Dunkin' Runs on Innovation

3/10/2008
As buzz words go, "innovation," has racked up serious mileage in the information technology industry. The word appears on nearly every industry conference agenda in 2008 (HT owns up to its share) and continues to be a prime directive for many top IT leaders.

Town & Country Resort Streamlines Group Reservation Process

3/10/2008
Town & Country Resort & Convention Center, owned by Atlas Hotels and located in San Diego, is the largest privately-owned convention and meeting hotel on the West Coast.
