  • Firstly, Thanks to the organisers for the invitation to speak today. My brief was to deliver a presentation outlining specific functionality, important choices you may need to make when choosing new software and the different modules that your resort business will need to operate. With emphasis more and more on the clients and prospects using mobile technology to communicate instantly in real time its more important than ever to choose the right software for your resort business. Another brief from Paul Dean was to make the presentation simple to understand using little or no teccie speak. I should have no problem with this part as i am living proof that being a carpenter in a former life its true what Arthur C Clarke once said .....
  • I will cover three main areas throughout the presentation today Why its really important to industry specific software for your business Infrastructure and the main differences between old or traditional technology versus the new technology available today I will detail the essential modules required to make the running of your business efficient, scalable and future proofed
