for Hospitality Industry
Cost-saving Package Brings Knowland
Products Together to Support
Business Development Process from Start to Finish
|Salisbury, MD, February 1, 2010 – The
Knowland Group, a leading provider of sales and marketing solutions
for the global hospitality industry, today introduced a new business development
suite. The Knowland
BDS combines powerful lead generation tools with telesales support,
sales force automation, and meetings management to increase group business
at hotels of every size and type.
“True business development should amount to more than a lot of guesswork and competing ideas,” said Knowland Group CEO Michael K. McKean. “The Knowland BDS gives hotel sales teams all the tools they need to determine potential business, develop and execute a successful strategy, and evaluate and adjust their tactics.”
The process begins with Readers, Knowland’s database of more than 250,000,000 events held by groups at hotels across the globe. Insight‘s powerful search engine and mapping tool mines that database to provide customized leads for every hotel. Knowland’s highly trained telesales team, the Event Booking Center, works behind the scenes upon specific order, to conduct research and augment sales team’s efforts. Target Net then takes it to the next step by giving sales teams a place to manage their entire process from lead generation to contacting prospects, booking groups, and managing events.
The Knowland Group offers five different versions of the BDS to best serve every client from big box hotels to select service properties. Multi-property discounts give brands and ownership and management companies to chance to save even more.
During these difficult economic times, hotels must go after new industry segments and developing markets for their group business. The Knowland BDS empowers sales teams to not only find these groups, often completely off their radar, but also quickly and easily bring that new business to their property.
