The Groups and Events Booking Process is Broken
As a hotel sales manager can likely attest, the group and venue segment often represent an under-maximized revenue stream. The existing process of booking events and meetings is largely outdated, broken and still trapped within a manual format that creates a wealth of headaches and neglected leads for both planners and hotel sales managers. iVvy facilitates online group bookings and simplified eRFP requests. 

It also enables hotel sales managers to centralize, track and automate leads as well as related activities including marketing, contracts, tasks and follow-up. When the RFP process is streamlined effectively to provide immediate qualifying information, hotel sales managers can focus on the qualified leads and fast-track the confirmation process to forge a positive, profitable relationship.

Finally, Meeting and Event Spaces Can be Booked as Seamlessly as a Guest Booking a Room
With the implementation of iVvy’s innovative sales and catering venue management system, hotels can finally achieve global visibility for their venue while offering real-time availability, instant quotes and contracts, live booking, customizable menus, package options, 3D virtual tours and more on the hotel website. Much like the tools that exist for transient business, event planners can easily access everything they need to make an informed inquiry or reservation on the hotel website. Additionally, the latest online groups and events booking technology from iVvy allows properties to better merchandise and promote amenities while offering appealing F&B and AV upsell opportunities. 

Turn Your Business into a 24/7 Sales Machine
With improved group booking management comes increased customer retention, lower costs of acquisition, better customer experience, the ability to manage return on investment and the opportunity to connect directly with qualified planners that are ready and willing to confirm their reservation.
