Task 2 With the information system, the agency is able to communicate to the customers, hotels and the airline computers. The reports can keep the business effective because it gives statistics about: where people travelled, where they stayed, how many people, for how long, who they travelled with and how much money they spent. The enterprise can analyse the customers behaviour, amount spent on each journey, It is important to plan the future supply and demand, hence the company can see in which direction it has to expand the service.
