Sejour implementation to streamline DMC operations

DERTOUR Group is collaborating with SAN Tourism Software Group (SAN TSG) to advance its Destination Management Companies’ (DMCs) IT solution, paving the way for enhanced operational efficiency.

SAN TSG, a prominent player in tourism technology, will stand as DERTOUR Group’s Technology Partner, supporting the digital evolution within the DMC area. This is an important step in DERTOUR Group’s objective to deliver on customer centricity and digital convenience, which are key pillars of the company’s strategy.

Central to this partnership is the implementation of the Sejour DMC software, a dynamic solution renowned for its comprehensive end-to-end capabilities allowing for more efficient and customer-friendly processes around e.g. excursions and transfer services. With a presence in over 70 countries, the software’s footprint extends to more than 600 active partners and thousands of users.

The implementation of Sejour aims to address the evolving requirements of DERTOUR Group’s DMCs and deliver optimal performance, with special focus on the logistics in destination, customer services and connectivity to clients and suppliers. The new software includes modules and applications for operational and back-office workflows enabling the different DER DMC companies across the globe to automate and streamline processes, as e.g., reservation management, transfer coordination, excursion distribution. Furthermore, it will enhance data management, make finance processes smoother, and collaboration more efficient. The software will not only integrate seamlessly with ATCOM, the booking and reservation system used at DERTOUR Group, but also lay the foundation for new mobile solutions in the future. An additional opportunity will be the implementation of the Paximum platform, which allows to deliver dynamic products and real-time data to B2B customers.

Joao Gonzaga, Chief Digital Officer of DERTOUR Group, emphasized the impact of the partnership: “The implementation of Sejour marks a significant milestone in our digital evolution. This software solution will reshape key DMC processes, elevating the operational efficiency, customer engagement, and growth avenues. We are excited about our partnership with SAN, as it’s a pivotal step towards unlocking new opportunities and further advancing our capabilities.”

Dr. Klaus-Ulrich Sperl, CEO DMC of DERTOUR Group, added: “We recognize Sejour’s pivotal role in meeting the requirements of our DMCs and we strongly believe that this integration will not only meet but excel in delivering optimal performance.”

Erol Türk, Chairman of the Board at SAN TSG, said: “Our collaboration with DERTOUR Group goes beyond Sejour, extending to the technologies of Global Travel Marketplace Paximum, a subsidiary of SAN Tourism Software Group. We are honored to be chosen as DERTOUR Group’s technology partner and are looking forward to contributing to their digital transformation.”

The migration to Sejour is set to start during the winter season of 2023/2024, with DERTOUR Group’s multinational project team spearheading the transition. This partnership reaffirms DERTOUR Group’s commitment to its digital transformation journey and providing a more user-friendly experience for its customers and partners.
