The Sonesta Collection Adopts SpeedRFP to Power the eRFP Process
February 24, 2014 6:14am
51 of its Domestic, International, and Extended Stay Hotels Implementing SpeedRFP
The Sonesta Collection joins some of the world's most recognized brands and independent hotels currently utilizing SpeedRFP technology to power their websites' electronic RFP processes for meetings, incentives, special events and weddings. By adopting the system, the Sonesta Collection will raise its visibility among SpeedRFP's more than 90,000 buyer members, while allowing first-time users to efficiently submit and manage RFPs in just a few clicks. In the past 12 months alone, SpeedRFP was used to submit more than 53,000 unique RFPs.
Along with powering the Sonesta.com brand portal, SpeedRFP will be utilized for 51 individual Sonesta websites, ranging from such full-service domestic hotels as the Royal Sonesta New Orleans and Sonesta Resort Hilton Head Island to extended stay all-suite hotels throughout the U.S., and international properties located in Chile, Columbia, Ecuador, Egypt, Panama, Peru, and St. Maarten.
"We are very happy that the Sonesta Collection selected SpeedRFP to power the Sonesta.com portal," said Kelly Foy, CEO of EMI. "Planners who are ready to submit eRFPs for their incentive groups and meetings will have an intuitive, seamless experience when requesting and managing proposals from Sonesta properties located in the U.S. and abroad."
"At Sonesta we were looking for an eRFP tool that was intuitive to the end-user and would help our customers get their RFPs to us more efficiently and effectively. What we have with SpeedRFP is all of that, plus coveted access to planners using the SpeedRFP Network. The exposure for our brand in partnership with Elite has already resulted in an increase of high-quality group leads for Sonesta," said Carol Bullock, VP of Sales."
Along with Sonesta's corporate and individual sites, SpeedRFP can currently be found on hundreds of individual hotel sites, including: Atlantis, Paradise Island; Bacara Resort & Spa; Grand Wailea, A Waldorf Astoria Resort; Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Las Vegas; InterContinental Dallas; Kingsmill Resort & Spa; and Wynn Las Vegas and Encore at Wynn Las Vegas.
