CruiseControl Travel Management System and IT deployment

CruiseControl commissioned a database mangement system to combine multiple classic ASP web apps into a single solution capable of analysing data together.

Combining package holiday and cruise products with live Flight data feeds coming directly into the system, a sales team of over 50 used our a seemless approach to selling package holidays.

Initially built as a back-end extension to an already complex in-house system - the new solution was trialled as a data management suite to quickly manipulate and extend the features.

CruiseControl's CruiseMatch was the first commercial prototype of my DreamServer One development process to be used by a full team of developers built on Classic ASP and SQL Server 7.0

As CruiseMatch was approaching final release, the in-house IT team transformed the Romford office from an ad-hoc setup to a fully cabled & managed business suite.  With 3 large offices across 2 floors, the team built custom workstations, installed a modern fully managed switched network, over 70 new PC terminals and a whole new server room, with full UPS and failover systems, along with new phone systems and combined internet leased lines for super-fast connectivity.

The investments CruiseControl made into their business transformed them from a small travel agent to a much larger UK wide operation, with turnover sky-rocketing.

CruiseControl was the second deployment of a unique development process - DreamServer One and it scaled to over 50 office based users.  No more difficult to maintain installs or complex upgrades, this system was browser based and delivered from a simple web server.  As the business later migrated to home workers, this system was already prepared for it.

Affinity Airlines Popup Business Suite

With a major opportunity arising for a new popup Airline - CruiseControl commissioned an "emergency business starter kit".

This system had everything the staff needed to sell flights and manage customer orders.  It was simple, fast and had no design work - we used standard templates that everyone knew would work.

Using the foundations of CruseMatch using code from DreamServer One, we built this in less than 3 weeks.  The business was running and generating a profit within a month of being started.
