Bookassist specialises in driving direct bookings and revenue to hotel websites, and mobile is a fast-growing aspect of that business. “We see up to 20% of traffic to hotels now coming on mobile, and our solution means that hotels can capture and convert that traffic into real booking revenue. We have hundreds of hotels already using the technology, and ARCOTEL Hotels in particular is a prime example of what hotels should be doing in the mobile space”, said O’Mahony.
