Blue Square Studios Partners with Specialized Providers to
Enrich Hospitality Toolkit with Destination Content, Spa
Booking Engine and On-line F&B Service
Scottsdale AZ (June 7, 2005) -- Blue Square Studios, whose Hospitality Toolkit (formerly Hotel Site Toolkit) is the hospitality e-commerce enabler of choice, announces partnerships with several innovative hospitality technology companies whose products expand the possibilities afforded by Blue Square's Toolkit. 
  • “10Best” Destination Guides has agreed to distribution rights that allow Blue Square Studios to integrate its premium destination content into customized websites for hotels. 10Best conducts extensive research and on-site evaluations to determine the best hotels, restaurants, sites and events in countless cities around the globe. The agreement gives Hospitality Toolkit the right to easily and cost-effectively create unique, branded destination information for hospitality clients that allows their guests to plan trips and book reservations around local events and attractions.
  • Nirvana Technology of Alpharetta GA has partnered with Blue Square Studios to offer a unique product for its Resort and Day Spa clients. Nirvana’s BookNow! hosted solution offers a dynamic online activity booking service for hotel company and hotel websites. Nirvana hosts a world-class on-demand activities service that enables prospective guests to self-book resort activities and services from anywhere in the world. The booking engine automates the process of appointment scheduling for the spa as well as most other resort activity centers racquet sports, individual\group instruct, classes, group tours, child care and multi-session seminars. 
  • e-Touch, the premier provider of interactive food and beverage services with seamless integration into multiple point-of-sale systems, has partnered with Blue Square Studios to power a web-based, room service capability for hotel clients. Thanks to the careful design of its architecture, the e-Touch system is easily adapted to a range of existing interactive technology on-property: check-in kiosks, in-room touchscreens, in-room web access and interactive television. Blue Square Studios plans to enhance the e-Touch capability by packaging the technology with the Hospitality Toolkit to allow hotels to incorporate their own property, restaurant and room service content and promotions. 
All three enhancements will be included in Blue Square Studios' presentations to current and prospective hospitality clients at HITEC, where they exhibit in Booth # 1227.

“We are known for doing great work and making e-commerce affordable and simple for even the novice hotelier,” said Shane Ettestad, President & CEO of Blue Square Studios, “But we also develop dynamic custom sites that incorporate services that better serve the guest while creating new revenue opportunities for our hospitality clients. 10 Best, Finding Nirvana and e-Touch are great examples of our chosen partners: companies who have defined their respective niches with products that, when integrated, turbo-charge the Hospitality Toolkit.”
