Hirum users who have the Hirum booking form on their own web site along with direct integration into Hirum enjoyed almost $1million worth of direct bookings during the month of July. This in turn resulted in an additional $80,000 increase in revenue for their owners as well as saving the managers a lot of money in both time and workload.
This is a true win win for all parties.
I went along to the Jazz festival in Broadbeach some weeks ago and found the whole area abuzz with activity and music. Now Broadbeach is in the middle of its Food and Wine week. Do you have an active community to build business for the local area?
…..Even better, the Hirum total solution allows you to increase your owners return by 8%, now wouldn’t that put a smile on their faces!
The most difficult time is when a hotel or resort changes hands but no reference is made in the contract of sale as to the ownership of the Website and the domain name. The reason behind this is often quite alarming, the sellers simply don’t know and the buyers simply don’t know to ask!
