In the travel, transportation, and hotel context, a system refers to a set of interconnected components or software that work together to perform a specific function or set of functions. These systems can include everything from reservations systems, to inventory management systems, to transportation management systems.
Examples of systems in the travel, transportation, and hotel context include:
- Reservation systems: These systems allow customers to book accommodations, transportation, and other travel services. They typically include a database of available rooms, flights, and rental cars, as well as a booking engine that allows customers to select their travel dates and make reservations. Examples include: Sabre, Amadeus and Travelport
- Inventory management systems: These systems are used to manage the inventory of rooms and other accommodations. They allow hotels and other properties to track the availability of rooms and adjust pricing in real-time based on demand. Examples include: Duetto and SiteMinder
- Transportation management systems: These systems are used by transportation companies, such as airlines and bus companies, to manage their fleet of vehicles, routes, and schedules. They allow companies to track the location of vehicles, monitor fuel consumption, and adjust routes and schedules to optimize efficiency. Examples include: Trapeze and RouteSavvy
- Property management systems: These systems are used by hotels, resorts, and vacation rental properties to manage reservations, guest check-in and check-out, room assignments, and other functions. They also include billing and reporting features. Examples include: Softbrands, Protel and InnQuest.
These systems can be integrated with other systems and platforms, such as customer relationship management (CRM) systems or financial management systems, to provide a comprehensive view of the business and its operations.
