Software-as-a-Service Booking System Helps Santa ClausATLANTA, GA--(Marketwire - December 5, 2007) - What does Santa Claus do when he needs help managing phone calls to thousands of children all over the world? For Jim Pollard, the founder behind SantaSpeaks.com and a featured guest on "Oprah," "The Montel Show" and "Fox and Friends," the answer is Software-as-a-Service (SaaS).
SantaSpeaks.com provides live calls from Santa Claus until December 24th. Parents and grandparents or friends select the call date and time from a virtual booking calendar and provide personalization information such as name, birthday, favorite pets and Christmas presents and whether they have been naughty or nice. Children are absolutely thrilled when they receive the personal call from Santa.
Software-as-a-Service, the technical name for applications that run over the Internet, is seen by many as the future of software. With Internet applications, you avoid having to install and maintain the software. But there are other advantages such as speed-to-market and accessibility, online software lets you perform complex tasks, such as setting up a booking system or a business website in a few hours. Because it is Internet-based, it can be accessed from all Internet-enabled computers, including Macs, meaning that you are not tied to the computer in your office.
"We are excited that Santa is using Software-as-a-Service. It demonstrates just how powerful online services have become," says Martin Israelsen from WebReserv.com.
