RoomFT, THE Couchsurfing Alternative, Offers More to Travellers and Hosts

Published on February 28, 2011

RoomFT, a site built by web developers Ampheon, launched a new website update this week to give hosts and travellers even more options and security when looking to rent a room or find a place to stay. The latest features include:

  • Paying in advance for rooms and accommodation booked with the payments held by RoomFT until after the stay.
  • A member reward scheme where RoomFT will pay hosts for recommending other hosts to the site. According to RoomFT’s calculations, an active host could earn up to £12,500 (or 16,000 Euro) a year.
  • A partner reward scheme, where in return for placing a banner or link on a web site, a website owner can earn a percentage of the booking fees made by a referral.
  • Friend finder system, where members can automatically import their contacts from Yahoo, Gmail and other email accounts and invite them to join or link up with them if they’re already on the site.
  • A considerable number of social networking enhancements, support enhancements, currency additions, and security and fraud protection measures introduced.

RoomFT allows hosts with spare rooms in their house to rent them by the night to travellers, who pay a fee in return. The RoomFT site facilitates all elements of the interaction between host and traveller including an availability calendar, online booking, payment escrow, ratings and reviews, and some social networking features.

LCCI Launch the Business Advice Surgery

Published on May 3, 2010

The London Chamber of Commerce officially launched the Online Business Advice Surgery today, giving members access to free advice, information resources and tailored answers to questions on issues affecting their businesses. Whether members need help with legal issues, sourcing funding and grants, marketing campaigns or a second opinion on HR procedures, the London Chamber of Commerce doctors are available via the Online Business Advice Surgery to asssit.

The Online Business Advice Surgery was a custom web development by Ampheon, who scoped, designed and developed the successful solution for the Chamber's members. This is a project we were particularly proud to be involved in, and it involved some complex technical challenges - all of which were successfully overcome.

Approved Business officially launched their Company Review system today. Approved Business offers a service where companies can list their products and services, as well as publish press releases.

We encourage you to take a look at the new review system at www.approvedbusiness.co.uk. You may also like to consider listing your organisation with Approved Business to broaden the visibility of your own web site.

Approved Business is a leading UK business to business directory. This directory covers highly targeted industry sectors, lists over 10,000 products and services and has in excess of half a million Google impressions every month, and growing!

Ampheon were commissioned several years ago to create a new web site concept that would lead the company forwards, particularly on the search engines. We continue to do this through a series of ongoing, rolling web site updates and improvement with many new and exciting, industry-leading features to be introduced in 2010.
