has expanded the first suite of next generation hotel reservations solutions to include the powerful RezView Internet Booking Engine. Built on Pegasus' RezView NG next generation enterprise delivery platform to affordably offer small- and medium-sized hotel companies powerful and highly customizable brand sites, RezView Internet Booking Engine is being demonstrated at HITEC booth #1113.
PhoCusWright predicts one in three global travelers will book online by 2012, with supplier Web sites representing two thirds of the market. However, continued channel diversification is forcing hotels to use limited resources to manage more channels, including voice, global distribution systems (GDSs), online travel agencies (OTAs), mobile and their own brand sites. Leveraging the award-winning RezView NG central reservation system (CRS), Pegasus has introduced RezView Internet Booking Engine to manage distribution across all channels.
RezView Internet Booking Engine creates websites for hotels with little to no design resources. For larger hotel companies with multiple properties in the same city, it uses smart search technology to pinpoint a hotel using keyword searches, with a consumer-friendly filter to further define and narrow search results. It also integrates with social media to include sharing features in the booking process. RezView Internet Booking Engine also enables hoteliers to capture additional revenue by offering other property services and amenities via the eConcierge feature.
The RezView Internet Booking Engine was built using HTML5 to provide an exceptional Web experience across desktop and mobile devices without requiring add-ons such as Adobe Flash; CSS3 to provide complete control over the look and feel of the Web site with minimal development and deployment effort; and architected to run on cloud platforms like Amazon's EC2 for instant scalability and high performance under any load.
Pegasus is also launching RezView Mobile as part of its suite of next generation hotel reservations solutions to offer independent and chain hotels broad mobile functionality at the best value available in the market.
