“Performance levels for hotel group and meeting revenue within the industry will often come down to how efficient your sales team can be,” said Bob Graham, Co-founder of Event Temple, “You are always competing against time. We built Event Temple software to create time for hotel sales professionals by making each step of the sales process easier, from pipeline trace management, through added group blocks, to group resumes, banquet event orders, contracts, and digital signatures. Our difference is an advanced task automation system and a user interface design that a hotel’s staff can learn to use in hours, not weeks.”
“Integration with the StayNTouch PMS adds another layer of sales efficiency to our efforts,” Graham continued, “Sales professionals can now check room availability without having to open the PMS and can likewise automatically push room blocks and meeting space reservations into the PMS seamlessly. This integration translates into more time to prospect and a hotel’s staff can learn to use in hours, not weeks.”

- Rover PMS™: Next generation Hotel PMS, fully cloud, fits on every device, optimizes hotel operations from front desk, to groups, to housekeeping to revenue management. Simple monthly pricing that includes training, integrations, and configuration.

“The team at Event Temple has been great to work with,” said Jos Schaap, CEO-Founder of StayNTouch, “We share the same belief that consumer-grade interface design for business applications will make a happier and more efficient staff. The pairing of these two systems will be very popular in the marketplace.”
