A technology company is seeking to cut the time and costs of creating a website for independent travel companies and hotels.
Umi Digital, which provides digital products and services to the hospitality and travel industry, is promising to build websites in two weeks.
The ‘Two Week Website’ from the London-based firm is a fully customised site with content management system, created by British hotel and design professionals at a third of the average price of a website build.
Research indicates that the average cost of a new business website with content management system that is built from scratch by a reputable web developer or agency will cost a minimum of £3,000.
The firm claims to have developed a system that reduces web development time by 80%, dramatically reducing the build time.
With a selection of common travel industry structural and technical requirements already in place, its team can focus more time on producing a front-end design to create a strong and trusted brand identity.
This bespoke, targeted solution ensures that businesses receive a standards compliant, functional website that integrates their unique business requirements, including online booking software.
Chief executive Steve Lowy said: “As a hotelier myself, I understand that hotel owners are keen to keep up with the current online trends but are very time poor.
“The ‘Two Week Website’ takes the pressure off and gives hoteliers a brand new site in a fortnight that looks like it took a lot longer to make.”
