Chicago Retro Boats

Tour and Activity Booking Partner

TRYTN Online Reservation Management System

TRYTN has partnered with Chicago Retroboats to increase direct sales of their electric boat tours given on the Chicago River and Lake Michigan. Customers can go online to the new website created by TRYTN and reserve a boat tour on the TRYTN online booking engine.

This is the second subsidiary company of Chicago Electric Boat Company to launch with TRYTN for both website services and online booking and just the most recent tour and activity business in the growing Chicago market. Chicago Cycleboats, the first subsidiary company of Chicago Electric Boat Company to launch with TRYTN, has seen a dramatic increase in direct, online bookings after switching from their previous provider with fewer issues of overselling tours.

TRYTN offers powerful asset management solutions that support the unique nature of the cycle/pedal tour operator; supporting both public and private tours for the same assets (cycle boats) while maximizing online sales. By offering both options with the TRYTN asset management solutions Chicago Cycleboats can offer more products while automatically removing capacity from one tour when another is booked by a customer.
