Hotelscene launches ‘next generation’ in online booking

Corporate accommodation and meetings
specialist Hotelscene rolls out its new online hotel booking system, MyStay, in
October. MD Nick Foot, claims it will position the agency as a leader in
corporate hotel booking technology.

It will be a phased roll out over six months,
with the company’s current Xtranet booking system being phased out.

Hotelscene claims MyStay, which uses Web 2
technology and which cost £1m to develop over 18 months, “will raise the bar in
terms of online adoption, reducing client transaction fees and improving
compliance levels”.

MyStay was designed by Hotelscene’s in-house
development team and Foot claims it will reduce booking costs and be 32 per cent
quicker for bookings through the new slimmed down three-stage process.

“The initial release is aimed at the
transient booking market,” Foot tells conference-news, “with the intention to
integrate conference and meetings ability during 2010.”

The system encompasses the AutoRebook tool
which searches for cheaper rates right up until the point of check-in which,
Foot says, “alleviates virtually all negative comments that users can gain
better rates elsewhere”.

Hotelscene’s clients include The BBC, Network
Rail and BT.
