When the Riverscape team began working with e-Travel, it was a startup company of five people, with an office in the attic of the Concord, Massachusetts train station. A few years later, e-Travel had been acquired by Oracle, and was celebrated in the travel industry as the first developer of a web-based solution for corporate travel, providing business travellers with the ability to self-book flights, hotels, and rental cars, while complying with corporate travel policy. The system interfaced to the SABRE, Worldspan, Apollo, and Amadeus reservation systems. Brian Mottershead and Cindy Mottershead were responsible for engineering all aspects of the product, except for the first version of the database and the interface to the reservation systems. Later, Riverscape redesigned and reimplemented those as well, for greater performance. e-Travel is now part of Amadeus.
