What makes Origin’s guide scheduling software so dang good?

Guide Availability Texting

Guides receive a text message to accept or reject a newly booked trip based on their availability and priority. When they accept, they receive an email invite to add the trip to their calendar.

Personal Guide Calendars

Origin frees up your time by helping your guides manage their own schedules. You’ll always know who’s guiding what trips, their availability, and where they are.

Automatic Guide Priority

The software can automatically assign guides according to their priority or rank determined by you.

Client-To-Guide Ratio

Maximize your resources and put safety at the forefront of your trips by configuring the number of guests one guide can lead. Origin takes care of the rest and only shows available seats per guide to your customers.

There are a lot of online booking platforms.

But only Origin gives you the full-service guide management you’ve been looking for.

Guide Scheduling Software On Autopilot

We know how difficult it can be to get in touch with your guides, especially when you’re trying to schedule dozens of them across multiple geographical areas for different activities. 

Trying to manage multiple guides’ schedules and booking reservations may lead to double booking guides or booking a trip without a guide entirely.

Having both your trip and guide schedules in Origin leaves less room for error and fewer frustrations because it’s streamlined for you. Origin makes it so the right guides can accept the right trips. It means you know who’s guiding what, when, and where at all times. 

Using Origin’s guide scheduling software prevents overbooking your guides or canceling a tour last minute because you couldn’t find anyone available. And if you’d rather keep it manual, that’s available to you too.

"You just manage your schedule, and the system follows suit. I go in and mark the days I’ll be gone and the software takes care of it for me."

Always Have Enough Guides For Your Trips

Do you cringe thinking about those last-minute texts canceling reservations because of an overbooked tour? You can’t get a hold of another guide. Your guest is angry. You’re overwhelmed.

Simplify your guide scheduling process by automatically maintaining the correct client-to-guide ratios. The system auto-configures the number of open spots based on available guides.

Your clients can’t book if there aren’t enough guides available. You won’t have to worry about canceling a booking or refunding your client should you fall short on guides.

Auto-Assign Guides Based On Their Seniority Or Qualifications

This smart feature gives you more control over who leads groups.

Use Origin’s guide scheduling software to rank guides based on experience, knowledge, or interests.

When you rank a guide, the system automatically assigns higher-ranked guides first and goes down the list based on availability.

"Because we only had one calendar, we couldn't have the multiple guides log in, input their calendars, and update it. And so I was constantly having to check in with people weekly and be like, “Hey, is this still your availability?” Giving guides that autonomy [with Origin] to have access to this, where I can be like, “Hey, by this deadline, you have to give me your availability. If you don't, I'm going to assume you're not available, and that's going to affect your income.” That's been really, really helpful and taken a lot off of my plate as far as worrying about the availability."

Empower Your Guides

With Origin, guides can create and manage their own schedules. They can automatically accept or reject trips through the system or text messages (so they don’t have to be at a computer).

If guides need to block out time or set a different schedule every week, Origin’s guide scheduling software adapts and updates in real-time.

Free up your time and make managing guide schedules easier.
