong technological backbone, vast database and transparent pricing options – this is what you get with WavySys API.
In the paragraph below we explain in more details about why you need to integrate with our API as soon as possible.
1. Let's talk tech: REST rules
Why is WavySys different from the other APIs available on the market? Well, we are happy to explain. The more common API variant on the market is a xml based API. Xml APIs are commonly found as SOAP API (Simple Object Access Protocol). They follow a standard protocol and are a standardised systems that permit using different operating systems like Windows or Linux. SOAP based APIs are designed to create, recover, update and delete records like accounts, passwords, leads, and custom objects.
SOAP APIs are typically used in cases where there is a web based protocol like https or xml. They can easily be manipulated by developers and can get responses without caring too much about the language and platform at all.
Well, what is a REST API and why does it make a difference?
A REST API works as a channel of communication of different web services between computers and systems. These APIs are backed by an architectural system of REST (Representational state transfer). Web services, database systems and computer systems in a REST API architecture permit requesting to a robust access. They redefine representation of a web based service by deploying a predefined set of stateless protocols and standard operations. The results in a fast and steady access and smooth running while having a minimum of fixes.
The result is that with an REST API you can redeploy the manageable and updatable contents without causing effects on the system. It delivers a fast performance, is reliable and allows more progression.
Why should you choose REST API instead of SOAP API?
- REST APIs use multiple standards like URL, JSON, HTTP, and XML while SOAP APIs are largely based on HTTP and XML.
- While using fewer resources and bandwidth as compared to SOAP, REST API deploys multiple standards. SOAP uses XML for the creation of Payload which results in the larger file.
- Too many standards are defined by SOAP API and things are only implemented in a standard way, this often resulting in a miscommunication by the service and error. This can’t happen with an REST API as it does not define so many standards.

2. WavySys database: a treasure chest
What are agencies craving for? New offers, recently published boats and destinations never offered before.
WavySys follows a broader approach than any system you have seen in the market.
We have boats in our system that can be categorized by boat type like sailing yachts, catamaran etc. and also by charter type bareboat or skippered. There are more booking options available for the categorization as well there are new options going to be updated very soon.
There are also options like day charter, several day charters, week charter, hourly charter and special tours for example sunset tours. You can set variations when your weekly charter starts or also how long your hourly charter lasts. Take a look at our pricing system update:
Within the next updates we will add a possibility for charter companies to add more activity options. We currently experiment with a good partner for packaged offers, also coming in a bigger update this year.
Other than that, until now, there have been around 400 charter companies delivering their boat data to WavySys. Based on your requests, we have created a fair and transparent pricing. Moreover, we demonstrate our aim to create a long term relationship with our partners by offering a solid trial time with the yearly package (more info in the relevant paragraph below).
