AMR Airline Automation (A Subsidiary of AMR, now SABRE) purchased the old Cowboy system to market it to small carriers as a part of a new business venture. It was renamed SAAS. They also marketed SABRE to other carriers. Southwest was one of the first users. Others included (at some point) L'express, Great Lakes, AeroSur, etc. I think the software now resides on the SABRE mainframe in TUL but is separate functionality. AMR also hired alot of the former Cowboy programmers and analysts. They were great people!
