The Golden Nugget Las Vegas hotel and casino has leveraged Knowland’s historical database of actualized events to amplify its group sales and prioritize leads.

The Golden Nugget has 37,000 square feet of function space, 10 restaurants and more than 2,400 rooms. Although the hotel has relied on Knowland’s search and analytics software for some time, the staff now sees the tool as a key sales strategy to enhance its profitability through the prioritization of leads during this downturn.
 
By comparing potential accounts with a property’s attributes, sales teams can surface leads that are most likely to book new business. Through its real-time search and analytics technology, Knowland’s event database is a direct line to building a robust sales pipeline.

“Hidden gem” account leads streamline the process of identifying the right customer. Seventy percent of users have reported discovering qualified prospects they wouldn’t have found otherwise. The sales process includes active prospecting and is a key strategy for Golden Nugget sales teams. By using Knowland’s data-driven intelligence and reporting functionality, sales staff have the knowledge they need to turn cold calls into warm calls using account details found in the database, accelerating the sales cycle and increasing efficiency.
