Over the past year, Bestnights Inc. completed Phase I of its goal by developing a brand new, custom-built hotel booking engine. The goal of the crowdfunding campaign is fund Phase II, which includes the new website’s launch, marketing, property registrations, and further site enhancements.

Website Design Standards
Bestnights.com was custom designed from the industry experience of co-founders Crystal and James with the technical expertise of their site developer. It has been designed to be extremely user-friendly on both the traveller side and the hotel administration side of the site. Bestnights is designed to be PCI compliant, an area in which the OTA community has struggled. PCI compliance is a list of standards that protects user’s information when being sent online. Through the use of Interfax, the company is able to ensure that the personal information of travellers is safe and secure online.
The well-being and support of children in need has been a dedicated area supported by both founders of Bestnights Inc, who have each volunteered at the Stollery Children's hospital radio-thon and hosted an annual charity golf tournament with proceeds going to children's charities. Bestnights is proud to bring that mission to another level as part of its business culture. Bestnights has chosen the International Make a Wish Foundation as its charity of choice.
The Indiegogo campaign’s initial goal of $150,000 is currently active and runs through June 16, 2014 at 11:59 Pacific Time. Full details about the Indiegogo campaign including sponsorship and involvement levels can be found at: http://igg.me/p/755999/x/7150592.
