Convert More Groups and Increase Engagement
Groups remain a vital source of income for destinations as well as theater, sports, attractions, restaurants, and other ticketed events. GroupTools helps you keep group-buying easy for your organizers and solves your supplier-side challenges of group booking.
Embrace the Shift to Digital
As sales strategies have evolved, the "best practices'' for handling group sales remain stagnant. Technology is not being used to fix the problems faced in group travel or to empower group organizers.
Digitally-enabled sales interactions are twice as important to today’s customers as traditional sales interactions. Embrace the digital shift and let GroupTools transform your group sales and booking process for the better.
How It Works
Craft Your Packages
Quickly and easily create templates
that you can provide to your organizers
to promote your business

then complete a simple one-click process
to provide them with the event.
When you transfer an event to your organizers, you’re also providing them with a full suite of planning and management tools for their group. Your organizers will love having a better way to organize their group.
GroupTools provides opportunities for increased engagement with your group organizers, adding an essential touchpoint to your group sales process. As well, with your control over your group events, each group buyer will be engaging with your brand from the moment they’re invited to the event.
