Proxicom, Inc., a leading e-business consulting and development company delivering multi-channel solutions to Fortune 500 companies, has announced the completion of a significant engagement with Quikbook, an online reservation service offering quality hotel rooms at discounted prices, to redesign the company`s web site and call centre system.
Since the project`s implementation, Quikbook`s reservations over the Internet have gained a 50% share of the company`s bookings. In addition, the company`s RevMax.com site, where a participating hotel may fully update its Quikbook profile, inventory and pricing information, now serves more than 500 hotels across the United States.
In addition to the site redesign, Proxicom has also completed the full integration of Quikbook`s call centre system with the company`s new accounting system and marketing database. Currently, Proxicom is working with Quikbook to expand its service offerings beyond the U.S. In addition to these projects, Proxicom is providing post-production support to Quikbook`s call center and web applications.
Quikbook has been a Proxicom client since 1997. The Travel and Transportation practice, part of Proxicom`s Services Industries business unit, provides comprehensive, multi-platform business solutions for airlines, lodging, Internet-based travel services, travel agents and other travel related companies.
On 18th May, 2001, Dimension Data Holdings plc, an international network and e-commerce services company, announced that it has commenced a cash tender offer to purchase all of the outstanding shares of common stock of Proxicom, Inc. for $7.50 per share in cash.
