New site revolutionizes the way Tour Operators and travel agents requiring more than 5 hotel rooms can shop, plan and book those hotel rooms at special group pricing, eliminating all off-line barriers that now constrain the $35B domestic market.
BERLIN, GERMANY and BOSTON, MASS. – On stage at [email protected] Groupize President and CEO Charles de Gaspe Beaubien announced the launch of Groupize.com, an innovative online group hotel booking site, “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.”
Innovative technology ensures that Groupize.com is the fastest and best way for travel professionals to book 5 or more hotel rooms in North America, a $35B domestic 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 for Tour Operators and Travel Agents at Groupize.com/traveltrade.
Groupize.com offers real-time pricing and group deals from a wide selection of group-friendly hotels for planners of leisure, corporate and affinity travel. Groupize has simplified and improved the notoriously frustrating user experience for professional travel planners by automating all of the tasks involved in planning and booking groups online. Professional Group Planners save time by getting results in one click, as the site eliminates the need to fill out RFP’s for small groups, make endless phone calls and wait days for responses.
Additional differentiators from the current solutions in the marketplace include published “Groupize Deals”, negotiated Group Deals for Groups, Meetings and Events from thousands of hotels and commissionable rates.
Groupize C.O.O. Alisa de Gaspe Beaubien stated their commitment to the Travel Industry, “To showcase our recognition of professional travel planners during our launch, Groupize will offer a bonus commission on all group bookings made on Groupize.com between March 5 and May 31, 2014. In addition to saving astronomical amounts of time and effort while booking a group hotel rooms, travel professionals will be supported by our call center of experienced group travel experts to assist them every step of the way and also get great group deals for their clients”, stated de Gaspe Beaubien.
