7 Data MappingTMS is designed in such a manner that it takes care of the following things:Ease of Data Entry as all transactions are mapped to standard tables thus providing a lot of control thus eliminating user data entry errors to a large extent.2. Strong categorization of standard tables to enable Management with MIS Reporting3. Master Clean Up which should be done at least once a month to remove all duplicate and redundant data in the standard tablesTypical standard tables are Resort, Resort Type, Service Type, City, State, Country etc.
8 Enquiry ManagementEnquiry to a Travel House originates from various sources:FaxWalk – InTelephonicAll enquiries are entered into a system through a customized form except online enquiries.These enquiries are entered and handed over to the customer service person to follow up.The tasks to be performed on an enquiry are:AssignForwardShare
9 Load Balancing of Enquiries Enquiries will be automatically read from the online s generated from the company’s website. These will be classified according to the subject matter or the address.This will eliminate a huge amount of data entry for the company and will be able to track all enquiries.Enquiries from online mails as well as from other sources will be automatically assigned to the respective customer service persons. But prior to that, the system will check on the no. of pending enquiries with each person and will do an automatic load balancing and will assign the enquiry to the one who has the least no. of open enquiries.The enquiry will be replied also from the system. The system offers a small Outlook look alike mail client. Thus all messages are directly stored in the system for further reference and marked against an enquiry
10 Flow for Resort Enquiries The system flow for the enquiry of reservation is:Enquiries are forwarded by the Customer Service Executive (CSE) to the Booker PersonThe Booker person checks for the Availability and the Tariff and the no. of rooms and room typeAt the same time, he also would take information about other dates than the enquiry date.This data will be fed into the system by the booker and the reservation is passed back to the CSE. The CSE then replies back from the system itself to the customer for various options.The CSE then marks against an enquiry the various status whether it is confirmed, follow-up date or closed without confirmation and citing the reason for the same
11 Reservation ModuleAll enquiries which get confirmed get converted into a reservation which could be either for ticketing, other services or for resort / hotel booking.The ticketing data will be entered into the system directly with the payment details.Similarly, other services like pure car rental will be directly entered into the system directly with the payment collection details.The resort reservation is one which is very complex and requires detailed discussion.Based on this, the respective invoices can be generated for the customer.
12 Resort Reservation Module Resort / Hotel Reservation system flow is as follows:Enquiry gets confirmed into a Reservation.Reservation is handed over to Booker to check for availability and tariffs. If already pre-entered during enquiry this process is overridden.The booker confirms the reservation with the resort and passes back the information to the CSE.The confirmation or the booking note is sent to the customer citing the payment schedule and the invoice.Once the advance is received, a reservation note is sent to the customer as well as the resort.The system also takes care of cancellation of reservations.
13 Payment Module The payment towards the booking comes in various forms: Collection from the branch city either through cash or cheque.Walk-in Payments via cash or credit card.Payments via online payment gateways which includes bank, pay pal etc.Receipt of Cheque, DD or P.O.There is a module to automatically reconcile with the payment gateways and update this data into the Accounts ModuleBranch City collection is detailed whereby one can assign the person to collect from the customers address and reconcile at the end of the day the collections made.
14 Reporting ModuleThe system has a OLAP tool built into it. This facilitates the user to generate thousands of reports by himself and on the fly within seconds.
