Tour Operator reservations software orders dry up

I hear that one of the UK’s largest providers of reservations systems and software has suspended taking orders. This will allow them, so the story goes, to complete an installation for a large US client that is business critical.

It is not a big issue, as there are no orders coming from UK customers anyway!!!!!

May I suggest that software application developers in the Travel sector consider moving to Cloud solutions so that they can begin to offer customers prices on a per user basis. This , I believe, will entice customers back into the market. Many tour operators and travel agents are running expensive servers and need urgently to decrease I.T. costs while improving business efficiency.
