Guestdesk Mobile is a new application developed to deliver an easy mobile booking engine solution for hotels. The application requires little setup because the mobile engine runs off the same information used by the regular Guestdesk booking engine.
The engine is designed to use a simple logo and color scheme that is customized to match the look and feel of the regular booking engine. These side by side captures show a regular booking engine and the mobile version.
The mobile engine also has the ability to display a list of promotions that are available online. This promotions page can differ from your existing specials page, delivering the ability to have "mobile only" specials to promote mobile booking activity.
The search results page is laid out to be simple. After a customer searches dates, a list of available room types with an image, price, and short description are displayed that are available.
After selecting an available room type a room details page is loaded. From this screen a customer can choose to see a detailed description of the room with additional images or skip the details and proceed to either the additional services section or the booking form, depending on the configuration.
The mobile engine also has the ability to sell additional services.
The final part of the mobile engine is the reservation form. It is important to remember that even on the mobile engine the entire reservation process is handled securely. The reservation form contains the same fields as the regular booking form. The main deference is the link the customer must follow in order to read the disclaimer. The series of images show the booking form.
