Press release date: 03/15/04: FOR INFO: call Suzanne Hills Tucker- 808-575-5282
Maui based Activity Link, LLC, Hawaii’s largest activity software developer, announced today that they will begin offering new software this month that will allow operators of activity companies to display their tour availability to selected activity desks, online. This new software will enable users to cut in half their numerous phone calls, saving time and money while providing better service for our visitors.
The activity business has grown tremendously over the past two decades and Activity Link, LLC has grown along side the industry, supporting the processing of thousands of transactions daily by hundreds of activity desk and vendor users. They provide custom designed software and 24/7 system support for everything from reservation and billing systems to guest vouchers and accounting systems.
Tim Moore of Old Lahaina Luau said “Activity Link has always impressed us with their high level of professionalism and expertise and have helped our business dramatically over the years. With this new system it will be much easier for us to handle the large volume of calls we get every day from the desks and travel agents that want to book their clients with us.”
Tom Barefoot, owner of Barefoot Tours, an activity desk that has been booking activities on Maui for almost thirty years said, “Our Company has enjoyed the benefits of much needed organization in our computer and booking systems since we converted to Activity Link’s software. We have been very pleased with the level of service the company provides and we look forward to learning more about this new interactive software.”
Dave Castles, Director of Sales and Marketing for Maui Dive Shop, a business that is both an activity provider with four boats and an activity agency with nine island-wide locations, said “We are excited about this new software and expect it will streamline our search process, allowing us to serve our customers more efficiently.”
Kumar Manuel, founder of Activity Link, first designed software for Maui Downhill in 1985 and has been adding to his impressive client list ever since. Together he and his partner, Rob Rietow, have installed and supported systems for over 100 clients from New York to Hawaii and their software currently processes over 70% of all activity vouchers issued on the Island of Maui alone. Among their clients are Activity World, Maui Dive Shop, Old Lahaina Luau, Trilogy Excursions, Blue Hawaiian Helicopters, Barefoot Tours, the Grand Wailea Resort and the Hyatt Regency Maui.
“We are very excited about our introduction of this new interfacing software!” noted Manuel, “Getting to this point has been an intensive process because we wanted to develop a system that could be tailored to each business according to their specific needs. This system will allow for activity vendors to optionally display their tour availability online according to their various business relationships with select companies and activity desks.”
“Our business is based on serving the software needs of our clients and with the rapid growth of their industry and the growth of technology, this software was a natural evolution and reflects our commitment to give the tools to our clients to stay ahead of the curve!” You can find more information on Activity Link by going to their web site at www.activitylinksystems.com
