The Hotel Internet market is evolving at an exceptional rate. Gone are the days when it was enough to build a site and leave it unchanged for the next year. Accordingly, all Strawberry World® managed web sites are totally flexible, customisable and component based allowing the most up-to-date improvements and enhancements to be added quickly and seamlessly. On a daily basis, our team constantly monitor trends, latest technology and design enabling pro-active and rapid updates to be made. As the technology improves, so do Strawberry World® managed sites, thus maintaining a hotel's up-to-date image.
Today, 65% of prospective guests will visit a hotel's web site regardless of where they will book, so it is vitally important to create the right image. In January 2008, Strawberry World® will open a new media centre dedicated to supplying our partner hotels with high quality images and video designed to project the most favourable image, enabling maximum booking potential and an overall increase in occupancy from all other marketing sources.
