Vertical Booking launches new premium booking engine
Bergamo, Italy – 26 May 2017 –
Global reservation technology leader Vertical Booking announced today the release of their new Premium Booking Engine.
“We are continually improving our products to ensure we’re meeting the demands of our hotel partners, and their guests,” said Alberto Guadalupi, CEO of Vertical Booking Group. “Our new Booking Engine offers a beautiful, customizable front end, and the ability for hotel guests to securely sign in via their Facebook, Google or LinkedIn account to complete the reservation process.”
The Vertical Booking CRS booking engine allows guests to book services and accessories, in addition to their stay, through the dynamic packaging function. After selecting the room type and rate, guests may choose extra services, such as airport pickup, car rental, spa treatments or tickets for destination tours.”
“With my first-hand experience as a lodging owner/operator, I understand the importance of offering additional products and services to maximize the spend per guest,” said Mark Lewis-Brown, CEO/President of Vertical Booking USA. “With our new Booking Engine, services can be arranged per single hotel, at the chain level, or by integrating services from external suppliers. And, services can also be purchased separately, without a stay, which can be particularly beneficial for spa hotels.”
Hotels are rapidly jumping on board to utilize the new Premium Booking Engine, including the Albert Hotel in Toulouse, France, the Bela Vista in Portugal, and C.O.Q Hotel in Paris.
