Objective of the Project:
The aim of this project is to study the daily business operations of a tour and travels business/ operator, examine their existing information system in detail and suggest changes/ improvements in their existing Management Information system. As part of this assignment, we chose to study the system prevailing in Kirty Tours and Travels, Nasik. Kirty tours is a fairly big tours and travels operator having 4 branches in Nasik city and provides services like bus, rail and air ticket booking, package holiday and tours and pilgrimage bookings. In this endeavour we would like to make the business more responsive and flexible by proposing a new MIS system which can serve the overall information needs of the business. Our proposed MIS system will tightly integrate financial, booking and customer management systems. Our MIS system integrates all phases of travel management - submitting initial requests, planning, online booking, and submitting and settling travel expenses. The application includes a tailored user interface for all roles involved in processes used by travel agent. The new travel Management MIS provides an end-to-end solution for managing business of a travel agent. The solution provides features and functions that allow them to perform:
Travel planning and online booking – This system enables travel agent to book flights, hotels, cars, and country-specific rail options, as well as look up related information. In addition, the application fully supports communication with customer, making interactions more efficient. Travel management reporting – Travel management MIS system supports decision-making and facilitates the development and implementation of new travel management strategies.
Travel Management system optimizes the entire trip life cycle, from travel requests and approvals through planning and reservations, travel bills management, policy compliance, and analytics. These are a few reasons why the management of Kirty tours and travels should look for new / proposed MIS system:
End-to-end solution –Travel Management system requires no development or additional interfaces. Integration with Finance – The application is completely integrated with the financials. Reduced indirect costs – We can dramatically reduce indirect costs by automating your processes and workflow. Improved compliance – The proposed MIS system ensures improved compliance with travel agency’s policy and negotiated travel contracts. Booking consolidation – The new MIS provides a reliable analysis of travel information and costs through synchronization with reservation systems. Improved cash flow – Efficient accounting cycles and up-to-date cost information result in better cash flow.
