Travel-Technology Company Inn Style Growth Prompts Hi-Tech Office MoveJune 9, 2016
Inn Style, the Suffolk-based travel-technology company which provides online accommodation booking systems for the tourism industry, has moved to new premises in the Ross Building in line with growth and expansion plans.
Adrian Melrose, Inn Style CEO, says, “Moving into offices at Innovation Martlesham, Adastral Park, will mark the next step in the company’s development and enables it to better service its customer needs. It also allows Inn Style to affiliate with other organisations on the Innovation Martlesham site.”
Having grown to handle multi-million pounds worth of business, Inn Style is helping accommodation owners across the tourism industry to manage their businesses, add online availability calendars to their websites, take online bookings and offer consumers a simple and easy way of doing business with them.
Inn Style is a superb product that helps B&B, self-catering, hoteliers and campsite owners to boost business by providing a great experience for customers wishing to book a room quickly and without fuss. It enables owners to show availability, take bookings and payments quickly, easily and securely. With products for individual accommodation owners or group tourist associations such as Destination Management Organisations or Tourist Associations, Inn Style is a flexible, responsive and cost-effective solution to managing accommodation businesses.
The accommodation industry is worth billions of pounds, and the UK B&B Association estimates that the UK B&B space alone is worth well over £2bn. Yet it is littered with legacy software and clunky experiences for accommodation owners, guests, and anybody that tries to facilitate a relationship between the two – web designers, startup businesses, etc. The Inn Style founders were those web designers, desperately looking for something that they could recommend to their clients. They never found it, so they built it. The Inn Style team comprises of web developers James Kindred and Chris Waters, entrepreneur Adrian Melrose, customer support expert Emma Knight, head of sales Adam Clarke and head of external relations Fiona Johnson, who previously worked for The Suffolk Coast Ltd Destination Management Organisation and also ARM Ltd, the world’s leading semiconductor intellectual property (IP) supplier.
