St Albans, Herts, United Kingdom, 2008/11/26 - When Brandspace, part of the Promotion Space Group, a leading provider of promotional space management, wanted to update its booking application system, it turned to software developer Live Software Solutions.
Tom Boother, business development manager at Live Software Solutions (LSS), a Microsoft Gold Certified Partner which develops and delivers software for, among others, the insurance and publishing sectors, explained: “London-based Brandspace works with property owners, agencies, retailers and top brands. It deals exclusively with several hundred venues in the UK.
“Its booking application system has some 20 internal users and over 500 external users. All of these users need to add data to the system – and all of this data needs to be analysed for management reports.
“When Brandspace decided to update its online booking system in order to maintain its leading position in the market, it asked LSS to develop a web based application with a number of levels of user interaction,” he said.
Completing the project in some seven months, LSS developed an application that allows customers and staff to book promotional spaces and follow a pre-exhibition procedure relating to legislative and internal systems documentation. Brandspace managers can now use the system to report on a number of processes – from bottom line sales to tentative bookings.
In addition to writing the application, LSS migrated data from multiple sources into a unified data store. This means that the application works from a single platform and this, in turn, offers various economies of scale which are reflected in improved efficiency.
Andrew Keiller, Brandspace’s Sales Director, commented: “Our new online booking system, built for us by LSS, will be an asset to the company.”
His colleague, Yolanda Lloyd, Operations Manager of Brandspace, added: “LSS took a highly active role in understanding what we needed. They have implemented something that has surpassed my best expectations – making a pleasant experience out of what could have been a stressful situation.”
