According to a recent survey, more than 50% of all web users will browse from mobile devices by 2014. Innkeepers must optimize their website for mobile devices like iPhones®, iPads® and Android® phones, or risk getting left behind.
Everyone knows that a hotel website is essential to promote a hotel. Until recently, websites were primarily viewed through a fixed internet connection from desktop computers or laptops. Things have changed, and guests are now using their mobile phones and devices such as the Apple iPad to surf the web and research travel options. Mobile internet usage is exploding and it is projected that more people will browse websites from mobile devices than from fixed internet connections by as early as 2014. Modern websites need to be built with mobile devices in mind. As a hotel owner or operator, you want your guests to have access to information about your property and be able to make a reservation regardless of the device they are using.
With buuteeq, your guests will see a great looking, easy to navigate website on any mobile device. When guests browse your website from any mobile phone they will see a simplified, faster loading version of your site that delivers all the same information as your full site. This is necessary because older 'feature phones' have much smaller screens and lack touch-screen navigation. On Smartphones and tablets such as the iPhone, iPad and Google Android phones, guests can choose to view your full website which will load correctly and be fully functional. Additionally, buuteeq can create a dedicated iPhone app with your hotel's name and brand that appears in the Apple iTunes app store. This application can then be installed on the nearly 100m Apple iOS devices (iPhones, iPods, and iPads) so that your guests can plan their stay and share their experience with their friends.
Traditionally, building and managing a mobile optimized version of your website would be a separate design and development cost; but with buuteeq, mobile is always a first class citizen, assuring that more guests will see your hotel and make a decision to stay with you. When it comes to reaching your guests on their mobile phones, buuteeq has you covered.
