GolfSwitch, the world’s largest online real time tee-time distribution network, aims to expand its burgeoning network even further at November’s International Golf Travel Market (IGTM), in Belek,Turkey.

GolfSwitch’s European Managing Director, Jo Maes, is expecting a big demand for his time at the event and will be accompanied by GolfSwitch’s VP of Sales, Scott Mayer from Scottsdale, Arizona. Both of them will be available to take appointments during the three exiting days at IGTM

He said: “Last year, my diary was completely full and it was unfortunate that I had to turn down opportunities due to lack of time. This year I will be assisted by our VP of Sales, Scott Mayer, who knows the GolfSwitch products inside out and can assist golf resorts and tour operators in understanding how to make the most of their online presence.

He added: “I am particularly excited that over the past few months we have rolled out several new products and the uptake on those has been immense. Many of our courses have been transferred to our new white label portal product which allows them to show different rates for different times of the day and multiple courses in one view.”

GolfSwitch has rolled out white label Facebook andMobilebooking engines that can be used by golf courses and or resellers to allow their customers to book via the world’s largest social network and through mobile applications.

Jo Maes also said: “In the run up to IGTM we are particularly delighted that we have more and more travel companies and tour operators looking at the GolfSwitch solutions that allow them to become more efficient and cost effective. Our online tools for Tour Operators allow them to introduce a real time booking engine in their back office environment to book rounds of golf both on courses with which they have their own billing relationship but it also opens it up to the more than 2,000 golf courses in the GolfSwitch portfolio.

“Utilising experience built up over the last 12 years, GolfSwitch has cemented its place as the market leader in tee-time distribution by powering white-label electronic tee-time reservations for thousands of travel agents, hotels and resorts, tour operators, visitor’s bureaux, and more than 5,000 websites, including recent European additions KLM Air France Flying Blue Golf, Ryanair Golf Direct, Orbitz, Expedia, Bookandgolf, Hardelot Golf, Golf-Away and ”
