Time flies when you’re having fun! It also flies when you’re busy building the world’s leading onboard retail management platform!
As we move into this new year, we’re happy to say that we have reached a big milestone with Vector – our proprietary software suite has turned 10 years old!
Of course, the Vector of today is quite different from 10 years ago. Even in the early days, our goal was to solve problems for our customers. In fact, we developed the initial features of the Vector software as a custom solution for one of our clients.
Although it was originally estimated to take 30 hours to create, we now have more than a hundred people working full time to provide cutting-edge onboard retail management solutions for more than 40 airlines across the globe.
Vector has grown from its early days as an ePOS / database solution, into an end-to-end software suite which evolves and improves daily. Vector now has the capability to manage each segment of the onboard retail process, from warehouse and inventory management to onboard sales and tax reconciliation.
What other things were introduced around the same time as Vector, you ask? Well, when Vector was introduced, you may very well have been listening to Sara Bareilles sing about writing a Love Song, while playing on your new iPhone 3G and watching Britney’s breakdown on TV – just to name a few.
It’s been a wild ride for the world (and for Retail inMotion) since then!
Happy birthday, Vector!
