Why you need Mobile/ Smartphone Websites

WHY MOBILE

The growth of Mobile is unlike anything we have known.

19.7 million US travellers use smartphones to search for travel in 2010
29.7 million US travellers expected to search using smartphones in 2012.
15.1 million US travellers expected to book on mobiles in 2012 *e-marketer 2011

In 5 years, Mobile will outpace the entire PC market for computing power, Internet access and innovation.

More people will surf the Net on Mobile devices than on PCs.

Your Guests will be using Smartphones and expecting you to provide service into the palm of their hand.

Mobile has greater reach: 4.8 billion vs. 1.7 billion Internet.

Mobile will create the ability to individually target more people than any other channel, according to Google.

5 times more Shopper Buys (convert) than on the Net.

What we currently do for Web design and Service will not work in the future!

From this To this

In this worst-case scenario - the website will not display in the iPhone at all.

This website is using Flash which is not supported by Apple in iPhone website browsing.

The Smartphone Website is designed for mobile travellers - all pages fit neatly into the mobile Screen.

Buttons and links are large enough to be sensitive to a touch.


iPhone fails to display Flash website.
35% of websites use some from of Flash
.

The problem with a regular Website is that is cannot fit into the small screen of a Smartphone. This causes difficulty for users to navigate. Where the website uses Flash, it may not display at all on iPhone.


The experience that a Smartphone traveller wants is not the same as a desktop or laptop user.

Mobile users expect concise and to-the-point information, available at a touch. Touch is far more inaccurate that a mouse cursor and Smartphones need larger buttons and links that will respond to a touch.

Booking engines are particularly difficult on Smartphones where dates and party details are selected from menus that are intricate and small. They are hard to manage with finger tip control. In many cases, it is impractical.

Smartphone users are searching the web and 40% actually use the web to research travel. 25% say they have booked on a Smartphone, mostly using OTA systems like Expedia, which provide a mobile interface.

While mobile travellers continue to surf the net and look at websites, the experience is not simple and requires a fair amount of moving about unnecessary effort and frustration.

As more hotels and tourism suppliers offer better mobile solutions, those that do not will be a disadvantage.

AXSES Strategy, in a nutshell, allows hotels and tourism operators, car companies and activities to quickly have a very effective mobile presence at reasonable cost.

Google's Policy is now Mobile First. They develop for Mobile before they deploy desktop and laptop applications.

The Smartphone preeminently connected to cloud with voice, location, and eyes (camera) to give you unmatched power and flexibility. It changes the possibilities enormously.

Google demonstrated its new Translation System where a traveller in Germany snaps a menu with the Smartphone camera and the image is immediately translated. Try that with your desktop. This is only possible because of a massive network of cloud-based systems that are learning as they work. The network of cloud-computing uses 1000s of pieces of hardware and software that combine to solve problems like instant and accurate translation from picture.

The cloud is the Internet, with more than 700 million servers around the globe that can be integrated to work in tandem on problem. Now it can be in the palm of your hand.


The number of Mobile Web users will reach 95 million by 2013.
"There were 54.5 million mobile Internet users in the US at the time, representing 25% of online users. . . "

Mobile computing, particularly Smartphone computing in the form of Internet surfing and the use of website applications, e-commerce, bookings and guest services, will overtake the desktop in a few years.

The resources and development being put into Mobile Smartphone Web services, apps, devices and innovation already exceed that deployed for the desktop.

Smartphones will overtake all feature mobile phones by 2011.

All projections indicate that by 2011, 50% of all cell phones in the US will be smartphones.
The Mobile App Check study found over 60% of 18+-age cell phone owners now have a smartphone.
