Many industries have changed their way of operating due to the surge of the Internet, determined to capture a larger percent of the economy on the Web. One of the most solid industries transformed by the Internet is Tourism, especially processes such as hotel lodging and flight booking. Even with so many advances, many entrepreneurs are not taking advantage of the benefits that the Internet represents for their businesses. This project is a cost-effective alternative for the small hotel and lodging industry in Puerto Rico. The project is based on developing a local repository that can be integrated into an industrial Global Distribution System. The program will increase local tourism by exposure and outreach to other countries through the Internet. The solution permits the system to grow without impacting operations, making it a cost-effective solution. This project is made possible by Service Oriented Architectures and the benefits these offer. Key Terms - Booking, GDS, Reservation, Reuse, SOA.
