Over the coming weeks, iHotelier
, a division of Webvertising, Inc., will go-live with its revolutionary OneScreen user interface in key destination cities such as New York, Orlando, Miami Beach, Houston, Puerto Vallarta and Spain. Initially launched with The Broadmoor (www.broadmoor.com
) in Colorado Springs, OneScreen has proven to be the next step in hotel reservations by making the users online experience easier, faster, and more informative.
OneScreen eliminates the back and forth of searching for room availability and rates. Furthermore, the data fields for guest information (name, address, credit card, etc.) are immediately available to the user on the same screen, thus making it more accessible for the user to act on this reservation impulse. Dirk Cameron, iHotelier?fs Chief Operating Officer, explains, ?gThe development of OneScreen was an emphasis on our belief that a positive guest experience when booking a reservation, goes hand-in-hand with a solid and robust Central Reservation System. We noticed that the 3, 4, and 5-step processes that have become standard for online reservations could be improved upon and made to be more efficient. The concept is actually very simple. We took the back end of our existing system and developed a Flash based interface where users can take in the entire offering of the hotel all on one screen?h.
