Ultimate Booking Experience: Odds are you know our work very well. We are focused on deploying our latest engine, we call it TUBE (The Ultimate Booking Experience), that we feel will be as industry changing as some of our past work.  This new reservation application allows hotels to showcase their property like never before with multiple images and video.  So now a potential guest can see and hear all about your hotel.  You can view a demo for both TUBE and our standard HTML booking engines: Click here.

Windsurfer CRS: A central reservations system built from experience. Aside from key business rule management features, we built in an advanced reservation process email delivery platform that allows you to customize content in your hotel’s reservation emails based on conditions you set up. It’s no longer viable to just try and get heads in beds. You must pursue every opportunity to convert from all of your distribution touch points: Reservation processing, loyalty program sign-ups, sales of additional products or services, or getting consumer feedback… Conversion is key at every stage. We build the tools hotels and hotel chains need in order to maximize that conversion opportunity.

Mobile Internet Booking Engine: We have also addressed this emerging channel.  A well-designed and user-friendly mobile version of our booking engine is also available.  We take advantage of what the new smart phones have to offer and transfer the rich visual experience from the browser version over to the mobile environment. According to comScore, the number of mobile web users doubled in the United States from January 2008 to January 2009. About 22.37 million people in the U.S. used their mobile devices to access the Internet on a daily basis. This is a global trend and a segment you cannot afford to ignore.. You can see our Mobile IBE if you Click here from your mobile device (iPhone, Android, or Palm Pre).

Contact us. We want to introduce you to our suite of conversion-oriented apps and services.
