Tour Management so you can Guide a Memorable Experience
You need the tools that can keep pace with your busy schedule of daily tours and those tools must be able to adapt to special circumstances like a holiday rush. ThunderTix tour management software is powerful yet easy-to-use so you can focus on your business. Creating memorable experiences is your area of expertise – let us show you ours. Here are the benefits of using our Tour Manage Software:
Set Recurring Dates and Times with a Few Mouse Clicks
Walking tours and sightseeing trips are often scheduled to occur multiple times a day, everyday, throughout the entire year , creating a daunting amount of data entry. Our tour management lets you set a tour date and time then easily populate for every day of the year – all at once – no need to enter the same date and time over and over.
Then, as your recurring tours elapse, our software automatically updates the schedule displayed on your web site. The public tour is displayed as a custom calendar date range, preventing multiple dates from cluttering your web site and making it hard for buyers to find their desired dates.
Save Time and Harness the Power of Coupons
Our custom coupons save you time by letting groups choose the coupon offer date they want and reserve the appropriate amount of tickets – all without a lengthy telephone call. You can fine tune the coupons to fit your needs, targeting different tours, or times. We also give you control over coupon redemption, including how it is to be redeemed, by whom, and how much of a discount is to be applied on a per-offer bias.
Save even more time by bulk uploading coupon codes from daily deal sites like Groupon. When a someone buys a daily deal they are assigned a unique code, then Groupon provides the you a spreadsheet of all purchases, customers, and codes. That’s when the Tour Management plan’s bulk import comes in to play. You import all the Groupon codes into your ThunderTix account with just a few mouse clicks – no entering all those codes one-by-one!
Create an Urgent Need to Buy Tickets
Need to bump ticket sales velocity up a few notches for a certain date or time? No problem. The Tour Management plan lets you assign a “zero” to the number of available tickets to any tour slot, creating a sense of urgency to buy the tour just before or after. Ticket availability displays to the public can be customized to respond to your sales volume requirements.
Tailor an Existing Tour for the Holiday Rush
Guided tours are most popular when people have the time off from work to take them, and is usually around the holidays. Your event on July the 3rd is just like it was when you set in January, but July 4th needs eight extra shows!
We help you meet the seasonal demand for your tour tickets by giving you the ability to modify individual tour names within a larger event for holidays. Your tour can have special side trips or change from its normal route as a way to commemorate a holiday (“4th of July Sightseeing Tour – Fireworks on the Pier!“). We make this easy to do and we include the ability to increase or decrease the ticket prices for the special holiday exceptions.
Respond to Supply & Demand by Modifying Tour Capacities
Should experience show a certain tour date has different sales volumes than the rest, you can modify the number of tickets available. ThunderTix tour management software can even raise or lower capacity for tours down to an hourly basis. We give you the fine grained control to establish ticket amounts by the year, week, day, time, whatever is needed. Supply and demand are conditions all business operate with and we know your tour is no different.
Dynamically Generate Messages by Ticket Availability
Our technology is able to track your tour’s ticket sales based on the capacity you set. As ticket sales progress, a sales inspiring message will be automatically generated based on ticket availability (“Hurry! There are less than 5 tickets remaining.“) These messages shown to people visiting your website increase sales velocity while reducing the dreaded cart abandonment. Ticket availability messages are proof we are committed to doing everything we can to make your tour a consistent long term success.
Offer Lucrative Merchandise Up-Sells like T-Shirts
“Been there. Done that. Got the T-shirt” is what everyone wants to be able to say. You can make that happen with our tour management plan and the ability to add up-sells and extras during the ticket purchasing process. Sightseeing guides can include vouchers for parking and set whatever price they want for that convenience. Walking tours of can include food and drinks along the way at restaurants or end a tour with a special banquette (“Mystery Dinner Theater at the End of Friday’s Tour”) T-shirt included.
Avoid Buyer Confusion with Search Options
Tours often are so frequent that they can end up being information overload as seen buy the would be ticket buyer. Our user friendly calendar date search option solve that by letting people search for a tour slot by date and/or time. This makes finding the listing much easier, improving the ticket buying experience on your website. Our tour management software adapts to your listings as they elapse over the course of the calendar year by not showing the public tour dates that have come and gone – only what’s available for immediate purchase.
Recoup Costs Faster with Ticket Fees
Ticket fees can be used to recoup costs as quickly as possible or be part of a larger strategy to begin funding new tours. You have total control over how fees are applied, either on a per-ticket or a per-order basis. Ticket fees and services charges applied per on a per-order basis encourage large groups or the travel agents your are already working closely with. Reminder – We do not apply any ticket fees of our own, but you may add and keep any fees you care to add.
The Tour Management Software is priced as a flat annual license based on the number of tickets needed per year. The only cost outside of the license fee is the cost of credit card processing. Give us a call and you can be up and running, selling tickets online today!
