Did you know that OTIS powers listings across a variety of Oregon tourism websites?
Having your website integrated with OTIS means that updates you make in OTIS will appear on your website and any other partner site utilizing the same content from OTIS. Conversely, if a partner updates content for listings that your website uses, you will benefit from those updates as well. Consider the following example:
Let’s say a tasting room in McMinnville moves to a new location. They update their information with the Oregon Wine Board (OWB) and, because OTIS is integrated with OWB’s database, the updates they made will be imported to the OTIS database that same evening. Now, the next time TravelOregon.com, WillametteValley.org and VisitMcMinnville.com refresh the data from OTIS, the updates from that tasting room will appear* on each of these websites. The reason the update appears on these websites specifically is because each of them is integrated with OTIS and has chosen to display wine-related content for McMinnville on their website.
* Important note: Listing updates to partner websites may vary, based on how often data is imported and what they are choosing to display on their website. For example, one website may choose to show tasting room hours and another may not.
OTIS data is stored with portability and flexibility in mind. That means, with the help of a developer, you can choose exactly what kinds of listings you’d like to use, what information you’d like to display on your website as well as how and where this information appears on your website.
