Software for Tour Operators
iTop is an inventory management and distribution platform – a solution that allows you to mix your own stock with third-party stock to sell in-house or distribute to trade partners. It was designed specifically to help tour operators and modern-day agents to manage their own flight, hotel, event and transfer contracts and to create traditional tour operator packages. Simply input your stock and your products will appear alongside your other partners. You can create packages too, combining your stock with the suppliers that best complement your offering.
Whether you’re a traditional tour operator or a modern-day agent, iTop allows you to create the perfect travel portfolio.
With iTop, managing multiple flight sectors, dates, pricing and availability is simple and efficient. First you create sequences of related sectors – this could be flights that you want to manage in bulk, or those you want to follow a common pattern such as departing daily or weekly. Then you assign these to specific sales channels, so both prices and availability can be tailored to suit distribution agreements with specific clients. Pricing and availability can then be controlled at sequence or sector level, providing you with the flexibility to make sweeping changes, or very targeted ones.
Whether you contract one hotel or thousands, iTop can be scaled to suit your business needs. Your hotel stock can be loaded with ease and enhanced with detailed descriptions and images. You can then choose how you want the stock to be displayed. It could be by board basis, room type combinations, specials offers; the options are endless. You can setup price mark-ups according to a number of criteria too. These can then be applied to all hotels, specific hotels or based on dates, geography and more.
iTop also enables you to sell recurring or non-stock bound products as add-ons to flights, hotels, cruise or as stand-alone additions. For example, you may want to sell attraction tickets to a theme park, or entry to a museum, neither of which are stock bound and can be used on any date. Alternatively, you may offer daily or weekly tours, training courses or special events that feature set durations and itineraries. iTop covers all eventualities. From golf outings, cookery courses and wine tasting, to language training and conferences, all of these products and more can be entered into iTop and then combined with live flight and hotel pricing and availability.
iTop can be used to manage your ancillary offering too; either via partners you work with or your own product. Take transfers, the most popular of all add-ons, as an example. If you're offering transfer options with local shuttle and taxi firms, you can use iTop to make them available through all of your sales channels. Just load all of your routes, transport options, pricing and availability and your transfers can be displayed as a standalone product or as an ancillary to other travel components. The same applies to any and all ancillary services you offer.
Our role extends to distribution partner too. Once you’ve created your offers in the iTop platform, you can sell your product to our extensive customer database. We also facilitate distribution to non-Traveltek customers through our API. This means third parties can search and book your products through one single and consistent interface. And with every function centrally controlled, you can rest assured that the latest availability and prices will always be displayed, avoiding conflicts and double bookings.Watch Our Videos
