Anthology - The Travellers' Collection

 

Dynamic Website and Marketing Integration

Anthology is a new Australian travel company providing unique travel experiences. They required a website that would communicate their brand in addition to selling their individual travel experiences. This website needs to grow quickly as Anthology adds new experiences to their collection. This project however is more than just a website. Datalive Software has developed custom software components and continues to assist with online marketing to provide a fully integrated solution.

Online Walk Booking System

In addition to the website, Datalive Software was given the task of developing an online booking system for the Cradle Huts and Bay of Fires walk. This needed to interface with the Walk Management System that we had developed several years earlier.

Key to an online booking system is maximising the online inventory whilst ensuring that overbooking doesn’t occur. To achieve this we created a secure connection between the two systems that allowed full availability to be synchronised and temporary reservations created. It also facilitated the automatic insertion of completed bookings into the management system, saving staff from manual data entry.

Taking its first booking within hours of going live, the online booking system has been a great success, making the process easy for customers and saving time for staff.
