The Opportunities API is an additional business service product that can help you boost your properties’ performance by facilitating opportunity implementation, while also earning Connectivity Partner Programme points. In fact, as we explain below, you can earn up to 456 points this year.
1. Additional business service adoption (max. 36 points a year + 15 point bonus: 51 points)
When you adopt an additional business service product (any of our non-mandatory APIs), you can earn up to three points per month, which means up to 36 points a year. In addition, when you adopt a new API in the programme, you’re awarded a one-time bonus of 15 points.
2. Implementations and attributed implementations
To earn additional points in the Property Performance pillar of the Connectivity Partner Programme, you need to make sure your properties are implementing opportunities presented to them via the Opportunities API. Points are awarded based on two metrics:
2.1. Implementations (max. 240 points a year)
Implementations for your property portfolio are measured in percentages as follows:
Your implementation rate (%) = Total no. of open eligible opportunities on last day of previous month divided by total no. implemented opportunities on last day of current month
Each month, you can earn a maximum of 20 points for your portfolio’s opportunity implementations, which means up to 240 points a year.
The second metric is attributed implementations, which takes into account the process of actioning an opportunity. As a Connectivity Partner, you can action them via the Partner Portal, earning you points in the programme.
2.2. Attributed implementations (max. 120 points a year)
However, when you adopt the Opportunities API, you no longer need to action opportunities in the Portal, as this is automatically done via the API – we call these actioned opportunities attributed implementations.
Your attributed implementation rate (%) = Percentage of implementations actioned via Opportunities API, where no. of implementations accounted for is at least 20.
Each month, you can earn a maximum of 10 points based on your attributed implementations, which means up to 120 points a year.
