The Jewel Integrated Booking System

for Tour Desks and Visitor Information Centres

Overview

The Jewel Integrated Booking System (JIBS) is a fully integrated Point of Sale System for Tourism Retailers, designed to speed up the booking process for front counter staff and to cut administration costs at the back office.

It does this through integration with various supplier interfaces to provide real time product availability and instant booking confirmations.  These interfaces include;

  • The Australian Tourism Data Warehouse (ATDW)
  • Tourism Exchange Australia (TXA)
  • The Jewel Reservation System (JRS) (used by Tour Operators throughout Australia and NZ)
  • Plus the option for manually configured product from local non-integrated suppliers.

JIBS is a complete solution for VICs also providing Integrated EFTPOS facilities, an Integrated Website Booking Engine, Posting facilities to Accounts and advanced reporting tools.
