The business needs a robust solution that can easily process such huge volumes and will integrate with our bespoke front-end travel system, incorporating the latest e-ticket technology. “Access Dimensions will provide us with an accurate, central reporting system to help automate processes and reduce the time taken to produce monthly Board packs. It will cut rekeying of information and duplication of effort, helping us to reconcile data between the finance and travel systems.”

Attraction World, which employs 45 staff, currently has a bespoke travel system which the in-house team will integrate with Access Dimensions. Longer term, the company will look to use Access’ Dashboard solution to manage and monitor KPI’s more effectively.
