Vancouver, British Columbia-based technology startup Event Temple launched its sales and catering software for hotels. The software is targeted to sales and catering managers who book group business, meetings and events.
“At this point, it really doesn’t matter what system your hotel is currently running,” Business Development Manager Bob Graham said in a statement. “If hotels aren't actively embracing new technology, then they are missing out on major opportunities for growth. There is a high cost in falling behind with respect to technology.”
This technology offers advanced sales tools such as automated email prospecting, electronic contracts and follow-up campaigns, all out of the box, the company said.
Event Temple’s main benefits include:
- New users can learn how to use the software in under an hour: This is important considering the average turnover at hotels is more than 50 percent for nonmanagers.
- The software increases revenue through its sales automation modules. Early users have seen reply rates increase by up to 80 percent, with revenue growing by up to 40 percent.
- Hotel staff save up to eight hours per week on administrative tasks with online proposals, digital signatures and banquet event orders.
Some of Event Temple’s early customers include DoubleTree By Hilton, Holiday Inn and Even Hotels.
