Groupize.com introduces real-time bookings and new demand for small group and meeting business online, bringing more revenue to participating hotels and reducing the requirement to respond to eRFPs

BOSTON, Mass., May 20, 2014 - Groupize today announced the eagerly anticipated launch of Instant Bookings on Groupize.com and the affiliate sites powered by its white label solution. Now online planners of groups, meetings, events, weddings, tours and sporting events can benefit from the ease of shopping, booking and managing their group room blocks in real-time.   

Groups and meetings planners appreciate the simplicity of the mobile-first booking experience that replaces the decade's old process of eRFPs.  Hotels taking advantage of the Groupize Instant Book Program are given priority placement on all sites.  Both large chains and high touch independents appreciate the supplier-friendly model of capturing qualified small group bookings in real-time as opposed to working unqualified leads. Hotels wanting to generate more group business and benefit from the award-winning group booking technology can contact hotels(at)groupize.com.

"We have listened to the industry's complaints from other systems spamming hotels with boundless unqualified RFPs," stated Groupize C.O.O. Alisa de Gaspe Beaubien.  "Over the last four years, we engineered a platform where planners can check rates, availability and even book small meetings in real-time. Groupize is helping Hoteliers get their balanced share of group business by offering direct bookings solutions for their website while also giving them access to new channels efficiently."

Small groups are big business, and the Groupize Instant Booking technology can automate two-thirds of the group market that is currently transacted offline, representing $25B annually in the U.S. alone.  Comprised of three integrated solutions to manage the complete lifecycle of a group, Groupize technology handles pricing, inventory and room assignments through two-way integration to existing hotel systems - easing the operational burden on hotels of managing small group business.
