As a result of the pandemic, hotels and meeting planners increasingly are looking at ways to automate manual tasks and improve efficiency. Groups360 has embraced this unique opportunity to provide technology solutions for hotels that need to do more with less. We launched GroupSync Engage, the first direct booking solution for groups on the market, in October 2020. The downturn has fueled our drive to expedite our applications so that we can try to help the industry return in a more efficient and effective way.
Sales partnership between Groups360 and RainFocus creates a comprehensive event life-cycle management solution for event planners.
