(PRWEB) July 7, 2005 -- How to increase bookings online of more than 136% ?!
(source Radisson.com) The thing that increases the revenue of hotels is the use
of modern multimedia in new and old channels - both online and offline sales -
especially Virtual Tours.
We found this numbers when we were doing research for some five star hotel somewhere in Middle East. Our job was to tell managers of the hotel how to increase bookings and RevPar and why another five star hotel down the beach has far better RevPar. The hotels were very similar, both have 5 stars, both are members of brand group, similar number of rooms etc.
We were looking for answer in different places and in many ways.
There are many different ways of doing business in these two hotels but one is very important.
The answer is a little surprising
The thing that increases the revenue of one of these hotel was the use of modern multimedia in new and old channels - both online and offline - especially Virtual Tours.
Virtual tours are a specialty type of photography that allows the viewer to experience everything surrounding the camera. Virtual tours bring your potential guests into the center of a scene where they can interactively scan entire areas within one image.
Virtual Tours can be use online in website, in CD format as a tool for Sale staff, as a tool to travel offices, even more – as a gift for customers. (Read more on http://www.hotelsvr.com)
We decided to create new company and make Virtual Tours for hospitality industry.
The Manager of the hotel from our story asked my friend: “Ok, we hire professional photographer, and he takes shoots, but who would make a virtual tour, who will insert it on our website ? Is our website good enough for this picture ? Who makes CD brochures ? Do we have to be looking for next companies to do it ? It will cost a lot of money .“
My friend said : “The answer is quite simple. You should find full service professional virtual tour service provider. This provider should not only shoot picture, but host images, build and host virtual tour web pages, creating CD-ROMs and producing them. “
There are many vendors in the market, but most are only offered photography services, that means that the rest of development work lies in the management of this hotel. We are one of not many full service virtual tour providers. Of course You shouldn’t think that we are unique and the only one in the market. No, there are many good service providers in the market and everybody should try to check it before sign an agreement with us.
There are many service providers and they are doing a really good job, but how many of them are full service provider and (what is maybe more important) do their job with passion and love ? We love what we do and do it with passion. We are not a big company and we could (and we are) treat every client personally and uniquely .
So we invite You - we just lunch new web site: www.hotelsvr.com .
