New Tablet Optimized Website Solution for Hotels
We are thrilled to announce the launch of the new VPowered Tablet Website! Read on for more details about it.
Technology moves fast in the 21st century. Without a doubt, tablets have become enormously popular over the past three years and are predicted to outnumber PCs by 2015. With people connecting on the go, anywhere, anytime, through multiple mobile devices it is clear we are heading into a “post-PC” world.
69% of iPad users surveyed have used their tablet for researching and planning travel, and of those who used their tablet for shopping, 47% used the device to book a hotel*.
For consumers, browsing on a tablet isn’t the same as browsing on a computer or a smartphone – screen sizes and platforms differ and navigation methods vary. Many websites are compatible with tablets meaning they “fit” on the screen, but this doesn’t mean they are optimized for tablets.
This is what drove the development of the VPowered Tablet Website.
Key Features of the VPowered Tablet Website:
Fantastic design and user experience.
The easy to navigate layout allows users to move from page to page easily using their fingertips to swipe and tap.

Integrated Hotel Information.

This version is optimized for the most popular tablet devices.
The VPowered Tablet Hotel Website was designed with our customers in mind, giving consumers a fully optimized experience when researching, planning and booking travel. Experience the VPowered Tablet Hotel Website by visiting www.thegeorgianterrace.com from a tablet.
As our CEO, Paolo Boni, so eloquently put it, “The line between mobile and desktop is blurring and tablet usage is increasing exponentially. Hotels that keep up with these advancements and invest in optimizing their websites for tablet will lead the pack. The VPowered Tablet Website helps hotels succeed in the “post-PC” world by making it easier for them to meet travelers’ demands.”
