MyJohannesburgInfo expands service with addition of new features

Published: Fri Jun 18 2010

MyJohannesburgInfo, leading travel website for the Johannesburg area, has announced a raft of new features to be introduced to the site in the second half of 2010.

The new features have been carefully researched and designed in order to maximise the ease of use and functionality of MyJohannesburgInfo and other sites on the MyDestinationInfo network. According to the owners, these new developments are all aimed at keeping the websites ahead of the competition, and they claim that "the second half of 2010 will see no respite in our dedication to innovating and improving the technology, applications and design of the website."

Among the most important of these developments is that of continual developments being implemented to the already established online travel booking engine. Over the coming weeks, the website will also be actively building important relationships with a number of key Johannesburg hotels and other accommodation options to source exclusive new deals. The net result of this will be an increased number of specials available exclusively to visitors of MyJohannesburgInfo, thus adding further incentive for visitors to utilise the website for bookings. The booking engine will also see new tweaks and adjustments designed to maximise its ease of use for users, with a new layout and navigation to be launched soon.

At the same time, the MyDestinationInfo group will continue to expand its multi-lingual options, and after the successful role out on partner sites, the entire MyDestinationInfo network will be receiving multi-lingual functionality. The MyJohannesburgInfo owners believe this will open up the website to visitors from around the world, offering all the features visitors have grown to love in their mother tongues.

MyJohannesburgInfo is also expanding its offerings on the multi-media front, and it will soon be able to offer spectacular 360 degree images of many Johannesburg restaurants, hotels and other establishments as an added benefit to advertisers and listed companies. This move is indicative of the website's desire to keep ahead of competitors, and soon visitors from around the world will be able to experience local attractions from the comfort of their homes.

Alongside these key website improvements will be various other additions, including the much-anticipated launch of smart phone applications and a comprehensive, secure online payment system, details of which will be released once the technologies are rolled out onto the network.

About was founded in 2006 by two young entrepreneurs Neil Waller and James Street. The key to the success of the network is the high level of support a committed team provides and the fantastic group of local franchisees who run their sites to the highest standards.

The two young entrepreneurs have reached the finals of a number of major competitions such as Online Business of the Year in the StartUps Awards 2009, Young Entrepreneur of the Year in the GBA Awards 2009, winners of the UKFAST 'Travel' Digital Entrepreneur of the Year Awards 2009 and the 2010 UK Trade & Investment London Exporters Award.
