TrekkSoft launches a brand new seamless sign up process
Swiss based web start up TrekkSoft launched a new online sign up process for tour operators, activity providers, tourist offices and travel agents.
TrekkSoft started their operation in Switzerland in 2010 with the goal of developing the best tour operator booking engine as a SAAS (Software as a Service) project. Initially the company was created out of the need to develop a high performance online booking solution for the tour operators Bus2Alps Ltd. (www.bus2alps.com) and Outdoor Interlaken Ltd. (www.outdoor-interlaken.ch). “By working very closely with the team from Bus2Alps
and Outdoor Interlaken we could develop a tailor made online software
for tour operators” says Philippe Willi, CEO of TrekkSoft Ltd.
A new development to the online solution offered by TrekkSoft is the integrated payment gateway. Tour operators can register themselves on www.trekksoft.com, in the set up process they can choose if they want to use the TrekkSoft.com payment gateway, their own PSP (Payment Service Provider) or a PayPal Merchant Account.
The business model of TrekkSoft is based on a transaction fee model. For every online transaction made in favour of a tour operator, TrekkSoft charges 4 % (if the tour operator uses PayPal Merchant account or a own PSP) or 6 % (when using the TrekkSoft Payment Gateway where all credit card fees are included).
So far the system has been used by over 180 000 passengers, which generated over 83 000 paid baskets from over 68 000 registered users. “Presently 54 tour operators and activity providers use our system, hopefully this number will increase significantly with the launch of the new sign up process” says Philippe Willi, CEO of TrekkSoft.
