No other Sales and Catering System can do what hotel SalesPro does
“We installed hotel SalesPro at all our properties to unify our sales efforts on one cloud system across multiple states and multiple brands. No other sales system can do this,” said Matthew Jones, Vice President, Sales and Marketing select service hotels for Stonebridge Companies. “We have 80-room Hampton Inns and 300-room Sheratons; hotel SalesPro adapts and improves the sales processes at all our hotels, regardless of size.” Stonebridge holds franchise licenses with Hilton Hotels, Marriott International, Starwood Hotels and Resorts and the InterContinental Hotel Group. Brands include aloft, Courtyard, Doubletree Hotel, Embassy Suites, Fairfield Inn and Suites, Hampton Inn, Hampton Inn & Suites, Hilton Garden Inn, Holiday Inn Express, Homewood Suites, Residence Inn, Sheraton Hotel and SpringHill Suites.

hotel SalesPro helps sales teams close more business
“hotel SalesPro enables our numerous sales teams to access share national account information between all our properties. Our sales people coordinate corporate contacts, contract information, and local negotiated rates between hotels and coordinate activity to close more business,” Jones said. hotel SystemsPro hosts Stonebridge’s account data, ensuring the information is secure and available 24/7. “We have many users at many properties. With hotel SalesPro our data is quickly accessed from anywhere. The cloud platform makes it possible for our sales people and me to access account information with our tablets or smartphones while meeting with clients. Remote account access is extremely valuable and helps us close more business.”

Stonebridge recently moved its sales activities off a different application. “Our previous system could not deliver the multi-property cloud functionality we needed for remote access and cross-selling. Just as important, hotel SalesPro’s license agreement is more flexible and lets us deploy the system to all our hotels more cost-effectively for wider use.” Jones added that hotel SalesPro interfaces to Stonebridge’s Hilton, IHG, and other brand property management systems to simplify operations at all hotels.

Stonebridge also benefits from hotel SalesPro’s online video training program to learn the system quickly. “The online training is professional and flexible and designed for busy sales people. My teams can train at their office and pause a training video if they have to break away to handle a client. hotel SystemsPro awards a training-completion certification when a person is fully versed in the system, so I know who is able to use their tools effectively.”

hotel WebSpace gives Stonebridge properties stronger search ranking
Stonebridge attracts new business to its hotels with hotel WebSpace, hotel SalesPro’s internet prospecting and property landing page solution. “Our properties use hotel WebSpace to build landing pages that catch the attention of travelers coming to our markets for events or to visit area businesses or attractions. hotel WebSpace comes at no cost with hotel SalesPro and gives our properties higher ranking on Google searches.”
