to Monitor Social Media Content

Dallas, Texas, October 27, 2008 -- Hostmark Hospitality Group (HHG) will partner with the Dallas-based Standing Dog Interactive to manage social media content through Standing Dog's ReviewAnalyst application.

ReviewAnalyst collects hotel reviews, blog entries, videos and photos from top travel and social media sites and provides guidance on how to respond to both positive and negative content. Additionally, ReviewAnalyst is a valuable research tool that offers rating and ranking comparisons with a hotel's top competitors. 

Brian Tkac, Vice President of Marketing & Revenue for HHG states, "We have learned that online reviews can impact the bottom line; therefore it's become a priority for our hotels to monitor and manage consumer generated content. ReviewAnalyst makes it easy for our hotel executives to keep an eye on everything in one location and respond where appropriate."

According to Mike Wylie, President of Standing Dog Interactive, "Consumer-generated content has become a key element of a traveler's decision-making process. Hoteliers now find themselves trying to keep track of information from multiple sources. Review Analyst facilitates this process by providing a dashboard of information in one easy-to-use location."
