Apartment Barcelona Launches New Mobile Website

  1. 1. Apartment Barcelona Launches New Mobile Website Guests of the leading apartment rental agency can now book their accommodation on the go Barcelona, December 18, 2013 – Apartment Barcelona, one of the most popular apartment rental agencies for visitors to the Catalan capital, has today announced the launch of a new mobile version of its website: http://m.apartmentbarcelona.com. The site is accessible from any web-enabled phone, allowing customers to search and reserve their accommodation in Barcelona anytime, anywhere. The mobile website provides guests with all of the information necessary to reserve an apartment in or around Barcelona quickly and easily. Users will have access to a range of features that are also available on the desktop site such as the search bar, apartment categories, search filters and guest reviews, but on the new mobile site they will be able to check availability or contact the company at the touch of a button. Enhanced usability for mobile phones Every aspect of the mobile site is optimized to enhance the user’s experience when browsing content on the small screen of a mobile phone. Images have been resized, buttons made larger and it is now easier to view each apartment’s characteristics when navigating the site by mobile phone. “We noticed a significant increase in traffic and reservations coming from smartphones and tablets over the past year,” says David Aguilar, Owner and Managing Director of Apartment Barcelona. “With this in mind, we wanted to give our current and potential guests a more visual, easier to use, on-the-go experience. Our goal was for our customers to be able to easily access all of the information they need to reserve their ideal apartment from wherever they are, and with our mobile site they now can.” The company also has plans to implement more new elements to the mobile website in the future, to further improve usability from smartphones and provide an even better service for users looking to reserve accommodation on the move. A geo-localisation feature will give customers the opportunity to find an apartment close to where they are, an aspect of the mobile website which would be particularly useful for those heading to the city on business trips. “We are always striving to provide the best experience possible for our guests,” explains Sandra Roig, Marketing Manager at Apartment Barcelona, “and the new mobile site will help guests quickly find exactly what they want, regardless of their location.” Apartment Barcelona customers can visit the mobile website now at http://m.apartmentbarcelona.com.
