Enabling hotels to offer dynamic packaging on their own website
IXeo Interactive, in partnership with Micros Systems, has launched micros-ix, an online gateway enabling hotels to offer dynamic packaging on their own website. (12/7/2007)
According to a release, hotels can sign up to micros-ix for an annual subscription fee of just €5 per room, per month. No fee will be charged for any bookings made through the customer´s website and IXeo Interactive offers all hotel companies a free 30-day trial.
Graham Leslie, founder of IX Interactive and IXeo.com, says: "Micros-ix is an industry first. We enable hotels to take back control of their online distribution and positioning. We provide a product that supports a hotel´s market position and develops their website, turning it from an online brochure into a key revenue generator."
Leslie added, "I believe we deliver a competitively-priced product that is easy to download, easy to monitor and above all, a sympathetic sales and marketing partner that connects hotel partners direct to market."
"Access to micros-ix can be added to any existing hotel website, whether on individual property or a chain, and download is immediate from www.micros-ix.com. Once downloaded, the micros-ix button will sit on the hotel´s website, inviting users to access the hotel´s pre-loaded travel planner. The portal will then take users of the hotel´s website through to a fully loaded destination gateway from where they can book flights, tours and excursions, consult interactive maps, and browse points of interest as well as book their hotel accommodation."
While micros-ix will provide content from the tourism gateway IXeo.com, (which includes access to over 800 airlines and comprehensive destination information), hotel partners will be able to edit their own content and manage their own rates automatically picked up from the hotel´s CRS system, as well as offering their own partners advertising space on the their site as a means of covering the annual subscription fee, or generating extra revenue.
