Knowland Named in 20 Most Promising Travel and Hospitality Tech Solution Providers for 2019

USA, Arlington, Virginia. November 12, 2019

Knowland, a hospitality industry leader in meetings market data and analytics for hotels, convention and visitor bureaus (CVBs), convention centers and other meeting venues, today announced it has been recognized among the elite group of technology solution providers featured in the Travel and Hospitality Tech special edition of CIOReview magazine and solidifies Knowland's position as the leader in group business.

"We are glad to recognize Knowland as one of the 20 Most Promising Travel and Hospitality Tech Solution Providers - 2019," said Justin Smith, Managing Editor of CIOReview. "By combining analytics with the industry's largest historical database of actualized events, the company provides its customers with actionable insights that help drive more revenue, accelerate the sales cycle, and optimize profits. At the forefront of tackling such pressing problems in the travel and hospitality space, CIOReview has nominated Knowland as an innovative leader."

In a recent article in CIOReview magazine, Robert Post, CEO of Knowland, highlighted how technology has been a double-edged sword for hotels and planners alike. Knowland recognizes that the ease with which inbound RFPs can be created and distributed is causing more problems than it solves. "Processing the deluge of inbound leads has brought group sales teams to their knees. Salespeople spend more time reacting to the increasing volume of often unqualified leads than responding to them in a thoughtful way, not to mention the cost of acquisition is eroding hotel's profitability. Shifting to a Proactive Group Sales Strategy, rather than a reactive, inbound approach, gives the hotel control of the group sales pipeline, boosts repeat business and optimizes profitability. The Knowland platform with SmartSearch is leading the way," stated Post.

"We are excited to be listed in the top 20 Most Promising Travel and Hospitality Tech Solution Providers - 2019 from CIOReview. Knowland is the first in the hospitality industry to use predictive, innovative technology to conduct a targeted, relevant search for group business specific to a hotel's attributes and preferences. Knowland's SmartSearch functionality enables hotels to get ahead of the RFP process by sourcing "best-fit" group prospects and yielding up to a 10x return to the hotel," stated Michael Sherman, VP Engineering with Knowland.

Coming up in April 2021...

Guest Service: Health and Safety First

Though expectations are that hotels will return to some semblance of normalcy in 2021, their highest priority must continue to be the health and safety of guests and employees. To that end, hotels are training their guest service personnel in enhanced cleaning routines, which include the following practices - bathrooms, elevator buttons, remote controls and other high-touch items, are disinfected and cleaned with a higher frequency; all tables, chairs and menus in restaurants are cleaned at a much higher frequency, and after each seating; floor markers in public areas to remind guests and team members to maintain physical distance; hand alcohol stations and disposable gloves in lobbies and restaurants; loose items such as pens, note pads and information material removed from rooms and meeting rooms; limiting the number of seats in restaurants and public areas; and revised food & beverage offerings. The April issue of the Hotel Business Review will review how guest service personnel are being trained to maintain health and safety protocols in their operations.
