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 with our e-sourcing portal, you have all the tools in hand to make your hotel sourcing largely automated, efficient and successful:

  • You can invite hotels to submit offers at the touch of a button
  • You receive identically structured offers that can be compared automatically
  • You receive a detailed overview of prices and overnight stays over the last two years
  • You have access to tangible and resilient data for your price negotiations throughout the entire sourcing process
  • You thus achieve the best possible conditions

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.
