A recent survey by Cap Gemini America Ernst & Young projects that the number of U.S. Internet users using cell phones for wireless-data applications will increase from 3% this year to 78% by the end of 2002.
Additionally, according to the ARC Group, about one billion people will use wireless data services by 2005.
Now, through mobile infrastructure software developed by San Francisco-based Brience Inc., wireless access to the Wyndham Hotels group site to book reservations using secured web browsers, or to access the Wyndham ByRequest Web site, is available without the hassle of downloading software or clipping applications.
To implement the service quickly, seamlessly and cost-effectively, Brience maximised Wyndham`s existing technology infrastructure investment, including previous upgrades to its property management systems, reservation system and web technology, by making Web content and business applications accessible to travellers using any one of more than 250 wireless devices to access information.
Through the Brience mobile infrastructure software platform, Wyndham travellers using wireless devices receive personalised information.
