Worldspan for Windows 4.1s
Worldspan for Windows has been customized for dial-in users on user-owned equipment. These customers have access to the same Windows functionality as customers with dedicated access, including scripts and Ready Keys. Dial-in users can also take advantage of reservations productivity tools, such as Power Pricing, Power Shopper, Worldspan Tour Source and Cruise Line Source. All that's required for this high-powered, low-cost dial-in product is a PC and modem, a standard telephone line, and the Worldspan for Windows 4.1s software.
