ORLANDO, Fla. (May 6, 2013) — A well-known innovator in the timeshare industry, Wyndham Vacation Ownership (WVO), the world’s largest vacation ownership company and a member of the Wyndham Worldwide family of companies (NYSE:WYN), is revolutionizing its sales practices by providing every member of its sales force a comprehensive sales tool center on an iPad platform.
By deploying more than 3,000 Apple iPads as dedicated sales tools, WVO can provide every sales associate from Hawaii to Vermont with the most up-to-date, consistent and accurate sales information and training, all while reducing the company’s environmental footprint. This is the latest addition to an already robust sales program, featuring the Specialist Presenter Program and hyperscreen technology.

Consistently ranked as an employer of choice in the markets it serves, WVO is further showcasing its commitment to its sales force by tapping into iPad technology, making it an attractive place to work and grow.
“By bringing the depth of our resources to the fingertips of our sales force, we can be responsive to the needs of the consumer,” said Maria Margenot, senior vice president of sales development, recruiting and training for WVO. “This capability enhances our position as a leading hospitality company, drawing a top field of sales professionals. This talent pool gleans us the best of the best, further supporting our commitment to not only our owners and guests, but our valued associates.”
