Advantage Co. members supported a move towards change but expressed mixed feelings about a new telephone account management system. Darren Phillips, owner of Darren Phillips Travel says telephone account management a bit impersonal but he don't think Advantage needs to tell them about the restructure until it is all sorted out.
