The newly designed on line Resturant Booking Web site takes advantage of unique features within ASP.NET to create a more satisfying user experience. Visitors will no longer receive blank search pages, because the integration between the Web site's interface and its databases is so much tighter. And productive searches will lead to better conversion rates. Wood says: "Rebuilding the on line Resturant Booking Web site using Microsoft ASP.NET has the potential to increase our revenues massively." Using a more flexible coding system also means that the company can realise its ambitions for domestic and international expansion, because it's quicker to implement new features and there are a greater number of developers available with the right skills.

• Customers get a personal, satisfying experience on the Web site, which means they're more likely to find what they are looking for and make a booking. Wood expects that this will lead to higher conversion rates and significantly increase the company's earnings.
• Users in several countries will see a version of the on line Resturant Booking Web site in their local language. The company plans to build domestic audiences in these countries, creating a global business.
• Customers experience little or no downtime due to the robust technologies used in the latest version of the Web site.
• Developers working with the ASP.NET version of the Web site can easily add new features such as mobile device extensions, because they're using familiar Microsoft development environments.
