TTS continue to help Eurotunnel improve consumer and trade websites.
During the last 18 months Travel Technology Systems have delivered new fully transactional desktop/tablet websites together with a new mobile booking website for Eurotunnel Le Shuttle to improve direct consumer bookings. The new designs feature completely new booking journeys.
In the Groupe Eurotunnel Annual Report released in March 2015 Eurotunnel referred to the new website: 'A faster, easier booking module for Le Shuttle is now available online, including bookings via smartphones. In barely 3 months, the new functionalities have already boosted online sales by 3%, reduced by 20% the number of cancelled bookings and significantly raised the sales of FlexiPlus, our Premium service'.
'80% Passenger Shuttles revenues are generated via our website, which corresponds to 3,000 to 4,000 online bookings per day'.
According to Geoff Bishop, Eurotunnel Le Shuttles IT Engagement Manager "I've seen web bookings on the new site reach 4800 per day".
TTS have now commenced a project to revamp the trade customer booking websites, starting with Travel Agents, which launched at the beginning of March 2016. During the coming months TTS will be developing enriched functionality for Freight Vans, Tour Operator and Coach Operator bookings.
TTS CEO, Chris March commented "We are delighted with the relationship we have formed with Eurotunnel and look forward to helping them further by delivering enhanced solutions to augment booking productivity across all their booking channels".
