- One-to-one marketing capabilities

The smartCMS has already been awarded twice for its innovation, garnering the Gold Stevie® Award in the Best Software Programming/Design category at The 2014 American Business Awards, the nation’s premier business awards program.
“So much more than a Content Management System, the HeBS Digital smartCMS powers the most innovative, dynamic and revenue-generating hospitality websites in the industry today,” said Max Starkov, President & CEO of HeBS Digital. “The degree that outdated CMS technology can negatively affect revenues on the property website is often underestimated by hoteliers. CMS technology such as the smartCMS empowers hoteliers to seamlessly manage their website presence on the three screens via a single dashboard, engage users like never before and maximize revenues from the direct online channel. In the evolving world of hotel digital marketing, it is imperative for hoteliers to have complete control over their property website with limitless capabilities to merchandize the property’s product offerings and update textual, promotional and visual content as frequently as possible. The smartCMS offers all this and more.”
First-hand users of the smartCMS, HeBS Digital’s clients, have praised its ease-of-use and capabilities:
“I love the smartCMS. It’s intuitive and easy to navigate, but not too restrictive,” said Helena Martin, Digital Marketing Manager at Nickelodeon Suites Resort. “It’s perfect for any level user and lets me be self-sufficient. I love that I can create one special offer and have it roll out to all platforms if I choose, or just one. Another great feature is that I can schedule my promotions for future start and end dates.”
In a recent case study for the Kinzie Hotel in Chicago, HeBS Digital increased revenue by 114% with smartCMS technology, website design and digital marketing. Unique visitors also increased by 121%. In another case study for Sparkling Hill Resort, a European-inspired health and wellness destination resort in Vernon, British Columbia, revenue increased by 57%, with special packages generating 20% of total website revenue.
