About TrekkSoft

TrekkSoft is built for tour operators, activity providers, tourism offices and destination management companies to manage and market all online and offline bookings from one platform, enabling them to increase revenue, simplify day-to-day operations and expand their business in today’s digitally connected world.

The TrekkSoft Booking & Rental System allows merchants to build a live inventory of bookable products that guest can pay for via the TrekkSoft Payment Gateway. The TrekkSoft Channel Manager can connect these experiences across multiple distribution platforms while eliminating the risk of overbookings. Users can choose to connect to other TrekkSoft customers to cross-sell activities at no additional charge via the TrekkSoft Partner Network and use the TrekkSoft Marketplace API to drive more visitors to their destination.
