RESERVATION SOFTWARE Group Demonstrations:  When viewing a system demo, it can often feel overwhelming.  It can be helpful to have others raising a question or clarification you didn’t even think to ask as you process other information you were just shown.  Use the group to help you make an informed decision whether to try out a new reservation system, simply scope out a possible future system, or if you already have one of the following systems; learn about new, updated, or existing features you may not be fully utilizing.
