The buuteeq team is growing every single day, which is great. There is a downside, though. Today we don’t all get to opportunity to watch every single customer move through production like used to. But we are still able to admire each new website as soon as it goes live.
I was aware my existing site was aging and I did not have the thousands of dollars to build a new site. – Michael, owner
One of our most recent customers is The Fox Hollow Bed and Breakfast in Bozeman, MT. Michael and Nancy, the owners, got their buuteeq site live on Thanksgiving Day. When I pulled it up on Monday morning I was blown away. Montana has some spectacular scenery, but I’ve never seen it captured in such a tangible way as it is on their website.
Michael and Nancy first heard about buuteq through the glowing reviews on the Professional Association of Innkeepers International forum.
Michael said he knew their current InsideOut site was out of aging, but he didn’t want to spend the thousands of dollars it would have cost to build a new one (plus, this would just buy them a site that would be out of date in a few short years anyway- read about how Flash technology is going extinct). buuteeq’s pricing worked for Michael because he got an industry leading website without the high up-front costs. After doing a lot of research on other buuteeq customers, and liking what he saw, he and Nancy decided to come on board.
The great thing about the Fox Hollow’s website is that it takes full advantage of buuteeq’s hotel web design offering. The great background sets the tone and feel of their property, and conveys to potential guests the feeling of their Bed and Breakfast. The pictures, content and design were all chosen by the Michael and Nancy, and can be changed by them at any time through buuteeq’s intuitive hotel Content Management System. The great thing about this is that it allows them to update their site by themselves, with ease, at any time, for free.
The Fox Hollow now also has a great mobile hotel website, something they didn’t have before. As more and more reservations are being made through mobile phones, this is one of the most important elements of their new buuteeq service.
Michael takes an active role in the hospitality industry in Montana. He runs the Montana Bed and Breakfast Association website as well as his own. Since his new buuteeq website has launched, he’s been contacted by a number of fellow members asking about buuteeq. It’s our goal that our product speaks for itself, and as Michael and Nancy bring in more guests, it’s sure that buuteeq will be a permanent fixture in the Montana tourism business.
Read a few more of the nice things Michael said about buuteeq.
The folks I have talked with at buuteeq have been very pleasant and prompt to work out some of my ideas.
There were a few items I wanted. The BackOffice is pretty intuitive.
The mobile site is a nice bonus.
My wife likes it. Now that’s really important.- Michael, owner of the Fox Hollow Bed and Breakfast in Bozeman, MT
