We have very exciting news to share!
Marker InfoComm is celebrating its 30-year anniversary!
Since 1987, Marker has been providing the very best in loyalty software that connect hotels to airlines all over the globe. We are quite proud of this incredible milestone and we are grateful to our clients who trusted in us to help build their loyalty base, increase their revenue and foster repeat customers. Our success story would not exist without the continued support of our clients. Not only have they made us a part of their culture, but have also helped us reach out to the world. They spread the word faster and in a better way than any of our promotional means could.
Our President and CEO, Kirk Stephens, was an executive with American Airlines "back in the day".... when American had a clever marketing idea. "Let's offer miles to our passengers that they can save and redeem for a free flight... and let's run the program for 6 months." It was May of 1981 and it was a great plan! So great, in fact, that TWA, United Airlines and Delta Airlines started their own loyalty programs within that 6 month period and the Frequent Flyer Mileage Industry was born.
Growth in the new airline loyalty business was so fast that Kirk opted to leave American Airlines in 1987 and start his own company - and one of his first clients was none other than American Airlines. Marker took American's rudimentary data processing platform called AAIM and upgraded it to an online environment back in a time when magnetic card readers and tapes were the data processing norm. The software that Marker developed for American grew into a very robust system called AAPOS which was the basis for the processing platform American used for many years thereafter.
Marker has since gone on to create the iHAMMS (International Hotel Airline Mileage Management System) software designed specifically for hotels to manage their frequent flyer programs. Today the iHAMMS software connects over 3,000 hotels with over 50 airlines worldwide.
To say Marker has been there since the beginning is an understatement. Let our experienced staff help you manage your FFP data processing needs and build you something unique, or use our off-the-shelf solutions. No matter the size of your group - large or small - Marker has a solution for you!
