Booking Management Software
for Railways, Tours & Boat Trips

Manage retail, cafe and tours within one system
Merlin is an all-in-one system which brings retail, catering and tour operations into a single software package. This means you can sell or amend tour reservations from any point of sale, introduce site-wide membership discounts - while using these to track visitor spending habits, and quickly redeploy staff to bottlenecks unabated by training concerns.

For retail, Merlin expertly handles any kind of product file, including clothing and weighted goods. In catering applications, mobile printing means that food cheques can be directed instantly to a kitchen printer. For tours, we've included a range of controls, allowing each tour type to run at different times, on different days, with different ticket types, each run with its own maximum booking capacity.

Easily sell tours & bookings online

The same comprehensive tour options available at point of sale can also be chosen online through our exclusive booking portal, Merlin Tickets. Customers can choose a date, time slot and ticket type through our user friendly, AA compliant booking site, which will be setup to match your branding, and even embedded within your own website with our widget.

When bookings are placed online, your customers receive an email confirmation, which includes a unique barcoded ticket to be scanned at point of sale. Your Merlin point of sale will instantly reflect the new quantity available, and the payment will be directly sent to your account.
