What we do
Bookassist 101 | An Introduction
If you're a hotel, then we are the digital strategy partner you need.
We partner with hotels to build their brand online, drive direct business to their branded website, capture bookings with world class booking technology, help them optimize their online distribution and ensure they grow their margin per booking.
The Complete 360° Direct Booking Solution for Your Hotel
Our solution is built around four main highly-effective service areas. While other companies may offer services with similar names, our advantage is the real deep integration of these services so that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts:
Our account managers work directly with you to develop your product offering strategy, to improve booking conversion and eliminate barriers to purchase, using our industry-leading Booking Engine technology.
Our highly effective and Google-qualified Digital Marketing team will analyse your online presence, develop digital strategies to build your brand online, create demand and generate qualified traffic to your website, and give detailed reporting on effectiveness.
Our expert Web Design team provides a powerful and easily managed attractive and responsive web presence proven to enhance booker conversion, with simple content-management-system control.
Global Distribution System
We put you back in control of your distribution relationships so that you maximise margin on bookings and sell only where and when you need to sell.
Our systems are also highly integrated with leading channel managers, property management systems and revenue management partners worldwide. See our Technology Partners page for details.
Our Personalised Approach
Since 1999, our highly qualified team has adopted a scientific approach to maximising your direct bookings business, backed with world-class software, integrated analytics and continuous reporting. Our clients love our highly personalised approach, listening to your requirements, reacting to your specific needs, keeping in touch with you regularly to discuss progress.
We are localised in your country and in your language.
