The following post is from Cece Salomon-Lee, who oversees our product marketing:
Today, we are excited to announce the availability of our new ACTIVE MarketView 3.0, a new, easier-to-use, intuitive RFP Management tool that enables hotel and venue sales teams to easily review, manage and respond to eRFPs up to 70% faster*.
Overview of Key eRFP Management Features
Part of the SMART EVENTS™ Cloud, ACTIVE MarketView, formerly StarCite® MarketView, features a completely redesigned, intuitive user interface and navigation structure to make it easier for hotel and venue sales organizations review, manage and respond to eRFPs quickly, including:
- Single-Response Page: We’ve redesigned the eRFP process into one, easy-to-review and complete single-response page. Your sales organization can now easily answer any part of the eRFP in any order – without having to follow a wizard. By clicking on any section in the redesigned left-hand navigation, you will automatically be taken to that section.
- Pre-populated answers: In addition to a single-response page, we’ve also added pre-populated eRFP answers that will cut down on time spent editing, allowing you to send fast and accurate replies to buyers up to 70% faster and in far fewer clicks!
- Favorite Responses: “Favorite” responses, such as responses for specific clients and their unique questions, information about meeting location specifications, default language, and default currency, can be set up and saved under the admin page. Additionally, answers to eRFP questions are automatically saved for future use.
Start Responding Faster Today
In addition to responding to eRFPs more easily and quickly, ACTIVE MarketView also connects buyers from Small- to Mid-sized Businesses (SMBs), associations and Fortune 500 companies with properties in ACTIVE’s supplier marketplace, comprising hundreds of thousands of hotels and venues around the world.
Get started today, and we’re more than happy to answer your questions and receive your feedback as the new application becomes available today.
I think David O’Donohoe, General Manager, Suppliers with ACTIVE Network Business Solutions, sums it up best:
“Our goal is to provide suppliers with technology that gives them time back in their day to focus on high-value activities, such as building relationships with customers. By making it quick and easy to accurately respond to eRFPs in a single page with pre-populated answers, ACTIVE MarketView 3.0 meets these needs.”
