Websites for Tour Operators
Monday, 28 February 2011 15:48
For tour operators offering tours, hotel based holidays, ski trips, camping, small and large groups, we have built a set of tools based around the most widely used CMS system in the world.
The component, called Travel Zen has been developed with flexibility and ease of use in mind. We also seperate the product information from the display so that it can be reused in many different ways.
The CMS provides us with:
- Static page content management
- News / Blogs
- Rich community functionality
- 1000's of additional plugins, modules and components.
- Multi Lingual functionality
- A solid platform for development (MVC)
The Travel Zen component then takes care of:
- Product information
- Product images
- Mapping (Google or other)
- Location information
- Add ons
- Version control of product
- Dates / Prices / Availability
- All sorts of pre built modules which cater for searching and promotion..
Then we add in customer specific 'plugins' which handle all bespoke code if required:
- Advanced facetted searching based on the Apache SOLR index system
- Advanced Keyword searching
- Product relationships (up sells / down sells / alternatives)
- Integration with your back end systems
- XML feeds
- Booking processes
- Special client specific functionality (product builders etc)
On top of all of this comes the template which allows us to:
- Lay any design over the functionality
- Customise the end user functionality by client
