How to use pam-POS Desk, and how it can be useful for you!

The Point-of-Sale Desk is our  booking management collaboration tool. Pos Desk is used to deliver a great booking and marketing tool for our sales team, travel partners, and resellers. The POS desk is easy to use, allowing, you, your staff, and even your guests to use it without any training.

Get real-time updates on availabilities, upsell customers with add-ons and take payments in-person. During a tour, pull up details on upcoming bookings and get all the information you need about your guests.

You can use pam-POS Desk on a tablet or laptop as an activity booklet to display trip information like your tour itinerary, maps, and pictures of your tours.

POS Desk Overview

Engineered  by Trekksoft to be used by hotel concierges or travel agents who usually recommend “things to do” to their guests. This is a great opportunity to resell local tours and activities.

Some companies use it as a self-serve kiosk where customers can just browse through the activities on their own without having to wait in a queue to speak to a sales agent.
