The American Economic Association (AEA) has recently entered into a multi-year agreement with Convention Management Resources (CMR) as their new provider of housing management services for their Allied Social Sciences Associations (ASSA) Annual Meeting.
Key to winning the bid was the ability to handle an unusually high demand for hotel reservations in a short amount of time – 3,000 completed reservations within the first ten minutes of housing opening. Our development team refined the proprietary housing application to accommodate this heavy load. New developments include faster database processing to enhance mobile interactions and a custom-branded ‘waiting room’ that proactively troubleshoots system errors without interrupting a user’s site session.
Our initial testing resulted in over 8,000 reservations made within a ten-minute window, far surpassing the 3,000 required. A responsive operations team and an experienced development team came together to advance a best-in-breed housing management application. We are proud to welcome AEA to our family of clients.
