The founder of the reservation system can provide flow to our country will contribute to Turkey’s tourism studies rapidly after the pandemic, SAN TSG Chairman Erol Türk made a statement to the Tourism Diary.
“As SAN Tourism Software Group, we support software solutions that add value to the travel industry in 72 countries. Although Sejour is our strongest brand in the tourism industry, with our Paximum brand established in 2013, we have created the business model of the incoming agency, which uses Sejour, on moving the hotel, tour and transfer product to the global audience.
Today, over 700 Sejour users operating in Turkey, one of the incoming agents in the system of all contracted hotels tour operators already web services, XML, can serve via Extranet or Excel. Paximum can also open our system to the nationalities it wants with its own price and reservation-cancellation conditions. Thus, the agency does not bother to make individual contracts with overseas operators, it can instantly reach hundreds of sales channels and quickly fill its empty capacity.He started his words by saying ”.
Mobile Application That Will Make a Difference in Tourism available in the market
SAN TSG Chairman Erol Türk said, “With Sejour Mobile and TourVisio Mobile, we developed our mobile application on Android and opened it to the service of our agents during the pandemic period. We will not charge any fees until at least the beginning of the year for this application, which makes it easier for our Incoming agents using Sejour software and tour operators using our Tourvisio software to track their work from mobile to instant (real time).
DUE TO THE PANDEMIC, WE LAUNCHED ONLINE C / IN APPLICATION
Türk said, “We are about to finish a very valuable study by Hotel2Sejour, which instantly integrates the reservations of hundreds of agencies into the hotels during the Stayhome process. Considering that the social distance still continues to be protected due to the pandemic, we have done a work that will give hotels and guests serious satisfaction.
With this work, if tour operators abroad integrate customer data into our incoming agencies, this information will reach the hotels instantly and completely, and online check-in will take place without entering the hotel. Thus, guests who come to the hotel reception, whether individually or as a group, will not accumulate in the lobby. They will not experience side-by-side and intensive hotel entry procedures. They will also be able to check in online on the way to the hotel even on the road with the incoming passenger mobile app.said.
We Will Support Tour Guides and Regional Trades
In the world, which has become a little more digital with each passing day, we have started to hear from global strategists that all sectors after pandemic will be digitized faster. As the technology-software company in the tourism industry, SAN TSG Chairman Erol Türk also gave the good news of his software, which connects real-time (Real Time) incoming agencies to guides-regional tradesmen and where they can see reports instantly.
CONTRACTS AND ACTIONS CAN BE MANAGED FROM MOBILE
He also stated that hotels and incoming agencies will no longer have to sign contracts and actions by coming face to face, and that they can manage these processes over mobile. Contract-Action activities, on the other hand, have been announced that they will be carried out over mobile from August.
WE WILL BE LIFE WATER FOR THE SECTOR WITH OUR PAXIMUM SOFTWARE
SAN TSG Chairman Erol Türk said, “In 2013, we started a new brand journey with Paximum, which means maximum pax. Our incoming agencies were trying to contact tour operators around the world who would send them tourist potential.
For the tour operators abroad, hotels and sightseeing in Turkey, not knowing what they would select as an incoming company, research was done for long. We brought both parties together with our Paximum software and gave our incoming agents the opportunity to sell their products instantly wherever the target market is.
In our Paximum product, which is the Travel Marketplace, nearly 80% of the product is provided from our incoming agencies using Sejour. I think it is much more valuable for the incoming agency to download the product rather than the product from Bed Bank. Because, in accordance with the quota agreements they have made in hotels, they can quickly sell and allot their rooms with the reservation-cancellation conditions they want and the prices they determine.
Thanks to our Paximum product, the biggest tour operators in important markets such as Russia, Germany and England can have their products available for sale immediately without contracting. Moreover, they avoid the risk of not being able to receive their payments, as Paximum is fully responsible for receiving payments and paying our incoming agencies in all their sales worldwide.
THEY CAN OPEN FOR SALE EVEN IN THE AMADEUS SYSTEM
With the contract we made with Amadeus as a result of a process that exceeds a year, our incoming agents immediately load their products to the Amadeus hotel system. In this way, they are able to solve the workflow that they may never enter or they will encounter with a serious cost and effort for more than 1 year and they will offer bank guarantees, thanks to us, quickly and without cost. In addition, we mediate the integrated work of our tour operators and incoming agencies that use our TourVisio agency software over the world.
YOU CAN SELL YOUR HOTELS IN THE WORLD GIANT CTRIP and AGODA
We made a very valuable agreement with Ctrip (Trip.com), China's largest travel platform, on May 7, within the scope of our pandemic process, and Paximum managed to become CTrip's supplier. At the same time, we started working with Agoda, another company of Booking.com, which stands out in the Far East. When our Incoming agents want to supply products to CTrip, the Chinese travel platform, and Agoda, it is sufficient to enter their products on Sejour. Thus, we initiate an effortless and valuable cooperation on behalf of Paximum and CTrip by delivering their products. " said.
Stating that SAN TSG mediated nearly 250 thousand pax sales in 2019 on the basis of annual reservations on the Paximum platform, the Turkish stated that the 2020 targets before the pandemic were at 450 thousand pax levels. Although new targets will be revised by the brand in the post-pandemic period, the rapid recovery of the Incoming agents using Sejour and more tourists coming to Turkey in the name of their mediation Sejour-Paximum software within the SAN Tourism Software Group seems to offer significant support.
