February 2014 - The focus of the year ahead

2013 was a busy year for TourCMS with a major increase in suppliers using us to run their websites, their daily operations and their distribution to travel agents, hotel concierges and web affiliates. Collectively we did around 100 million USD through the system (and 2014 is looking like a 200 million USD year) People always ask us what is our focus going forwards? It is actually quite a hard question to answer in public but here goes Day tours & transfersContinue to build great…See More

"Hi Alex, This 80% rule applies to the online tours I presume? We have a lot scaresly used or off line only tours/hotels and it would make no sence to scale all of them up to the 80% rule.  Regards, Luit "

9th November - Work ongoing on descriptions, images and moving product configuration around

Variety of important changes made recently to the TourCMS system



Product configuration

* Hotel product types now hidden - although still possible to turn on hotel product types if you go to Configuration & Setup - tours general settings
