This re-design aligned the hotel booking system with the way the staff of August Jack actually uses the website.
In October of 2010, we built a fairly robust hotel booking site in Joomla!, with the Jomres reservation system. While the room inventory management system sounded like exactly what they wanted a few years back, handling the bookings on the Jomres system proved to be too great a departure from the manual system they had used for years, and the client updates simply weren't being made. The available room inventory shown on the site wasn't inaccurate.
It was decided, that a simpler solution was required; one that harmonized with the manual booking system. To keep expenses down, we utilized an off-the-shelf WordPress hotel theme, and added custom styling to match the company's look and feel. I also shot most of the photographs as a value added bonus.
