DESTINATION MANAGEMENT SUITE
Destination Management Suite features the most advanced and comprehensive suite
of management programs available. The program follows conventional Windows
standards throughout allowing full integration into existing networks. It
includes a host of user definable configuration options that can be tailored to
suit different environments from 'Call Centres' and 'Marketing Departments', to
'Tourist Information Centres' and 'Public Access Kiosks'. Configurations range
from screen layout to a choice of colours. There is also at 'Design Module'
where customised databases can be designed in-house; using this facility a
Membership database can take one form in Marketing and a totally different one
in the accounts department.
|To assist destinations
with the dissemination of information all modules have multiple options for
search and select using various criteria, ideal for generating information
sheets to either view or print. Modules can be used by the 'Reporter' providing
a further dimension to the suite. 'Report and Statistical' generation, as well
as label printing, is provided as part of the core product.
The Brochure Response module has been totally re-designed as part of the TIM
development program and now provides a level of functionality that would be the
envy of any Marketing Manager; from basic data capture (using embedded postcode
software) and label printing to sophisticated reporting and import and export
As the TIM-DMS has been developed to current Windows standards the
central database can be directly interfaced with most industry standard
software. This provides simple dynamic interfacing with Counter Systems, Call
Centre, Public Access and the World Wide Web either through CTV or third party
software developers making the product one of the most flexible on the market.
The PAT (Public Access Terminal) element is not a separate program but
simply a module within the TIM DMS. By simply selecting one 'button' from
the TIM home page your management suite is converted into a full
multimedia 'Touchscreen' system. There is no need for additional data entry as PAT
accesses the same database as TIM.

Since inception in
1988 TIM has seen many changes in Information Technology and has always been
developed in line with current demands and requirements. TIM4 is the latest in
the line of CTV developments and is once again the benchmark in sophistication
and functionality, yet still retaining the user-friendly interface synonymous
with CTV products.
TIM4 has been developed using full windows 32-bit technology. CTV has chosen C++
coupled with an industry standard database engine as the development platform
for TIM4. This provides easy scalability to industry standard databases such as
Sybase, Oracle and SQL. CTV deliberately avoided the current trend of using the
latest proprietary 'high street' database products in order not to limit the
scope for future development. TIM will operate under Windows '95, 98,2000
Windows NT, Windows Terminal Server and Novell networks.
