During slower periods of the year, the Lady Express provides a nice day trip of just 6 hours
including the layover in Stehekin.
Areas served are Chelan, Field's Point, Stehekin, Lucerne (port of Holden Village),
and other flag stop points along Lake Chelan.
The transportation service offers a variety of launch points and destinations, and a variety of fees associated with bringing luggage or cargo associated with camping, hiking or hunting.
The Lake Chelan Boat Company turned to New Concepts Software, Inc. for a ticketing and point of sale solution based on their popular Tick-It! Trak Pro technology. Working closely with their staff, NCS deployed the Trak Pro system.
The simplicity and visual nature of the ticketing sales function made training the staff quick and easy.
Future possible improvements are Website Sales, and wireless barcode ticket validation using Mobile Devices and the Trak Pro Validation Module.
