TourConnect and Tourplan to get more travel product to market, faster and with better data

We are very excited to announce our integration with Tourplan is ready to go live. The integration between TourConnect and Tourplan is leading the charge for the industry to change how things have always been done. Please see the announcement below for details on this next step towards making the tourism industry more efficient.

TourConnect & Tourplan Integration Announcement

TourConnect, the travel trade network and marketplace, and Tourplan, one of the world’s leading tour operator software providers, have announced that their ground breaking integration is ready to go live. The integration enables tour operators to automatically upload annual supplier rates into their booking management system, significantly reducing the time and expense that comes with manual data entry.

“We saw an opportunity to help make the contracting process more efficient and cost-effective for our clients,” said Craig Gray, Sales and Marketing Director at Tourplan. “The release of the TourConnect integration is a significant step towards helping tour operators streamline this aspect of their businesses and get new contract rates to their agents more quickly.”

With the TourConnect integration, Tourplan customers can:
• Instantly load rates into Tourplan with the touch of a button
• Save money by reducing costs associated with manually loading annual rates
• Load more products, with better information, faster
• Track the end-to-end annual contracting process – from requesting rates, to receiving rates, to reviewing rates, to loading rates

“Our goal is to not only connect travel suppliers with the tour operators and agents that sell their products, but to also give them tools to manage their businesses effectively,” said Michael Herrmann, Founding Partner at TourConnect. “The Tourplan integration will get more product to market faster, and with better information. This integration is the first of many innovations TourConnect will be releasing this year.”

Tour operators can create a free TourConnect account today. The integration is available to Tourplan customers on Enterprise and Connectivity editions of Tourplan. Details of the integration can be found at our Tourplan integration information page.
