"GoMio is a leading distributor of hostels around the world," says Appnostic CEO Brian Dass. "This partnership allows us to provide our hospitality industry-leading social booking technology to a company that understands the importance of harnessing the power of Facebook distribution."
Appnostic's SocialBooker™, the first hotel social distribution platform specifically optimized for Facebook's Social Graph, now extends to hostels to apply Facebook's viral network to maximize sales, build customer loyalty, and deliver improved customer service. Appnostic has enhanced its SocialBooker™ capabilities to enable travelers to search across a large number of hostels with a single search request.
"Hostels and social networks are both built around the idea of community, and SocialBooker™ provides the most advanced social media booking tools for hostel travelers on Facebook," says Michael Tumminia, CEO of GoMio. "Additionally, we are pleased to offer this technology to the hostels in our network so that they can receive bookings directly from Facebook members. This innovative partnership allows our member hostels to tap into the social graph to reach new prospective travellers."
Increasingly, travelers are gravitating towards more personalized, socially connected "F- commerce" experiences. Appnostic has established itself as a leader in this field by enabling the hospitality industry to monetize their fan bases. The company's innovative technology offers sales channels that extend the reach of social media.
"Hostel travelers are symbiotic with the Facebook generation," says Appnostic EVP Jeff Thomas. "We are thrilled to partner with GoMio to provide their plugged-in base of active travelers with the most advanced social-powered hostel booking experience."
