of the Navy) Agree On a Lodging Reservation
System "Pilot" Program
|JACKSONVILLE, FL - February 21, 2005 - SECURE-RES
announced today the signing of a Letter of Agreement as a service provider
for a pilot project for the Navy Lodge Program.
SECURE-RES, who provides internet marketing and reservation services to hoteliers and property managers, has agreed to pilot an overflow reservation system for the Navy Lodge Program Call Center in Jacksonville, FL. The Navy Lodge Program provides lodging for military personnel, their families and other authorized patrons. SECURE-RES will provide the Navy Lodge Program a web-based reservation application of available hotels. This will be used by the Navy Lodge Call Center during their booked periods. The goal of SECURE-RES is to provide support for the Navy Lodge and allow military personnel to book rates 10% below per diem.
The initial phase of the program will be the deployment of the call center application to support the operation. The 24/7- Navy Lodge Call Center handled over 425,000 calls this year and has received over 2 million visitors in the last nine months to their web site. Plans are to accommodate more in the future.
"We're excited and pleased to be part of this important pilot program," said Joe Hyman, President and CEO of SECURE-RES. "It's a great opportunity to showcase our voice reservation software system. We appreciate the opportunity to work with this government entity."
Jerry Harvin, Manager, Navy Lodge Worldwide Central Reservation Center, agrees, "This program fills an important need in servicing our traveler. The Navy Lodge Call Center will book travel arrangements hassle-free through the SECURE-RES system when on-site Navy Lodging is sold out."
"The pilot program provided by SECURE-RES," said Harvin, "saves the government money and provides an additional level of service to the Navy Lodge traveler."
