DS Launches Cloud Hosting Service for Online Functionality

06/02/2019

UK Flag

Distinctive Systems has launched a low cost cloud hosting service for our: -

  • Coach Manager Online Website and Client, Driver and Operations Portals
  • Tour Booking System Website
  • Vehicle Maintenance System Electronic Job Card

As an alternative to hosting these applications on their own web server, clients can now choose to have them hosted in the cloud on a web server managed by Distinctive Systems.

The cloud-based functionality of all three systems can be accessed via a web browser running on a desktop computer, laptop, tablet or smartphone and covers: -

Coach Manager
The cloud-based functionality of Coach Manager includes the Coach Manager Online Website and content management system, plus our award winning Client, Driver and Operations Portals.

The Coach Manager Online Website and content management system make it easy for operators to build their own corporate website, entirely within Coach Manager, without needing to have any website design skills or special technical knowledge.

The Client Portal lets an operator's clients request and accept quotations, list and check their bookings, view a statement of account and make secure online card payments.

The Driver Portal lets drivers log in remotely to view a diary showing the bookings they have been allocated to. Clicking on a booking will bring up the full details of its work ticket.

The Operations Portal lets traffic office staff log in when they are out of the office to view all the bookings for a given day in a diary and then add, or change, vehicle and driver allocations.

The Coach Manager Online Website and all three portals are included as standard with every Coach Manager system. 

Coach Manager Online hosting price: £16.25 per month with free initial setup.

Tour Booking System
Our Tour Booking System can build a fully automated website generated entirely from details entered directly into TBS as tours are assembled. This allows operators to create and maintain an online presence without needing to have any website design skills or special technical knowledge.

The TBS website is hosted in the cloud and can handle online reservations from travel agents and direct clients, with real-time processing of card payments and automatic emailing of confirmations.

Pricing for the TBS Website hosting service is dependent on the size of the TBS system. The pricing structure has been designed to make the service a highly economical proposition for operators with small to medium sized tour or excursion programmes.

TBS Website hosting price: From £16.25 per month with free initial setup. Please see the TBS Pricing page for full details.

Vehicle Maintenance System
For many of our clients the Vehicle Maintenance System Electronic Job Card is a purely internal application and so doesn't need to be hosted in the cloud. However, clients with multiple bases, or those wanting access to the VMS Electronic Job Card on the road, do require the application to be hosted.

VMS Electronic Job Card hosting price: £16.25 per month with free initial setup.
