hotel.info further expands its product portfolio: "Check and book" with the Windows Phone 7 App
London, 06. July 2011 – hotel.info announces the launch of the hotel.info Windows Phone 7 App which is now available for download from the Windows Marketplace. The free online hotel reservation service for more than 210,000 hotels worldwide has further expanded its product portfolio* in the field of mobile technology: Now owners of Windows Phone 7 mobile devices can access their hotel offering using a special application to "check and book".
The hotel.info application for Windows Phone 7 has a modern design, simple booking steps and retains the well-loved hotel.info features: the clearly displayed hotel list, the interactive map and the favourites' function for saving the hotels ensure a simple process for choosing the best accommodation. Detailed information on facilities and service, star rating and customer reviews and ratings help the customer to choose a hotel and make a reservation. The customer can view the history of previously booked hotels, making the booking overview even more user friendly. Corporate customers continue to benefit from their negotiated corporate rates via their mobile. The hotel.info corporate discounts are available to all business travellers.
Warini Munshi, Managing Director at hotel.info commented on the application: "With the launch of our new Windows Phone 7 App we continue to expand in the area of mobile technology. The seamless connection of our web application with mobile devices offers added value to our customers. Our excellent discounted corporate rates can be booked whilst travellling which makes our App particularly relevant for businesses.“
* In January 2010 hotel.info launched its mobile website m.hotel.info. Users of internet enabled mobile phones can take advantage of the specially designed mobile portal and book hotels at the Best Prices whilst travelling. At the beginning of this year the hotel.info iPhone App was introduced with the integrated Live View (augmented reality) feature.
www.hotel.info is a hotel reservation service for business and private customers offered free of charge. The service offers more than 210,000 hotels for electronic bookings around the world. Customers booking via hotel.info achieve significantly better prices in comparison with other booking channels. In addition, hotel.info shows all available room prices for each hotel, so that the customer can always select the cheapest or most suitable room price. All bookings via hotel.info are transferred simultaneously, securely and directly to the respective hotel’s computer. This guarantees the unique integration of each hotel’s own reservation system so-called CRS or PMS and hotel.de’s own reservation system myRES into the hotel.info unified user interface.
Using the experience of other hotel guests, customers seeking hotel rooms can base their decisions to book a room not only on the core information such as room price and hotel facilities, but also on the more than 1.5 million hotel evaluations and ratings submitted by hundreds of thousands of hotel guests from around the world. Compared with existing rating portals, hotel.info customers can rely on 100% genuine hotel ratings, since only customers who have booked and recently stayed in each hotel are asked for their opinion. hotel.info, the international brand of hotel.de AG, has been created in order to expand in markets in other countries. To acquire new customers and hotels abroad, offices in the UK (London), France (Paris), Spain (Barcelona), Italy (Rome), China (Shanghai) and Singapore have already been opened. The high percentage of international business travellers facilitates the Company's entry into new markets. The aim is to establish hotel.info as the leading online hotel reservation service for business as well as private customers.
