Tournet has launched a new service for Tour Operators, TravelXML.net with its first live installation for Washington-based tour operator Solar Tour’s site www.beachdestinations.com.Derived from Tournet’s robust web based tour management system, TravelXML.net is a transparent XML based booking engine that works in conjunction with an operator’s existing site. TravelXML.net is a flexible solution reading data loaded internally or from third party sources such as an existing tour management system, GDS or other supplier switch.
The flexibility extends to its distribution options. TravelXML.net can power an exiting web site without the need to rebuild the site from scratch. It sits in the background and packaging functions are embedded into exiting pages. The system also acts as an external data source for your online partnerships, marketing or affiliate programs while keeping the look of those sites through the use of dynamic style sheets.
The TravelXML.net system handles all customer correspondence and documentation online using its AUTO-DOC, Automated Documentation System. Tour Operators track productivity of online sales and the status of reservations using online E-FILING reports.
