NAVIS adds 80 Reservation Sales Associates to serve growing client list
“NAVIS just wrapped up a very strong year. Our RezForce call center processed nearly half a million calls in 2013 – that is a 50% increase over 2012,” said Michelle Marquis, vice president – sales for NAVIS. “Lodging companies rely on our RezForce service for 24-hour reservation assistance, roll-over, and after-hours call response because we deliver very high conversion rates.” NAVIS added a total of 69 new clients in 2013.
RezForce delivers 50% reservation conversions for luxury hotel group
Pacific Hospitality Group (PHG) recently implemented NAVIS RezCast call services for its Meritage Collection, a 4-property luxury independent hotel group in California. Dave Gerdes, vice president of sales and marketing, said, “PHG wanted to combine reservations for all 4 properties in one office. We selected NAVIS RezCast to provide our 24-hour call center services because they were delivering significant returns for one of our properties deploying their call back program.” Pacific Hospitality Group went live with NAVIS across all its hotels in early January 2014. “Our conversions are nearly 70% at one property, and about 50% for our hotel group with a call abandonment rate of less than 3%. Those results will only improve over time. Plus, NAVIS’ outbound call-back program delivers many thousands of dollars in new revenue. NAVIS’ growth is a testament to their performance. We are looking to expand our relationship.”
NAVIS Tracking Makes Resort Promotions More Successful
Sterling Resorts Senior Vice President of Operations Ron Mote said, “NAVIS managed our roll-over and after-hours calls beginning in 2005. Today their RezForce service handles all our call center reservations and delivers conversions that average 37% in season. We committed to their services with an option to bring the service back in house, but because of YOY increases in both the call center and with outbound sales, we haven’t given it a second thought.” NAVIS’ services also help Sterling’s advertising be more effective. “Sterling Resorts is big into doing what closes sales. Our promotions are more successful because NAVIS links every dollar we make in reservations to the campaign that stimulated it. They do an excellent job for Sterling.”
