Padre Getaways Redesigns Vacation Rental Website

Screen Shot 2015-07-22 at 10.18.59 PM

Hello, South Padre Island.

Padre Getaways, based in sunny South Padre Island, TX, recently launched a redesigned website with team ICND. Integrating with RMS, we were able to seamlessly integrate their property management software into our new booking engine platform. Padre has also opted for our LeadTracker software, a critical element to running their leads through a trusted software system that gets more bookings. Before, Padre Getaways offered limited ability to book online, but with their new integration in place, you now can effortlessly book Padre Getaway’s full inventory of vacation rentals. With our SEO team working with the team at Padre Getaways, we’re eager to see amazing results from their organic traffic and pay per click budgets too.

We met up with Padre Getaways at VRMA Annual in San Diego late last year, and we were thrilled to meet their needs on the latest website design. With great new design elements like a new featured property widget on the homepage, an image-heavy design that emphasizes great photography and a conversion centric design, Padre Getaways is looking forward to finishing their summer strong.

Fickling & Company Launches New Booking Engine

Here at ICND we are proud of the amazing websites we build for our customers and all the ways those sites help their business.  We love building websites, but lately we have been stretching ourselves a little by taking on projects that require a bit of flexibility and innovation.

Fickling Booking Engine

 

We were recently approached by Fickling Vacation Rentals, a client in the vacation rental market located on sunny St. George Island, about a unique project.  The folks at Fickling were very happy with their existing website.  The loved the look and feel of the site, however, they were not satisfied with their booking engine, the software that let their guests search properties and make reservations.

This is just the kind of challenge that we love to take on.  We immediately tasked a team of programmers with finding a way to add the power and usability of our custom built booking engine while preserving the existing aesthetic of the site.

Fickling Vacation Rentals had plenty of reasons to search out a better booking engine.  Many of our clients tell us that one of the hardest parts of their business is helping potential guests find the right property and then getting them through the reservation process in as few steps as possible.  When we were developing our booking engine we took these concerns very seriously.  The resulting software is optimized for conversions, packed with user-friendly search features and removes as many barriers to reservations as possible.

With the project completed Fickling can have everything they want.  The same great website with a brand new engine under the hood.

With this successful project completed we’re looking forward to working with more clients who challenge us with interesting projects that let our experts put their skills to work.
