Web services used to transform online reservation system

“The automated system eliminated 3-5 minutes of re-keying data per transaction. Trainees get it right away. We are saving approximately 15 hours of training time for new staff because they are already familiar with the graphical interface. What this has done is greatly improve inventory control, which is a huge deal. Inventory assignment is much more accurate because the system now works in realtime.”
