Seekom Quarterly Update

Seekom Quarterly Update

Welcome to the Seekom quarterly update.

It's been a busy few months in Q2 - Conferences, new features and functionality and more updates from the Development team.

Keep reading to learn about what Seekom has been up to since the last update and what we're doing to help you grow your business, occupancy and revenue in 2021.

1. 2021 Seekom Conference

Our 2021 Conference was a huge success. With over 100 attendees (including staff) at the Rydges Hotel in Wellington - our clients came away with a vast amount of ideas, experience and skills to assist them. From day to day operations to revenue growth and privacy, our diverse range of keynote speakers inspired and educated the audience with their subject matter.

 

Seekom is very passionate about upskilling our clients in any area we can assist, as we want to work with you to make sure you're getting the highest level of occupancy and revenue that you can. We see the conference as a way to achieve this, as well as a great way for operators to network with suppliers and each other to gain that valuable knowledge.

If you missed out on our conference - dont worry! We will be hosting one in 2022 (hopefully - looking at you COVID!)

Below is a small gallery of some of the great photography captured by the talented Adrian Heke who was present at the event taking photos.

2. Website Booking Engine

Our new website booking engine is almost ready!

With it's modern UX (user experience) design and ease of use for your customers - a higher website conversion ratio and more direct bookings are just around the corner.

We're really excited to release these to our customers and bring in a more modern design of our website booking engine. The ability to track your marketing efforts through Google Analytics, Google Ads and Facebook Pixel will assist you or your marketing company in identifying ROI.

The booking screens will be released in phases, with the first iteration being quite "stripped back" to the essentials, and each phase will bring further functionality. We estimate the first phase of the booking engine to be with you by August 2021.

Please note these booking screens are still in development and are subject to change.
