Tour operator system for coach and bus companies
With the Bus & Transfer module for Pacific you can intuitively create main and secondary routes and manage boarding and de-boarding, distances, durations and costs. The system automatically determines your available vacancies and prices, and transfers these to the integrated distribution channels. The solution supports multiple currencies and the price calculation can be carried out transnationally, taking the various national taxes into consideration.
In the master data you can manage your vehicles with information about the equipment and even add a graphic seating chart. You can also manage your drivers and tour guides as to their certificates, language skills etc. and assign them to the tours as needed.
Bookings are easily done via a graphic interface with selection of the stop and, if desired, the seat. All bookings can be exported as clearly laid out lists for the bus driver, including information about passengers, times, bus stops and the booked seats. All other relevant documents, such as vouchers and coupons or specific statistics for your tours are also available. These documents can be created in any language desired.
Besides the bus services you can sell additional services with Pacific to further increase your profit.

Internet Booking Engine for Tour Operators
With our Internet Booking Engine, your customer can carry out their booking right on your website, too. The new real-time integration with Pacific for coach and bus operators sends bookings directly to the system. Separate booking pages for B2B and B2C have become as normal as managing separate prices for these sales channels.Internet Booking Engine
Customer Relationship Management for Coach and Bus Operators
The CRM system Emerald supports the entire value chain of the tourism process – from initial contact and catalog orders to campaigns, complaints, and sales. When connected to Pacific, the two systems interact and exchange data in real-time. When a booking is entered in Pacific, the customer data immediately becomes available in Emerald for campaigns such as up- and cross-selling.Customer Relationship Management Emerald Request reference list
