My Guide: new reservation technology at the service of reactivating tourismCreated: Jul 26th 2021 - 12:10 PM Author: REPOST La Voz del Norte
Tourism has been one of the worst-hit in the pandemic and, paradoxically, is one of the most necessary to take a break from the tireless routine and mental and emotional exhaustion that prolonged isolation has caused. With the arrival of the end of the year and thanks to the gradual opening of cities in Chile, it is already possible to think about vacations, although considering all health precautions. For this reason, the My Guide Chile portal (https://www.myguidechile.com/), belonging to My Guide Latin America, allows Chilean companies located both in Santiago and in regions, to have a space to exhibit their different proposals associated with offers in travel, tourist destinations, gastronomy, hotels, culture, theater, concerts, wellness and wellness alternatives, among others.
Now that connectivity through electronic devices is our window to the world, what better than to "showcase" the next vacation directly on the computer or cell phone screen. “We have a high-performance, fast and reliable platform, both for companies that promote their services and for users who seek them. “Our goal now is to test our new reservation technology within Latin America and ten destinations outside of it to convert a percentage of our visiting users to make their reservations directly with My Guide for restaurants, hotels, car rentals. and activities, ”explains Alexander De Mondey, My Guide's commercial director for Latin America.
But what is this platform specifically about? Similar to sites like Booking, oriented to the search and reservation of tourist services, My Guide differs from the competition by specializing in content management by local experts mixed with a global and real-time technological support structure. "Our local experts specialize in content, marketing, and sales, while the global technical team provides real-time support with the interaction between owners and local experts," adds De Mondey. This double function is achieved thanks to the SEO parameters that, on the one hand, are in charge of the site's structure, performance, reliability, scalability and, on the other hand, optimize the positioning of the sites, which is in charge of the parent company of My Guide.
