GuestCentric’s all-in-one hotel digital marketing platform is becoming the de-facto standard for award-winning hotel website design that maximizes direct bookings
GuestCentric, the leading provider of cloud-based digital marketing software for hotels, announced today its customers’ websites have now been recognized with over 200 international innovation and design awards in under eight years.
GuestCentric and its customers were recognized with awards such as the Hermes Awards, the WebAwards, the W3 Awards, the Interactive Media Awards, the Stevie Awards, the Davey Awards, the Adrian Awards, the Horizon Interactive Awards, the Communicator Awards, the Summit Creative Awards, the Emerging Media Awards and the Ava Digital Awards, presented by organizations like the Academy of Interactive & Visual Arts (AIVA), the Interactive Media Council, Inc. (IMC), the Hospitality Sales & Marketing Association International (HSMAI), the Association of Marketing and Communication Professionals (AMCP) and the Web Marketing Association (WMA).
All the amazing awarded websites were built by GuestCentric’s world-class team of design, marketing and hospitality experts on top of the company’s cloud-based platform that allows for the creation and deployment of custom-built solutions in four weeks or less – all without breaking the bank. Combining visionary design, carefully crafted content and sales-oriented navigation to maximize conversion, GuestCentric creates unique web experiences that delight guests every step of the way, from discoverability to the moment of booking direct. Furthermore, GuestCentric’s platform provides hoteliers with full control over their websites, making it easy to change content, add photos, create new pages and launch special offers – on the website itself and also, most importantly, on the booking engine.
One such website-booking engine combo is El Cordova’s, which received accolades in five international competitions: “El Cordova Hotel has a lot of unique history to share with their guests: with a natural beauty and a charming Spanish hacienda style, our plan was to create a successful online strategy. The first step was to develop a website that could not only express its identity but also engage and convert users as future guests. We believe now that we’re in the right track to boost our main powerful direct sales channel: our official website”, said Tim DeGroot, General Manager of El Cordova Hotel.
GuestCentric’s innovative digital marketing software focuses on revenue generation with simplicity and ease of use, providing all features needed for hotel digital marketing success: sales-oriented and responsive websites, user-friendly booking engine mobile-optimized for hundreds of devices, a channel manager with access to over 400 integrations, social marketing, SEO optimization and extensive reporting and analytics.
“We couldn’t be prouder to have achieved this level of awards! We feel that this milestone is the ultimate validation that great cloud-based software can provide hotels with all the tools they need for digital marketing success, including award-winning websites,” said Pedro Colaco, CEO of GuestCentric. “We believe that we’re entering the age of direct bookings and we aim to provide hoteliers with the best tools to fulfill that future; to develop a successful, integrated digital strategy that accounts for the rise of direct bookings and that also accommodates OTAs and other players, such as metasearch websites or price comparison engines”, he concluded.
