Galileo - Focalpoint™ Hotel Images


30.09.2010

Overview (PA 1053)

Over 860,000 hotel images and 30,000 video tours are now available for approximately 95% of the properties in the RoomMaster™ Hotel system on Apollo™ and Galileo™ – BUT they are not currently integrated with the agents’ shopping process in Galileo Desktop.

Although the Point and Click application (available only on Galileo core) provides access to hotel images, Point and Click does not support 100% of hotel features/functions – thus proficient Galileo agents that choose to use Focalpoint for hotel shop/book (versus Point and Click) do not currently have easy access to hotel images.

To address these issues and keep agents within the Apollo/Galileo environment when shopping/booking hotels, an add-on Focalpoint application for Galileo Desktop 1.x and above, was developed that provides agents with easy access to images for displayed hotels.
