Graduate Hotels Releases TrueTour Across Full Portfolio
Visiting Media's TrueTour™ sales tool is being leveraged across 21 Graduate Hotels’ properties with top-to-bottom 360°, 3D and virtual reality presentation and delivery technology. The solution is expected to make it easier to upsell boutique rooms and suites, sell event spaces in person and at a distance, and communicate with customers through a new virtual toolbelt. Graduate is hoping to standardize immersive selling as a benchmark in customer experiences across the hospitality industry. With more than ten new hotels set to open by the end of 2020, its expansion will be poised to begin selling to leisure and event prospects immediately.
“Once we saw the power TrueTour had to increase incremental revenue at Graduate Athens," says Larkin MacDonald, Director of Sales and Revenue, Graduate Hotels, "it was a no-brainer to roll out the platform across our entire portfolio. TrueTour is the most powerful 360°/3D platform on the market which integrates all of our most important sales and marketing materials into one place, and showcases the unique character of each of our properties. Plus, their service and delivery is second-to-none. As we enrich our sales process, we demonstrate to our target audience what type of events and experiences we can execute on. Based on the results of our test drive at Graduate Athens (Athens, GA), we're projecting significant returns on our investment with current properties and new developments opening throughout 2020.”
Graduate Hotels properties aim to embody the spirit of collegiate communities across the United States, reflecting the cultures and traditions of cities they reside in. Catering to a niche clientele who is ready to shop for events and leisure travel via an immersive virtual reality and 3D/360° experience, Graduate is in line with a digitally native audience.
