Lodging Interactive announced that it has launched a new Web service geared towards generating group leads for hotels.

RFPLink.com is a free service which powers hotel Web sites with the ability to process group lead requests from consumers and meeting planners.

“RFPLink.com enables a hotel to capture more group requests on its Web site.  Our research indicates that over 90 percent of the hotel Web sites in North America do not have an online group RFP forum for prospective meeting and group organizers to communicate with the hotel online.  RFPLink.com is a free tool which fills this need and enables hotels to capture group leads,” said DJ Vallauri, Lodging Interactive’s founder and president. 
RFPLink.com provides automated monthly reports which recap the previous month’s group lead activities so no business opportunity is left unattended.  In addition, hotels can designate up to 10 sales people to receive the group RFP leads all in real time.

Richard Walsh, vice president of business development for Lodging Interactive said, “No matter the size of your hotel, what group or meeting services you offer or whether your brand provides RFP leads, adding the Lodging Interactive RFPlink.com to your property Web site will help you capture more online group business.  Whether it is a five-person business meeting or a 500-person conference, it works for you and it’s free.  If your hotel is a brand hotel and you don’t have a property Web site, you need to re-evaluate your online marketing strategy.  You can open a whole new sales channel with a property Web site and by just adding a simple link to your Web site, you are opening a new sales channel. The group and meeting business is a booming multibillion dollar business and most of the business is found online.

“RFPLink.com not only offers sales leads, it tracks and reports on the RFP’s that you receive," Walsh said.  "Plus your RFPLink.com will deliver the completed request to as many as ten people for input and follow up to include in your response.  RFPLink.com is also an ideal extension to the Lodging Interactive eProposal Sales System.  Our eProposal Sales System will close your RFPlink requests faster and more professionally.”
