Branson Getaways is a marketing company that sells vacation packages to Branson at a discounted rate. The discount for these packages are contingent on the completion of a sales presentation at one of the resorts we are affiliated with. I worked in the corporate office tracking the progress of these packages from booking the packages to customer service. I also worked in their OPC Office (Off Property Contact). In this office I had more of a time sensitive role. These packages are booked when people are already in town, so reservations and scheduling sales presentations are more immediate.
