 Lodging Interactive Offers Turn-Key Mobile Websites For Hotels


PARSIPPANY, NJ , November 16, 2009 - Lodging Interactive, a leading interactive marketing agency servicing the hospitality industry, today announced the roll out of its mobile website design and hosting services for hotels. Lodging Interactive's new mobile services provide turn-key, cost-effective mobile solutions enabling hotels to provide easy acess to their website and to capture bookings from smart phones, iPhones and Blackberry users worldwide.

"According to PhocusWright, 67% of travelers and 77% of frequent business travelers with Web-enabled mobile devices have already used their devices to find local services, (e.g. lodging) and attractions," stated DJ Vallauri, Lodging Interactive's Founder and President. "And with US mobile penetration expected to be 95%, or 219 Million users in 2010, it only makes sense that hotels embrace the emerging mobile technologies to maximize their mobile booking opportunities."


Lodging Interactive creates mobile websites specifically designed for mobile foot prints. Typical mobile websites contain 15-20 pages including animated photo galleries, one click direct dial to the hotel and links to popular social media sites such as Facebook and Twitter. Additionally, the company utilizes special coding to automatically detect and redirect visitors using Apple iPhones and Blackberry devices. "Our technology can detect which cell phone platform and browser the visitor is using and display the most appropriate website rendering, all seamlessly to the user," added Mr. Vallauri.

As an option, Lodging Interactive offers a customized Mobile Content Management System (M-CMS) enabling hotel clients to easily modify their mobile website in real time.

Mobile Websites For Branded Properties

"Our mobile website services are especially well suited for branded properties who may not have their own marketing websites. The brands are simply not addressing the global mobile opportunities for its individual franchisees," said Mr. Vallauri. "We have been able to create a business model that makes establishing a mobile website and marketing it affordable to any franchisee."
