Award-winning: Homepage builder LivePages by STRATO
Tourism is one of the main revenue drivers on the Internet. More and more Internet users plan and book their travels online.

These customers now profit from the cooperation between STRATO and protel: The integration of protel`s web-based hotel management and booking software bookatonce now allows businesses to be bookable online even easier and more conveniently.
With bookatonce, LivePages customers can now integrate a graphic availability calendar into their website displaying which rooms are available and when. It’s quick, easy and it’s free. This exclusive offer for LivePages customers additionally includes an individually configurable room rate list and a booking wizard.
