Berlin, Germany and Boston, Mass., (PRWEB) March 06, 2014
Groupize, Inc. today announced the launch of Groupize.com, an innovative online group hotel booking site. Innovative technology ensures that Groupize.com is the fastest and best way to plan and book 5 or more hotel rooms, a $35B US market largely unaddressed until now.
Previously focused on developing cloud based technology solutions for hotels and hotel chains to manage their group business, Groupize is now surfacing and showcasing their award winning travel technology directly to occasional and professional group travel planners on Groupize.com.
Groupize.com offers real-time pricing and group deals from a wide selection of group-friendly hotels for planners of meetings, events, conferences, weddings, tours, sporting events and leisure travel. Planners save time by getting results in one click, without extensive forms, phone calls and delays. By automating all of the tasks involved in planning and booking group hotels online, Groupize simplifies and improves a notoriously frustrating user experience for occasional and professional planners, and enables them to take advantage of exclusive Groupize Deals from thousands of hotels.
On stage at PhoCusWright@ITB Groupize President and CEO Charles de Gaspe Beaubien shared: “The launch of our own site complements our existing suite of solutions. Groupize.com offers the best user experience in the industry for planners, and as a result, increases group revenues and decreases distribution expenses for our partner hotels.”
Groupize is primed to become the premier automated solution for the North American Hotel Group Travel Industry. “Groups typically represent 30% of a hotel’s revenue and hotels are the #1 online travel buy. We are making the connection between groups and bookings online, a connection that did not exist until Groupize,” de Gaspe Beaubien noted.
Groupize also offers solutions for affiliates, providing seamless integration through private label, co-branded and white-label revenue generating offerings for large, small and specialty travel websites.
All solutions are supported by a US based call center of expert group travel planners. Support services are designed to help users of Groupize.com, including hotel partners and group travel planners, handle special requests and more complex group hotel room needs.
As of to today’s launch, more than 12,000 North American hotels have registered to be premier partners with Groupize, complementing their inventory of more than 30,000 hotels worldwide. Groupize anticipates more than 22,000 North American hotel partners by year end.
Groupize is the group hotel booking platform. Our innovative, award-winning technology solutions auto-mate all of the tasks involved in planning and booking groups online. We simplify the entire process for occasional and professional planners, and empower hotels and affiliate partners to win more group busi-ness. Our technology is powering group bookings and meetings for one of the world's largest hotel chains, and is emerging as a platform of choice for major hotel chains and travel web sites. Groupize won the 2013 PhoCusWright Award for most Innovative Travel Technology Company Emerging Category.
