Worldhotels Renews Technology Agreement with Leonardo
Toronto, Canada and Frankfurt, Germany – May 28, 2014 – Leonardo Worldwide Corporation and Worldhotels, one of the global groups for independent upscale hotels, have renewed their partnership to enhance the display of Worldhotels’ visual media on the group’s desktop and mobile versions of worldhotels.com.
End-to-End Media Management Solution
Worldhotels and Leonardo have worked together for many years for the visual content management and distribution of media to travel channels including GDS (Global Distribution System) and IDS (Internet Distribution System) networks in Leonardo’s VNetwork. With Leonardo’s multi-media display technology, Worldhotels is ensured the visual content displayed on worldhotels.com and all channels is consistent.
The automatic advanced device, bandwidth and browser detection built-in to the multi-media display technology on worldhotels.com ensures that visitors always see media fully optimized for the browser.
Simple and seamless
Worldhotels required a display solution that was easy to implement and maintain. Leonardo’s Multi-Media Display Galleries are just that as they integrate easily into the website using simple java script.
Worldhotels’ VScape interface is directly connected with Leonardo’s hotel property level online merchandising solution, VBrochure. Worldhotels that subscribe to the ultra-premium version of the product benefit from being able to display additional media and customized text and tabs in their Multi-Media Display Gallery on worldhotels.com.
“Leonardo has been a reliable partner at getting our hotels’ visual content out to the largest network of travel websites and channels. With the evolution of their technology, they are now proving their expertise in integrating solutions specific to brand.com. Implementing Leonardo’s Multi-Media Display Galleries was quick and seamless and we are happy with end result,” says Tina Leedy, Worldhotels’ Director Marketing Services.
