Vehicle Reservations Portal for Automotive Industry

Gordon Associates has recently completed a web portal for a major service company in the automotive sector. The portal captures reservations for vehicle demonstrations from dealers & car fleet managers and provides functions for defining vehicle details & pictures, demonstrator bookings with related details, email confirmations, utlisation reporting, integration with internal business systems and mobile device access. The portal will deliver faster turnaround of bookings and greater visibility for clients with improved reporting capabilities.

Software Development Conference At Microsoft UK

Gordon Associates is proud to announce the successful delivery of a user group seminar last month, which took place at Microsoft's Thames Valley Park offices in Reading. The conference which attracted over 50 attendees was chaired by Rod Gordon and featured an overview of application development at Babcock Engineering, an NHS case study, a session covering integration with finance systems and a discussion on architectural options for web applications. Gordon Associates regularly organises conferences such as these as part of our ongoing professional development policy. The next conference will take place in May and is likely to feature a member of Microsoft's Office development team who will be travelling over from Seattle - he mainly wants to come over for the beer!
