Top Rated James Hotel Group Drives New Business and Increases Productivity with Groupize Group Booking Engine Solution
Boston, MA, - August 5, 2014 With luxury hotels in Chicago, New York, and Miami, The James redefines luxury boutique hotels with its guest-centric service and thoughtful amenities. Now they are redefining world class service for groups with the launch of the award winning Groupize GBE (Group Booking Engine), the industry's most powerful group booking and management platform for independent properties, hotel groups, resorts and chains.
"Planners expect access to instant information on hotel websites and by implementing the GBE," explains Tom Botts, EVP and Chief Customer Officer at James Hotels. We are able to provide group travel planners with group rates and availability instantly, avoiding unnecessary delays caused by eRFP's and completely negating the need for planners to visit other websites."
Finally, the need for cumbersome, static eRFP forms is a thing of the past. Groupize Solutions has developed the most intuitive group booking engine (GBE) available today for the small to medium groups. Seamlessly branded to the hotel's website and tailored for groups, weddings, meetings, and more, the GBE is particularly innovative because it quotes dynamic group rates in real time to group planners. Whether it is rooms only or rooms and meeting space, the GBE increases conversions, guest experience and sales.
Groupize Solutions goes beyond bookings by offering the ultimate suite of productivity tools for Sales Managers with their Pipeline Response Manager (PRM), included with the GBE. Sales managers can use the dashboard to easily automate activities, handle reporting, send triggered emails, proposals and contracts, as well as track group demand. The increased efficiency of not having to waste time with the plethora of unqualified inquiries from different channels, enables sales staff to focus on personal service and winning business.
"By using our cloud-based GBE with integrated PRM, hotels can effectively get rid of the RFP for small and medium groups," says Charles de Gaspe Beaubien, President and CEO of Groupize Solutions. "The rich booking engine interface drives much higher conversion rates and the direct bookings reduce costly dependencies on third parties. It's a true win win for planners, guests and hotels."
