buuteeq is a family enterprise. Our founders have known each other since high school, and our CEO’s brother Roberto, is working in the sales team. The inn and B&B industry is often full of family as well. A good example of this is the two properties that recently joined buuteeq.
Bob and Marty are the owners of the Shore House at Lake Tahoe and their son Jake is the manager of the Palm Springs Rendezvous in Southern California. Websites for both properties are excellent examples of just what the buuteeq system can do.
Hotel Web Design at The Palm Spring Rendezvous
Jake, the manager of the Palm Springs Rendezvous, has used buuteeq’s hotel web design to produce a website that perfectly captures the feel of his property. The snazzy colors and background image provide guests with a user experience that perfectly encapsulates the throwback appeal of his property.
Jake fully renovated the Palm Springs Rendezvous when he took it over, and with buuteeq he has been able to express the same degree of artistic creativity in his website. He says that “the clean look is almost impossible to muddy up by adding things to it. The more you add, as long as it is formatted, the better everything looks. I really love that as I always have new ideas floating in my head.”
More than that, he has been able to test and retest all of his ideas. He says “I am not a programmer but I like to be in control of my information. On my old website I could edit bits and pieces but never the whole thing. buuteeq allows me full access to change anything and everything at a drop of a hat and do it quickly and easily. I can try something for a few days and switch back to a previous version if my idea doesn’t work.” With buuteeq there is never the issue of coordinating, and paying for, changes done by a webmaster.
All this has been cheap, too. Jakes says that “the relative cost of the website allowed us to upgrade both our properties to a state of the art website without the $10-15,000 out of pocket expense of the last time we custom built a website. I now can change anything any time I like and the backend will continue to evolve with what is new and important in the internet and hospitality world.”
