IBC Hospitality Technologies Announces Direct Integration With Google Hotel Search

Partnership Instantly Offers IBC's Client Hoteliers Greater Marketing and Exposure

USA, Phoenix, Arizona. May 21, 2019

IBC Hospitality Technologies, producer of industry-leading software and services designed to help independent accommodations owners and operators more easily manage and market their properties, announced today a direct integration into Google Hotel Search. IBC's hotelier clients will have instant access to accommodations seekers globally. In addition, the integration will provide hoteliers with direct bookings.

"This is an incomparable opportunity for our clients," says Mike Dunklee, CMO of OBASA Hospitality, the parent company of IBC. "Google is one of the most popular places for people to begin their search for accommodations. This better positions our clients to receive more business, and because of their integration with IBC's distribution technology, they can receive more direct bookings from Google to help drive revenue growth and repeat business."

"Existing customers of IBC are already live on Google's Hotel Search and we are actively seeking additional hoteliers who want to benefit from the integration," says Dunklee. "IBC can professionally manage the metasearch of our clients through our proven MetaLogic program. MetaLogic is producing an average of 12:1 ROI for our customers. It also includes retargeting with the shortest look-back period in the industry, so our clients are only being marketed to warm lead candidates and not wasting their precious marketing budget."

Sales & Marketing: Technology Rules

It is impossible for any hotel to develop an effective sales and marketing plan that doesn't include a wide-ranging digital strategy. Online platforms have impacted virtually every aspect of their business, due to major changes in how Internet users research, plan, and book their hotel visits. As a result, a successful plan includes generating traffic through the use of a hotel website, social media, email and a myriad of other digital marketing technologies. One such strategy uses data collection and automation technology to create personalized content to individual customers. The goal of personalization marketing is to engage potential customers by communicating with them as individuals - to establish a more personal relationship - as a way of encouraging them to visit a property. Video marketing is also extremely important. Showing someone authentic video from a specific location is immersive and engaging, and video is still the preferred way for customers to interact with a hotel brand. Voice and Visual Search are increasingly in demand, as consumers are moving away from typing queries into a search engine. Instead, they can simply speak their request into their phone, and find and book a hotel without ever typing a word. Similarly, other platforms allow consumers to search visually for almost any image, and find out pricing information, shopping comparisons and how-to-buy - all from the app. The adoption of Artificial Intelligence is also becoming popular. The ability of chatbots to answer simple questions or fulfill requests 24/7 is undeniably appealing. In addition, A.I. seems best positioned to qualify leads that can be later nurtured and closed by a human sales expert - all at a fraction of the cost of a traditional support team. The June Hotel Business Review will examine how some sales and marketing professionals are integrating these innovative technologies into their operations.
