Warwick International Hotels is now offering mobile booking through Pegasus Solutions at www.warwickhotels.mobi.

The renowned international collection of more than 40 hotels and resorts, which upgraded to NetBooker NG in late 2009, will offer 27 of its distinctive hotels and resorts for booking with any mobile device through the technology partnership between Pegasus Solutions and Dublin’s Mobile Travel Technologies Limited (MTT).

Research from Deloitte shows that one in 10 people have used a hotel application on a Web-enabled smartphone to book a room, access a loyalty program account, view/modify/cancel a reservation, pay a bill, check in or check out. As mobile travel booking follows this course to more widespread acceptance and use, Alan Gonzalez, director of distribution and e-commerce for Warwick International Hotels, said NetBooker NG has positioned Warwick advantageously to remain both competitive and relevant.

“We were early adopters of Pegasus’ NetBooker NG, which we selected for its ability to effectively capture bookings at warwickhotels.com,” said Gonzalez. “The booking engine has already proven scalable and flexible according to our needs during our most recent move to take the site mobile, helping us appeal to the growing number of travelers who are comfortable booking with their mobile devices. Many of the same options we offer at warwickhotels.com using NetBooker NG are now available to mobile users at warwickhotels.mobi.”

Warwick has a 16-year relationship with Pegasus, in which the international brand enjoys membership with Utell Hotels & Resorts for private label global distribution system (GDS) representation under the ‘WK’ code. Pegasus also provides Warwick with worldwide private label Utell voice services and travel agent-preferred global commission processing.

“The team at Warwick has always demonstrated an understanding of and dedication to advancing technology in ways that will drive business,” said Ric Leutwyler, chief operating officer of Pegasus and president of Utell Hotels & Resorts. “Their foresight in implementing NetBooker NG during a difficult economy when budgets were constrained has positioned them to emerge from the downturn with competitive strategies, like mobile booking, that will place them further ahead in the race for bookings. We’re delighted to be working with the Warwick team to continue implementing technology solutions that drive business.”
