Meet VIBE: The Versatile Internet Booking Engine

InnPoints Worldwide’s New Booking Engine Provides Limitless
Customization through JSON Interface



ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — OCTOBER 19, 2009— InnPoints Worldwide, provider of reservation marketing and technology solutions for independent hotels, today announced the launch of its new internet booking technology, VIBE. The Versatile Internet Booking Engine is InnPoints’ latest reservation solution, designed to provide an integrated and interactive consumer reservation experience. 

VIBE utilizes JSON, an interface much like XML that allows for communication of data between programming languages. The interface allows for complete customization to the booking engine’s look, feel, layout and modules. VIBE provides limitless customization for its hotels in order to create a seamless booking experience and increase conversion rates. VIBE is also one of the fastest internet booking engines in the industry, loading rooms, rates and images in seconds.

VIBE’s first hotel user, the Glenmore Inn & Conference Center in Calgary, Alberta, was able to design its own customized booking engine alongside InnPoints’ Integrated Web Services experts. Instead of selecting a template, the Glenmore Inn improved upon components of several of its competitors’ booking engines, creating the optimal layout and design for its guests. 

“The opportunity to design our own website booking engine was rare,” said Mike Sprake, Director of Sales & Marketing at the Glenmore Inn.  “It was like designing our own custom website without having to abide by any rules or pick from any pre-defined layouts.”

The VIBE internet booking engine, which is powered by InnPoints’ central reservation system MyCRS, is currently available to any hotel. For more information, please view the vibe demo at: www.innpointsworldwide.com
