Bookassist touchscreen system to launch at Dublin Airport

By Des O'Mahony | On Wed, August 18, 2004

Bookassist is the exclusive supplier of the touchscreen booking technology and reservations content for Dublin Tourism’s new touchscreen information services at Dublin Airport.

Bookassist will make extensive use of its last-minute booking capability to allow arriving passengers to book from a range of accommodation, both in Dublin and throughout Ireland, for arrival up to midnight on the booking date. According to Kieran Fives, Bookassist Co-Founder and Director, “the system incorporates a number of industry-first features such as SMS text confirmation of bookings for touchscreen users and travel directions delivered directly to the user’s phone. Touchscreen users making last minute bookings wouldn’t usually be able to print their confirmation details, so the SMS capability is a significant advantage of the Bookassist system”.
