Saahil Mehta, Co-Founder and Managing Director of Dubai based ResNet World, but now with a team in Australia, told me at the recent Maximum Occupancy Conference, that ResNet World was unique in offering accommodation operators the opportunity to harness the power of their hotel web site and better influence users’ purchasing decisions by integrating the booking process directly into their website’s accommodation and special offers pages.
Now, I can hear some of you saying we have that and I made the same comment, but Saahil told me that through there advanced booking process, clients were kept in the web site and booking engine and not handed off to a booking portal or other booking facility.
He added that ResNet World offers advanced booking engine website integration services that ensures a hotel website is the number one revenue producer for the hotel, through adding a ‘’book now’’ button to your website only a small part of the overall direct booking strategy.
He says that the sales process should start before that button is ever pressed, with the being turning lookers into bookers, by making sure that they have rate information available to them while researching a hotel and this includes direct links from the hotel’s home page to special packages and rates within the booking engine.
This includes a real time, steady flow of visual information to the guest that showcases packages and rates, with ResNet World saying this will ensure that your website is selling for you from the moment the potential booker arrives to your website.
I took the opportunity at the end of a superb Maximum Occupancy conference to have a chat with Saahil and to hear what he had to tell me about ResNet World and what they offer the accommodation sector to drive real business, please click on the video below:
