New Data & Filtering Options Enable Travelers to Search for Hotels Based on Guest Reviews
Dallas, Texas and Munich, Germany - April 4, 2014 TrustYou, the market leader in online reputation management for the hospitality and travel industry, has just launched a collaborative effort with JackRabbit Systems, Inc., one of the top choices for developing custom travel booking search and direct referral engines (Book Direct) for City, County, State, Provincial and National Destination Marketing Organizations (DMOs) across North America and the Caribbean. This partnership provides search with aggregated global user reviews and sentiment analysis, providing destinations and travel portals with the most current end user-generated data. DMOs will benefit from this newly formed relationship as their site visitors are evaluating and deciding on hotels in that it has now become streamlined with the addition of this user-generated content weighing into the equation.
"Using TrustYou's data and widgets that display global review scores and sentiments, derived from over 250 sites worldwide, in a simple-to-read format, means that JackRabbit's Book Direct engines will be more customizable for travelers so that they can make the right choice when booking a hotel," said Tom Rickert, EVP at JackRabbit.
TrustYou aggregates travelers' reviews and sentiments across a vast field of over 250 websites in nearly two dozen languages and delivers them into one simple score, the TrustScore. This score, which weighs the hotel's most notable attributes and opportunities, or "tops and flops," is based on a scale out of 100 and displays review highlights next to every hotel across JackRabbit's Book Direct network of 250+ DMO websites. Filtering options, including types of hotel (business, family-friendly, etc.) and other semantic categories (location, food, Internet, cleanliness) are also available.
"We want travelers to be able to choose the best hotel for their needs when booking. With the addition of TrustYou's widgets into JackRabbit Book Direct's solution, travelers can look for the features that matter most to them, according to all guest reviews worldwide," said Alan Young, SVP of Marketing and Strategic Partnerships at TrustYou.
