Ever since Hurricanes Frances and Jean, visitors to Freeport have fallen off. To boost the numbers again, the Ministry of Tourism has come up with the concept of an island-wide all inclusive vacation. This will be tested next month on Grand Bahama.
It pleases me to report that our company was chosen to electronically process the transactions that enable the concept, and that I architected and wrote much of the code to do so.
Freeport is one of my favourite places anyway. I spent a fair amount of time there in my youth, and it feels good to be doing something good for the place.
