Almost all businesses of any size use computerized reservation systems. There are many reasons for this.

Many businesses have multiple locations. A computerized system lets people from one location easily make a reservation from another.

Customers can also make reservations directly on the Internet through a web page, reducing the need for employees.

Computers also have the advantage of updating data quickly so reservation changes can be made quickly and easily. You can also summarize data to see how many spots you have left. You can also analyze past data to see where you are being most efficient and where you may be losing money, or can at least maximize profit.

All of the above things could be done by hand, but they would take much longer to do and would be much more expensive, to the point where it might not even be worth doing some of them.

I hope this helps!
