'Your booking engine should be making your life easier; not harder', by Marc

The market for online booking engines is heavily saturated with solutions varying from a simple booking button to fully-featured software suites that integrate the entire process from your website to your in-house reservation system.

Not to mention the tedious manuals and in-house training you will invariably need to navigate once you have signed up.
