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. 



Thought leadership topics:


The founding story: TrekkSoft CEO Jon Fauver left a lifestyle career as a raft guide in the Himalaya to become an entrepreneur, a tour operator and eventually landed as the founder of a startup in travel.

On the mountain: the TrekkSoft story
- How a tech startup grew out of a Swiss mountain town

Startup life at altitude: Forget about Silicon Valley, incubators or free-laundry service - the TrekkSoft HQ in Interlaken appeals to the high-educated millennial employee that seeks a work/life balance that maximises what they get out of life, beyond the office.  

TrekkSoft Team Week: When work meets lake swimming and ropes coures
Forget about free laundry, the best perks get your team out the office

Extinct or evolve: Tours and activities is the third largest segment in tourism but remains fragmented, demanding and primarily offline. Yet trends indicate evolution is about to speed up with gross online bookings for tours and activities expected to double by 2020.

Sell experiences, not things: Today’s travellers seek authentic experiences that connect to the local history or culture. Destinations that showcase bookable experiences help local suppliers generate more revenue and delight visitors with greater choice and convenience.
