RFP Solution Services

Would you not prefer to sort out hotel procurement via the click of a button?
Do you often find that communicating with a large number of different hotels is a tough task?

Perhaps there is a lack of the necessary transparency when it comes to dealing with prices and conditions. Or you may simply feel that negotiations are too protracted and that the process costs are too high.


We’ll be honest. Requests for proposals don’t take care of themselves, even via ratefinding.com. But what our web-based procurement portal does is provide you with all the tools you need to achieve efficiency and success by conducting your hotel buying activities in a largely automated way. You will be able to invite hotels to submit their offers via the click of a button. You will receive identically structured offers which can be compared automatically, and thus achieve the best possible conditions. ratefinding.com provides you with a detailed summary of prices and numbers of overnight stays over the past two years. This will aid you in your price negotiations by giving access to specific and robust data across the whole of the procurement process.


We know that any online process is ultimately only as good as the people who stand behind it and will not leave you to deal with the intricacies of ratefinding.com on your own. We adapt the tool to your specific requirements and arrange for one of our Key Account Managers to provide you with all the support you need throughout the whole of the procurement procedure. We want you to receive the assistance you need when you need it.


If you prefer, you also have the option of delegating your entire hotel procurement process to us. RFP Consulting Solutions offers a consultancy solution that covers the whole of the value-added chain connected to the buying-in of hotel services.
