Mobile and tablet bookings for Pegasus client hotels made using the OpenView Internet booking engine amounted to more than 15% of all reservations in 2013.

Clients of Pegasus Solutions web services division enjoyed a boost from the channel, surpassing the industry-wide 11% for the year, as presented by PhoCusWright at FITUR in Madrid.

Desktop and laptop bookings still accounted for nearly 85% of reservations, but collectively, mobile devices drove 15.04% of reservations made through the booking engine. PhoCusWright suggested Europe as a whole would reach 15% by the end of 2014.

Device types used to book through OpenView included iPad, iPhone, Android, Kindle, and Windows Phone, among others. 

A year ago, we suggested hotels were responsible for the prevalence or lack of mobile bookings for their hotels, said David Millili, chief executive officer of Pegasus Solutions. That message resonated with our existing and new clients, and together we worked to increase the comfort level for mobile bookers visiting their sites. In addition to the bookings they realized in 2013, these hotels have also now established themselves as mobile-friendly among a valuable and burgeoning, according to PhoCusWright booking audience.
