allowing travelers to compare options and book direct with the hotel and tourism supplier
Bridgetown, Barbados (PRWEB) June 20, 2009
AXSES Systems Caribbean Inc. launches arcResBookings.com, a Travel marketing platform for Facebook. arcResBookings for Facebook is a unique application that helps tourism operators and hotels integrate Facebook into an overall marketing strategy including Social Media and Social Networking. With arcRes Bookings Facebook becomes a travel channel where guest can find rates and book hotel rooms and tourism activities on their social network.
Facebook is a soft sell travel channel and very much a place to voice your Brand and to engage guests and potential guests in an environment of their choice. AXSES' Facebook tourism application (arcResBookings.com), makes it easy for tourism operators to load products (hotel rooms, packages, specials, tours and activities) into Facebook and to manage inventory rates and bookings on Facebook.
Hotel and Tourism suppliers already using arcRes channel manager or arcRes Bookings Engine on their own website, can load and manage their travel and tourism products with just a few clicks. Tourism suppliers that don't use arcRes may consider its many advantages: It is an in-expensive travel booking engine for tourism websites that also manages many Direct channels delivering high profit direct sales with no commission. arcRes is also integrated with Global Distribution Systems (GDS), RSS distribution and Social networking; giving vast distribution at very low cost.
AXSES' "Supplier Direct Travel Channels", like BookingsStlucia.com, promote holiday specials, packages and the complete destination product, "allowing travelers to compare options and book direct with the hotel and tourism supplier". arcResBookings.com is the first of its kind Social Media travel platform for Facebook. "arcRes Bookings for Facebook is a first step of many" says Kathy-Lynn Ward, COO of AXSES. "We have been watching Social Networks spread from the school to the mainstream". Ward also notes; "The fastest growing social network user is now adults and business people: Facebook and other Social Networks are changing business and the Internet".
