Editor’s Note: This post originally appeared on the blog of the hospitality digital marketing company, buuteeq, prior to its acquisition by Booking.com in June 2014. The opinions expressed here are specific to buuteeq, though many of the technology insights remain relevant to customers and admirers of our new business, BookingSuite, a unit of Booking.com.

Things are about to get a lot more awesome.
On June 10, buuteeq joined forces with The Priceline Group, one of the world’s leading Internet companies and the global leader in online accommodations.
This new strategic direction now vaults us into the best possible position for transforming the digital marketing experience for hotels worldwide.
The Priceline Group currently works with over 480,000 accommodations partners globally and is rapidly expanding the suite of products and services they offer to these hotel and accommodations partners.
With The Priceline Group’s global reach and buuteeq’s best-in-class hotel marketing platform, we’re uniquely poised to help many more properties perform their absolute best digitally.
I want to personally thank our customers who have believed in us and accompanied us on our journey leading up to this point. We remain devoted to our commitments to you.
Everything you love about buuteeq will either stay the same, or increase in awesomeness tenfold.
We will continue to be an independently managed brand building our product and services the way only buuteeq can.
The only thing that changes is our rate of innovation and ability to hire the sharpest minds in our field to provide you with the best-in-class hotel marketing platform available on the planet.
You can count on:
- The same service, prices, and support
- The same team and founders in place
- The same buuteeq customer promise
- The same data privacy.
- The same rights to your website and assets (your content is YOURS)
This is an exciting time and an immensely important milestone in buuteeq’s history!
We celebrated on June 10, as you can see here in our montage of photo booth pics, but were back to getting stuff done the next morning just as we’ve always done and will continue to do—just more awesomely.
