Sunbank House Hotel in Perth joins the Innfinite client base, and new web development delivered 13 May 2011.
This charming personally owned and run Perth Hotel, one of the few Perth 4 star hotels and certainly the smallest, had virtually no sustainable on line sales, marketing and ecommerce policy or strategy until Innfinite stepped in in March 2011, by referral, and within 6 weeks, had a full scale web development ecommerce, channel management and distribution strategy and tactical plan perfect for its needs, and which is already posting huge business and revenue gains in what is one of the more difficult Scottish destination markets on the web.
As marketing consultants to Edinburgh Hotels Association, Innfinite embarks on a new brief for the whole web positioning of this prestigious group of Edinburgh hotels.
Edinburgh hotels Association comprises most of the very best hotels in Edinburgh, and is now aiming to become the booking site of choice for business and leisure travel shoppers looking for Edinburgh hotels. The new model will also adopt a new approach to on line destination marketing for Edinburgh, and utilise this to leverage Scotland's top destination for the benefit of both the travel shopper and the hotel members. Along with Innfinite and its comprehensive knowledge, expertise and experience in the Edinburgh hotel market on line, the members of EHA have a vast array of travel shopper utility at their disposal, and we aim to transfer that authority via the new site to give travel shoppers the confidence and trust they won't get for a unique destination like Edinburgh from the on line merchants and OTC's. The Association is introducing both a blog, and its very own on line persona , Edinburgh hotel expert and travel agent, Hamish.
Maryculter House Hotel in Aberdeen joins the Innfinite client base, and new web development and ecommerce brief now being prepared.
We were recommended to this prestigious Aberdeen hotel client by Peter Sim, erstwhile GM for one of the award winning hotels once owned by Innfinite, and now the GM at Maryculter! Innfinite in fact won the Scottish website of the year awards for 2005, 2006 and 2007. The project involves a full front to back, root and branch review and complete recreation and transformation of the whole ecommerce and on line reservation system at the hotel, including full integration of the latest 'cloud' based Guestline PMS to the Navarino CRS, and a brand new on line presence and profile which will revolutionise the 'Maryculter House Hotel Experience' to the on line visitor.
Innfinite introduces on line reputation management services to its service portfolio, also a state of the art, hotel friendly on line gift voucher purchase solution.
More about this shortly. No on line strategy is complete in the current environment without a sustainable reputation management element. We have scalable solutions for all sizes and styles of hotel, this is most certainly not 'a one size fits all' solution. Our on line gift voucher purchase solution can be seen at www.huntingtowerhotel.co.uk - is customised to each individual client, is built only for hotels, provides payment to the at the point of purchase, is commission free - and integrates perfectly with Sagepay and Paypal.
Innfinite hopes to have its own fully optimised, mobile search friendy smartphone website solution ready for the market in September 2011.
Innfinite strongly believes that a mobile website will become (if it isn't already) an essential promotional tool and must-do business and booking channel for all hoteliers, regardless of size. We have been researching and studying mobile and smartphone solutions for some months now, have been identifying all the pitfalls in terms of scale, usability and functionality - and we now have a development on the table which will be affordable to the smallest hotelier, will be fully optimised, configured and mobile search engine ready, will render and be fully navigable (including maps) on all major smartphone devices - and which will integrate seamlessly with the Sabre/Navarino booking engine, our preferred ecommerce solution, thereby rendering the BE perfectly on all devices, soon to follow with other suppliers' booking links. We are currently working in partnership with Chardon Management on this project which is being beta tested at Marks Hotel in Glasgow.
Innfinite is to launch Hotel Review Scotland as the new online resource for the Hospitality Industry in Scotland.
Hotel Review Scotland, new landing page at www.hotelreviewscotland.com - is the new online resource for the Hospitality Industry in Scotland. Featuring Scottish hotel deals and offers, hospitality and hotel news, market reports, columns, staff movements, industry events, jobs, suppliers and industry links. Innfinite has long believed that Scotland needs its very own hospitality forum like www.hospitalitynet.org, or www.hotelnewsnow.com, spawned in the USA, where we can share with you on a professional platform, all things Scottish travel and hotels, from industry and market news, events, feature columns, articles, advice - and Scottish hoteliers' own news and views - in effect a professional community and a development resource.
We'll combine this with Innfinite's blog, already launched, at www.ukhotelexperts.co.uk, - and our new Edinburgh hotels blog at www.edinburghhotelexperts.com and we'll shortly be inviting all Scottish hoteliers, serviced accommodation providers and innkeepers to join up, and make initial contributions of the matters concerning them most about the industry in Scotland.
