Scarborough, ME, United States, 2006/12/23 - Summerfeet Maine Coast Cycling Adventures, provider of summer bike tours along the Maine coast and winter tours in New Zealand, improved their web presence this week by launching a redesigned site by Maine web development company Hall Marketing.
The launch highlights the growing importance of world wide web traffic on the tourism industry.
“We knew we’d want a Content Management System,” said Jonas Levasseur, Development Manager of the Project, “Using our product HMSolo, we were able to create live calendars that track the many bike tours Summerfeet operates during the busy summer season.”
Also included in the redesigned site are a full eCommerce solution, making booking bike trips online easy, and a more intuitive interface. “More and more people are expecting interactivity on their website,” Levasseur said, “No one wants a static page any more.”
Tourism is the largest industry in Maine, and the Internet has completely transformed how business is done. While many of Maine’s smaller tour companies have been lost in the rapid adoption of web technologies, others have eagerly moved into the online world and reaped significant returns due to their effort. Now, even those who have adopted websites are finding that web technology has changed so much that sites created even a year or two ago are inferior to the expectations of users today.
Summerfeet’s site updates reflect a commitment to providing the best service on all of their adventure biking tours. By harnessing new technologies, it is hoped that return guests will be served better than ever before and that more visitors are enchanted by their Maine seacoast bike trips.
