The new functionality in Open Destinations’ Travel Studio reservation system helps both group and FIT tour operators build itineraries and proposals three to four times faster.
Travel technology specialists Open Destinations are using this year’s ITB Asia in Singapore and the World Travel Market in London, to launch a new Itinerary Builder specifically designed for group travel reservations.
This latest development for groups follows Open Destinations’ previous release of Itinerary Builder functionality for FIT and small group proposals, and uses the same intuitive Drag & Drop technology. The new Itinerary Builder arms tour operators’ sales teams with a powerful productivity-boosting tool that enables them to customise itineraries and send them directly to the customer from Travel Studio with ease.
The technology enables tour operator customers using the company’s Travel Studio software, to build custom itineraries by simply clicking and dragging various trip elements into a template. For example, start and end dates either side of flights, transfers, various excursions and accommodation. The Itinerary Builder for groups has been specifically designed to cope with the intricacies of group pricing, including free places and flexible passenger breaks.
Once a Drag & Drop itinerary has been created, the software’s Document Generator can be used to automatically create a highly formatted proposal from a range of defined templates, which can be saved in various formats (PDF, HTML, Word Doc) before being sent to the client.
“Our Group and FIT Itinerary Builders will boost efficiency and turnaround times for tour operators and DMCs” comments Kevin O’Sullivan, CEO Open Destinations. “Our Drag & Drop technology and intuitive in-browser itinerary functionality helps our customers build itineraries three to four times faster. The FIT and small groups Itinerary Builder was rolled out with great success, so we’re excited to launch similar functionality for group travel today.”
Open Destinations will be exhibiting at ITB Asia and World Travel Market once again this year. Attendees who wish to see the Itinerary Builder or any other reservation system functionality in action, will find their team at stand A14 in Singapore and TT630 in London.
