Don Bundock, President of Quality Track International says “Competitors group rates and pricing strategy are the most difficult pieces of competitive intelligence for a hotel to obtain. Group rates are not published in any electronic system and can only be accurately obtained by systematically ‘shopping the competition.’ We make it simple to obtain a clear view of your competitor’s rates and pricing strategy.”

The GroupMetrix group rate shopping service uses elaborate corporate identities to facilitate realistic shop calls to uncover the competitor’s true rates.
Customer Price Resistance:  Real customers do not accept the first rate offered. Real customers “push back” on pricing and so do GroupMetrix shoppers. The rates offered in response to the price-resistance, and the amounts by which the rates are reduced when pressured provide valuable insight into competitor’s rates and pricing strategy.

GroupMetrix CompSet Group-Rate Reports provide unparalleled insight into competitors’ rates and pricing strategy and include all the rate components that factor into a group or meeting quotation: room rates, inclusions, in-room internet, catering (breakfast, breaks, luncheon and dinner), meeting room rates, AV rates, meeting room internet rates, minimum F&B guarantees, comp rooms, upgrades and master bill discounts. The rate reports include the initial set of rates offered plus any rate reductions resulting from the rate-resistance.

“We have the ability to obtain a full set of group rates from any hotel in the world.” says Bundock “Our extensive investment in systems to manage the complexities of this process enables us to offer the GroupMetrix service at a remarkably low price.”

The GroupMetrix service includes 2 rate shops per month on each of 4 competitors, for a total of 8 rate shops. The total cost is just $129 per month.
