HeBS Digital announces it has won a grand total of six 2013 WebAwards from the prestigious Web Marketing Association. The digital technology and marketing firm led the field in the “Hotel and Lodging” category, winning the Best Website Award for the new Crowne Plaza Times Square Manhattan site. Each of HeBS Digital’s winners employs responsive design on the server side (RESS) to enable a robust three-screen presence on desktop, tablet, and mobile platforms, as well as the industry’s leading Content Management System, the CMS Premium, providing innovative website architecture and ultra-fast download speeds. The winning sites’ visually appealing design is strategically employed to generate revenue for each respective client, making it easy for visitors to book via the technologically innovative sites. “These are not ordinary websites; they blend artistry, technology and functionality to generate significant online revenues for the property,” said Max Starkov, President & CEO of HeBS Digital. “The difference between an ordinary hotel website and a great website could be measured in hundreds of thousands of dollars of missed revenue a year. These six sites employ a smart digital strategy, and the awards bestowed upon them are a clear indication of their effectiveness.”
