25hours Hotels

25hours hotels - Custom Booking Engine

25hours hotels (25hours-hotels.com) is a German hotel group with hotels in Germany, Switzerland and Austria. The company, located in Hamburg, runs various design oriented boutique properties, each with their own style.

Brief

Workmatrix was asked to develop jointly a hotel website for the group. We developed the overall structure and worked closely with the existing agency on the seamless integrated booking engine. The booking engine directly connects to the Sabre Hospitality CRS System allowing the hotels to manage the groups' website availability like other channels (e.g. GDS, IDS etc.)

Solution

The travel booking engine is powered by our Content Management Solution, allowing the reservations team to add additional information during the booking process. The booking engine automatically adopts to the setup within the CRS. This allows the hotel distribution team to add dynamic packages dynamically extending the booking process.

The same CMS powers the mobile version of the booking engine- automatically switching the users to either the mobile booking engine or the standard website.

Since launching the site we provide Search Engine Marketing Services in order to promote the website and attract bookers.
