RCI POINTS® MEMBERS CAN NOW BOOK ON THE GO THROUGH MOBILE VERSION OF RCI.COM
PARSIPPANY, N.J. (November 13, 2012) — RCI, the global leader in vacation exchange, is continuing its series of industry-first technology innovations with the next phase of its mobile website, which now allows RCI Points® subscribing members to complete transactions, including confirming and booking vacations, from their smartphone devices.
“At RCI, we are always striving to leverage the latest technologies, like this website for smartphones, to make our members’ lives easier and to give our affiliated resorts a competitive advantage,” said Gordon Gurnik, president, RCI. “We are tailoring our web presence to the needs of an increasingly mobile consumer audience with this site, which can be accessed on the go from anywhere smartphones can be used.”
When RCI® members visit RCI.com from a smartphone, they will find a site that can be easily viewed and used on the smaller screen of a mobile device. They will also find it simple to navigate the site for convenient access to the tools and services available to members on the traditional website.
With this latest technology innovation, both RCI® Weeks and RCI Points® members can now book vacations on the go wherever they are, whenever they want. This added functionality joins what is already available to all members on the mobile website, which is the first of its kind in the industry. Members can access account information in real time, search for vacation options, deposit weeks, view and confirm vacations on hold, view the status of ongoing searches, browse recommendations from other users, and view confirmed vacations and saved searches.
