The reservations-focused tool drastically reduces time spent manually processing email bookings by using intelligent technology

Dallas, TX – 28 February 2023 TourConnect announced today the launch of its new Booking Automation Tool. The tool uses advanced technology that promises to unleash a technological revolution in the tourism industry.

The Booking Automation Tool is an email add-in that connects a supplier’s inbox to their booking system to automatically create bookings from the available data. On the surface it looks very simple; however, the power of the tool is its ability to intelligently extract key booking data from any email and pre-fill the booking form in the add-in, accurately. This capability drastically reduces the time it takes to create, cancel, update, and search bookings that come into a reservation team’s inbox. The tool saves money by reducing time spent processing bookings and reducing costly mistakes made during manual data entry.

“Placing bookings manually is a thing of the past! The ability to quickly, accurately, and automatically process bookings directly from an email is a major game-changer!” said Jessica Horton, the reservations manager at Go West Tours in Australia.

TourConnect’s first two integration partners are FareHarbor and Ventrata. New integrations will come with additional reservation systems in the near future.

The tool is initially available to non-accommodation operators, such as tours, activities, and attractions. Accommodation suppliers (hotels, resorts, B&B’s, etc.) will have access to the tool in the coming months.

“This tool is just the beginning,” said Michael Herrmann, Founder & President of TourConnect. “The use of advanced technology, such as the tech within the Booking Automation Tool and our integration partners, will finally give companies a way to circumvent the inefficient, outdated technology that has burdened our industry for years.”
