The explosion of the mobile and tablet channels presented a major challenge to hotel marketers: creating and managing digital content throughout three distinct distribution channels – desktop, mobile and tablet – as well as publishing the hotel’s latest special offers and promotions on the hotel’s various social media profiles.

It also serves as a centralized digital content depository, conveniently corralling all the resources on which hoteliers rely in one easy-to-access location.
The CMS Premium is the most advanced CMS in the hospitality industry today. Notable features include:
  • Innovative architecture facilitating fast download speeds
  • Full compliance with the Google Panda and Freshness SEO updates
  • Ability to change the look-and-feel design of the hotel website with a click of a button
  • Dynamic content personalization
  • A suite of reservation conversion features
  • Support of responsive design on the server side (RESS)
"Winning this prestigious award is a testament to HeBS Digital’s ingenuity. I am immensely proud of HeBS Digital's team of programmers, developers and designers who worked together to develop the industry’s leading CMS technology,” said Max Starkov, President & CEO of HeBS Digital.
