Well, I suppose you are here because you are somehow involved in the tourist industry. Then you are in a right place. Welcome ! 😉
Effective Tours is a cloud based solution which aims to connect all the players on the tourist market in to one big community. As a hotelier, you can add your property with all rates and inventory, descriptions and photos. You can connect your distribution channels, e.g. Booking, Agoda, Flipkey, Airbnb, tourist-agents, etc… You can update each channel with a special rates, by varying the markups.
In another words, you can do the sales for your property from one place instead of several. You can avoid double-bookings. You can always be sure, that all your agents and online channels are up to date with the latest offers and rates. And the most important part, that all this basic functionality we are giving free of charge. We believe, that you always have to share something with the others. Channel Manager feature is not a big deal. Non of the agents, or online agencies charging money for that. I mean, Agoda or Booking are not charging us, so why should we charge others ?
Any participant of the ET, I mean hoteliers, taxi service, agents and operators , can invite all their current online/offline agents to register with ET and start updating them instantly. Imagine, instead of calculating several Excel spreadsheets with a various markups for different categories, and resending them to your agents each time when you update the rates, or decide to give a special/lastminute offer – you simply update the ET and all the updates will be instantly available for all of your agents. Instead of answering tons of emails and phone calls about the property availability, you simply give access to your inventory and your business partners will have 24h/7days access without any disturbance to you.
