DB Autozug (DBA) is a part of the National German Railway Company DB Autobahn and operates night train services throughout Germany and adjacent European countries. DBA wished to provide an Internet booking service for their direct customers and following initial meetings at ITB Berlin in 2003 decided in September 2003 on WebRes for Trains.
The DBA implementation required a number of extensions to the WebRes inventory management to provide the facility to change the number of berths in a cabin dependant on the number of occupants booking. Configuration and testing was completed during November 2003 and the system became operational early December 2003.
