Groupize offers Group Sales & Catering Systems for hotels on a complimentary basis through January 2014.

Groupize today unveiled the Groupize PRM (Planner Relationship Manager), a cloud based Sales and Catering System for hotels to efficiently manage their online and offline demand for Groups and Meetings.

The Groupize PRM empowers Hotel Chains and Hotel Sales Teams to efficiently manage their group sales process from end to end by centralizing all leads and all groups in a single dashboard. The cloud based PRM includes an intuitive user friendly graphical interface, the ability to manage automated group bookings and RFPs from multiple channels, end to end groups’ business intelligence and sales automation designed to save hours of time and effort for hotel sales staff while increasing conversions and revenue.

“Speed wins Groups” says Groupize CEO, Charles de Gaspe Beaubien. “Hotels that answer group requests within 5 minutes convert 22 times more than those that answer after 24 hours. The Groupize PRM was designed to allow hotels to respond to significantly more qualified inquiries via their computer or Ipad in seconds vs. days. We continue our efforts to make hotels more efficient at converting online Group business and we are honored to be recognized as one of the most innovative travel companies of the year at the 2013 PhoCusWright Innovation Summit,” continued de Gaspe Beaubien.

The Groupize PRM is the latest solution in the Groupize Platform and is fully integrated with Groupize Live, the companies white label application that powers group bookings on hotel and travel websites. The PRM includes an automated quoting engine, a quote and proposal generator, and business rules and the ability to communicate directly with the group planner including notes, attachments and action triggered emails.

Individual hotels can obtain the Groupize PRM starting at an introductory price of just $59 per month, a fraction of the cost of current tools in the marketplace. The ease of use and the low price point allows thousand of limited service hotels that previously didn’t have Group sales automation to become automated. Hotels participating in the Groupize Network, the company’s distribution arm, also have complimentary access to the Groupize PRM to manage all group reservations generated by the Network.

Groupize is offering hotels use of the Groupize PRM for their own group leads on a complimentary basis until January 31, 2014. Interested hotels simply need to email hotels(at)groupize(dot)com for this very special offer.

“Small group bookings (typically five to 25 hotel rooms) generate $35 billion in sleeping room revenue for U.S. hotels and haven’t been serviced appropriately until this date and we plan to change that. Our vision is that we will bring major efficiencies to the industry and that more planners and hotels will actually enjoy the process of transacting groups.” Charles de Gaspe Beaubien, Founder and CEO of Groupize.

Demo’s will be offered in the Groupize Booth at PhoCusWright or on request at hotels(at)groupize(dot)com.
