Open Rooms Upgrades Software

Open Rooms Scotland has this week introduced the first in a series of upgrades for its users giving a choice of three new "skins" for the accommodation websites.

The Open Rooms Scotland website package combines The Claymore Project tourism database with Bookassist's booking engine and offers affordable ecommerce ready web design for the largest or smallest operator with prices starting from £695 plus VAT inclusive of hosting, website development and integration of Bookassist into the site.

The new changes allow accommodation providers to select the design they wish from a selection of three options with others added over the next couple of months. The site remains fully content managed with the website owner able to update content, images and news. Events and Job Vacancies can also be added to the system for publication on a range of third party websites.

Current users can view the different styles currently available by clicking on the Site Appearance area of their control panel and select a new one to apply to their website which will update immediately. And of course if you're interested in changing your website in the future you could now perhaps consider Open Rooms Scotland as the perfect future proof answer.
