, a mobile services firm based in New York, the new application grants full access to Omni's mobile site, directly from the iPhone application interface. iPhone users are some of the heaviest consumers of mobile content, and the Omni application provides these customers with a unique and user-friendly interface that is optimized for iPhone and iTouch devices.
"Omni Hotels continues to be a leader in hospitality e-commerce by developing the first hotel-branded iPhone application, specifically optimized for the latest 3G platform. Our new application is one more way that Omni Hotels creates a memorable and personalized stay, by connecting with our guests in a way that is convenient for them, while allowing us to bring all of our online initiatives into one handheld mobile dashboard," says Omni's corporate director of e-commerce Kerry Kennedy.
