Cardinal Hotel's Custom OpenHotel Reservation Page
Once AI had decided to offer our state of the art booking engine as a stand-alone product we found many hotels that were unhappy with their existing booking engine software. We were excited to offer something different to the industry. OpenHotel offers a full featured, user friendly application and seamless integrated design with their existing website without having to move webmasters. Cardinal Hotel in California already has a great website but needed a booking engine - we designed their Open Hotel page to look just like their website for a seamless user transition when making reservations.

User Interaction Promotion via Content Management
New Smyrna Beach Visitor Center uses the CMS (content management system) to promote interaction on their website. The team at NSB created an idea to mimic the coveted community and media endorsement by asking all visitors who love New Smyrna Beach to take pictures with their sign and submit them for the Visitor Center to use in future advertising. A great way to keep visitors on your site is to have professional formatted content management pages which are easy to read and informative. See their landing page for Project NSB here.
