Please describe your company and your position there.
Zoku is named "one of the world's 25 best hotels" according to Forbes. It's a hybrid between a place to live and to work, for people visiting from 3 days to 3 months. I was the Commercial Director at Zoku.
For what projects/services did your company hire UP Hotel Agency?
Up was hired to design, develop, and maintain our website. We wanted to make sure that we had a leading website that was fast, guest-friendly with a stunning design. The challenge was to create a timeless design and to increase website conversion.
What were your goals for this project?
The website should be scalable to new locations, fast, timeless design, in line with the brand and with a set page designs.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?
Project management was very effective. No large project management teams and lengthy reports but instead great use of online tools and frequent update sessions with the team.
What did you find most impressive about this company?
The Up team is just a breath of fresh air to work with. They understand your needs, they have a large understanding of the industry, they will be honest and direct to you (which we Dutchies love), they are flexible and have a great sense of humor and use their vast experience and knowledge to create stunning websites, booking engines and more.
Are there any areas for improvement?
It might sound weird but they should increase their prices a bit. We were doubting a little when they were cheaper than the competition.
