Nobis Hotel Selects TRAVELCLICK® As Its Ecommerce Technology Partner
Newly renovated property in Stockholm will leverage TRAVELCLICK’s total solution to maximize distribution channels, leverage business intelligence, and drive web bookings through digital marketing
CHICAGO/LONDON -- TRAVELCLICK®, the market leader in hotel ecommerce solutions, has announced an agreement with Nobis Hotel, Stockholm’s first contemporary luxury hotel, to provide a complete suite of TRAVELCLICK products including distribution, business intelligence, and digital agency services. Originally opened in 1899, the iconic building has been completely refurbished and is scheduled to open as a hotel on 1 December 2010. Designed by Oskar Ericsson, it was originally a private residence for industrial magnate Walter Hirsch before housing many legendary restaurants at the turn of the century.
“TRAVELCLICK has proven its ability to maximize visibility and online bookings for any and every type of property,” said Claes Anerud, CEO of Nobis Hotel. “We are confident TRAVELCLICK’s solutions will reap dividends when we open in December—showcasing ourselves as Stockholm’s first and only contemporary luxury hotel. We want to provide luxury for people who want the best comfort and quality, but also value. There is a strong market for that and TRAVECLICK is enabling us to ensure they come and stay with us.”
Nobis Hotel will use TRAVELCLICK’s iHotelier® Central Reservation System to boost conversions, grow revenue per stay, and maximize direct-to-web bookings. The hotel will leverage the merchandising capabilities of iHotelier’s award-winning iStay® web booking engine, enabling shoppers to upgrade room types and amenities and secure special services such as spa times. As a complement, MobiBook™, exclusively for iHotelier clients, will provide an additional, cost-effective channel for direct-to-hotel bookings—equipping the hotel with a mobile booking engine and branded mobile website to reach on-the-go travelers. To further maximize its mobile presence, Nobis will take bookings through StayHIP™, the world’s first bookable mobile application exclusively designed for boutique hotels.
The hotel’s website has been designed to showcase the hotel’s unique personality, engage visitors, and ultimately drive higher booking value. Shoppers click through to special offers preloaded in the booking engine with no additional searching. An intuitive Content Management System gives Nobis the ability to edit and maintain site content conveniently—anytime, from anywhere.
TRAVELCLICK’s award-winning design team is also building in services that will expand the hotel’s reach throughout the online world. A customized, integrated marketing plan for the property uses proven search engine optimization (SEO), pay-per-click (PPC) advertising, email campaigns, and Global Distribution System advertising to further target guests and drive demand.
Complementing TRAVELCLICK’s distribution and digital agency services is Hotelligence360™, a revolutionary suite of integrated business intelligence applications. With Hotelligence360, Nobis can see its performance from every angle, forecast future trends, and maximize revenue. From interactive analytics to dynamic dashboards and proactive alerts, data will be a strategic asset to capture market share, outperform competitors, and drive businesses forward.
"The rapidly changing world of online consumer shopping will continue to create new revenue challenges, and opportunities, for hotels worldwide, prompting the need for leading-edge distribution, business intelligence, and digital market strategies,” said Jan Tissera, President of TRAVELCLICK International. “In selecting a complete and integrated solution for ecommerce, the Nobis Hotel is opening its doors with optimum opportunity to capture more online business—and to reinforce its unique market position as a classically elegant, yet chicly contemporary, hotel experience.”
