Compass Edge, a leading provider of online distribution and marketing solution for independent hotels is pleased to announce its B2C Mobile App “GoHotelsGo – Asia Hotel Deals” is now available for free through Apple’s iTunes store and Android Market (Play Store).
As a natural extension of hotel websites, travelers can now book a room, check real-time last-minute deals and special offers; interact socially via Facebook and Twitter and instantly map and search any Compass Edge hotels using the “GoHotelsGo” Group Mobile App.
“Smartphone use continues to rise this year and hoteliers are acting accordingly by focusing on mobile initiatives such as Mobile App and Mobile website development,” said Mr. Wing Lee, Chief Operating Officer at Compass Edge. “As compared to Mobile websites, Mobile Apps are much more expensive to build, maintain and promote.
