Mobile IRM – Online Booking Engine for Smartphones and Tablets

In the 3rd Quarter of 2017, RDP announced the release of IRM Next Generation, IRMng.  This application takes advantage of the latest software development releases in order to provide potential guests with a streamlined online booking experience.  Please visit this page for additional information.

Mobile IRM is part of RDP’s suite of mobile modules.  It is a smartphone and tablet optimized version of the IRM.Net (Internet Reservation Module Booking Engine) that allows guests to make reservations using any Smartphone or tablet with an internet connection and a browser.

Mobile IRM 02

With the standard IRM.Net product it is virtually impossible to make a reservation on a Smartphone because there is simply too much information on the screen and the data entry fields are too small.  With Mobile IRM the screens are optimized for the Smartphone or tablet screen size, allowing for easy viewing or availability and entry of data.  The Mobile IRM greatly increases the appeal, functionality and success rates of bookings on your website.  Guests expect to be able to use their Smartphone to do many things these days, including easily make reservations.  Some statistics to note:

  • 51% of all guests who have a smartphone use it to find a property (see reference).
  • 65% of all same day reservations are from a smartphone.  (see reference).
  • The percentage of reservations using a Smartphone increased 50% in 2012 (see reference).

It is important to let the statistics above sink in.   Over 50% of your potential guests are using a Smartphone, and if you don’t have the Mobile IRM you will lose all that business.  As time goes on, the percentage of reservations made via smart phone will only increase.  Don’t get left behind!

In addition to direct reservations from the Mobile IRM, many customers will browse your site using their mobile device, and then call for more information or make the reservation on the phone.   If you do not have the Mobile IRM, these customers are unlikely to ever make that phone call because they cannot properly peruse your website and booking engine.

RDP is offering special introductory pricing on Mobile IRM.  For more information please contact RDP Sales.

Your Marketing Website with RDP Mobile IRM

To optimize the value of  RDP’s mobile IRM, customers should also have a mobile version of their marketing website.  The flow is as follows:

  1. When a guest comes to your marketing website from a desktop or laptop computer, they will see the full sized marketing site as before.   The link on the full size marketing website for “make reservation now” will go to the full size IRM.Net from RDP.
  2. When a guest comes to your marketing website from a SmartPhone or Tablet, you should set your marketing website to automatically display your marketing mobile website.  The link on your mobile website for “make reservation now” will go to Mobile IRM, and be properly formatted for either a SmartPhone or Tablet.

One of our customers, The Dalles Inn, has set up both IRM.Net and Mobile IRM to function as described above.   Use the following link from your SmartPhone and then your desktop computer for an example:
