Pioneering technology and commitment to innovation
In line with its commitment to continuous innovation, Roiback has launched during the first semester of 2019 the new version of its booking engine, BackHotel 5.0. In addition, it has recently announced its integration with Book on Google (BoG), the function of the technological giant that allows to make hotel reservations without leaving the search engine. Thanks to this agreement, Roiback customers will benefit from higher conversion rates and lower acquisition costs, as well as being able to enter less accessible markets until now.
Among the latest features that Roiback has launched this year is the room upgrade system or meal plan, which allows the users to improve their reservations before entering the hotel with a single click, and this contributes to increase the income per reservation for the hotelier.

In the last three years, it has multiplied by five its number of employees and already has a portfolio of more than 1,500 customers spread over 50 countries worldwide.
