There's a big difference between the two. The unemployment system is designed to make it as hard as possible to get unemployment benefits and to give you as little as possible when you do. Failure is actually success. The camping reservation system is just new, at least to Florida.
I seriously doubt the state of Florida wrote their own reservation system. It seems to me that ReserveAmerica now has competition. I do wish the same happened to TicketMaster.
There are two kinds of IT system conversions: painful, and failures. It looks like Florida's is simply painful, and not very painful for the consumer, from what I can tell. Give the employees time to learn the new system and fix the issues that resulted and it will run smoothly.
The only thing I regret about the change is that I have yet another web site to log into to find my existing reservations. While ReserveAmerica is probably charging their customers too much, which is why they have competition, it's easy for me because it's all in one place.
