AMSTERDAM, July 18th, 2023 - As Meetingselect, we’re excited to announce our partnership with hivr.ai, a prominent technological leader in the hospitality sector. Their AI-powered capabilities help streamline the next generation’s booking processes and increase productivity. We're looking forward to the amazing synergy that will result from our collaboration.
Meetingselect and hivr.ai formed this strategic relationship to redefine venue booking experiences through advanced automation and dynamic pricing solutions. The partnership promises real-time RFP replies within Meetingselect's platform, made possible by hivr.ai's cutting-edge technology. The alliance offers time savings and resource optimization by automating calculations for inventory, pricing, and other critical data synchronized across many portals and business applications. This unique approach not only reduces the chance of manual errors, but it also addresses the industry's pressing worry of personnel shortages, allowing teams to focus on essential client interaction and care.
Enhanced processes increase communication between venues and bookers, enabling them to exceed client expectations. Response rates, operational efficiency, and income will improve by automating repetitive operations such as capacity checks, tailoring follow-up emails, and merging all RFPs into a single interface. The AI-powered pricing system ensures a real-time, global approach to automatically sending RFP bids, hence improving the booking process. This combination of automation and personal touch represents a significant leap in the MICE business towards more efficient and customer-oriented service.
Judith Huisman, Co-Founder of Meetingselect, mentioned: "We integrate with hivr.ai with much excitement! With this technology, both our venues and bookers can leverage a more adept booking experience with faster access to accurate and real-time information on available venues, pricing, and availability. Collaborating with hivr.ai and other companies helps us advance our platform. It allows us to provide bookers with a true all-in-one service for all their meeting and event needs."
