Four things I have learned since Tres
What I Have Learned So Far
Trams’ customers have told me they are excited to have a new product and ready to make a move.
- Industry is more tech advanced than when I left. People get the benefits of “Cloud-Based” including ease of access, way easier support, increased integration abilities and more. When I talk about using an API to access live reservation data across participating members centrally, people understand, and both get and want it now.
- Business is SO much more efficient and better these days. When I started Trams, we paid $14,000 a month for rent, another $110 per person for parking as we all commuted, paid for desks, computers for everyone, had a dedicated technician to support our local server; and to top it off paid $30,000 for a copy machine! With Tres every day I “see” my team and we are more connected than when in the same office. With technology advancements with products like MS Teams is so cool and efficient as we share data, files, and systems. Our hosting fees for users is so much more efficient than options available in the past.
- When I started Tres, we used that name for two reasons: t it stands for “Travel Enterprise Systems” referring to the Cloud-Based aspect and the benefits of being Cloud-Based. We also used the name for another reason. The original Trams DOS version as version 1, the windows version from 1995 as version 2; and the word “Tres” is Spanish for the number 3. As we have progressed with the development of Tres, I have learned that it is not a re-creation or new, technically updated version. Tres is a new creation. Not only has technology changed, but so has travel and even society. Without being stuck in the historical development path Trams followed, Tres is free to start fresh and anew and do things right way for today’s Travel Advisors.
