Online hotel booking, online flight booking, online travel booking, online bus booking, online car rental booking and online movie ticket booking are some of the thriving businesses on Internet. Have you ever wondered what vehicle drives business ventures to success in these online niches? It is their reach to more and more customers through mobile marketing. By customers here, I refer to mobile users. And, the vehicle of growth for these businesses is mobile applications.
Booking.com, Expedia.com, Hotels.com, Travelocity.com, Orbitz.com and TripAdvisor.com are big players in the tourism and hospitality industry on the global front. They operate their businesses across geographies, both online and offline. They earn more revenues online than offline. Seamless access to their online services and products for more and more customers has been possible because of mobile communication technology integration into the business marketing infrastructure.
These conglomerates in the travel and hospitality industry are not only striving to grab a larger share of the international market but also competing with each other on the virtual marketplace. They are equipped and empowered with the latest mobile applications to make their hotel accommodation packages and online travel booking services available to the users of mobile devices including iPhones and iPads. To say briefly and evidently, their business growth and development online are driven by mobile applications.
Recently, Booking.com, an online platform offering hotel booking services on global levels, hit the headlines for having bagged the Amadeus Mobile Achievement Award. The seamless availability of its services to the group of mobile users across geographies brought the portal this prestigious award. Booking.com has been followed by Hotels.com, Expedia.com and TripAdvisor.com among the other achievers. They are awarded in the category, “mobile friendly service”.
These hospitality business giants are always ahead when it comes to integrating iPhone or iPad apps with their technological infrastructure. Once their apps are downloaded on mobile devices, the users can easily access the services and products. These travel and hospitality ventures have already integrated the latest iOS 7 app to their online mobile technology so that they can reach out to the iPhone users who download it.
