FAQs

...have a look at our frequently asked questions!

You can (finally) implement flexible pricing in your event sector. One or the other may have been playing with this strategic idea for a while and wondered until now how to implement it. Others may now be asking themselves: Do I need flexible pricing for meetings? Sure, just have a look.

With the help of our tool you can dynamize your prices and make them as flexible as you want them to be: from using a few pricing mechanisms to daily rates – everything is possible among this spectrum. Going forward you won’t have to worry about the calculation, because MiceRate calculates live within every request.

We are a bit proud of the fast that we’re currently the only team that can even provide you with daily rates for events with help of our algorithm. By the way, our algorithm isn’t screw up by price-confusing events …. like a pandemic. The structure of the data in the background makes it possible.

As for the strategic side: We are also happy to advise you if you have little experience with flexible pricing or if you want to implement your ideas step by step. You are welcome to exchange ideas with us without obligation.

Did you know that MiceRate is also ideally suited for the sales of co-working spaces?

“Ditto,” thinks Anna. While Gerhard even uses his smartwatch to pay for parking tickets, she hears the coins rattling in her purse… Kidding aside.

Of course MiceRate is “pure technology”. But that doesn’t mean operating with it would be complicated. Right from the start, we made sure that you and your employees can quickly and easily find their way around – and of course your customers, too, if you decide to let them enter the process.

We are happy to launch the initial settings for you in order to cause as little effort as possible for you during the onboarding. Nevertheless, to ensure that your event sales team and MiceRate work well together, we are going to train you on how to use it in 60 minutes.

If you once have “deleted the internet”, just call or write a message to Gerhard. He will be happy to help you with questions regarding the operation with MiceRate at any time. 😊

Actually, not many! Most of our features are accessible pretty easily and quickly. 😊

In order for you to use MiceRate’s algorithm, it must be ensured that the algorithm is constantly fed with data. The easiest way to do so, is to connect one-way with your PMS. However, since we are currently not connected to all PMS providers or in case you don’t use a PMS to manage your capacities, we will be happy to find a work-around solution on how to provide data for the algorithm.

See our list of available PMS interfaces.

No interface to your PMS available? Feel free to ask your PMS provider if they would like to give you the option to connect with MiceRate.

Don’t forget that you’re able to implement flexible pricing, automated calculation and generate quotations without a sales & catering module of your PMS, using MiceRate as tool for dynamic and live calculation.

So far we have the possibility to connect with Oracle Fidelio Suite 8, Bankett-Profi and EventTemple. We’re currently building up an interface with SiHot, Opera (Cloud) and Ibelsa. In addition to that, we aim to connect with Protel. We are looking forward to working with these partners soon, so maybe your PMS will soon be included in that list.

In general, we are open minded to build up interfaces with more providers in order to maximize the value for all users.

You don’t like to wait for your PMS to be connected? Your hotel doesn’t manage event capacities with a sales & catering module? Indeed, you’re able to implement flexible pricing, automated calculation and generate quotations automatically without a sales & catering module of your PMS.

You can use MiceRate’s booking engine for internal sales and/or offer your customers to create their quotation conveniently online – so they don’t have to wait for someone to call them back or answer their e-mail… what doesn’t mean you’re out of personal contact.

But the real purpose of booking automation is as follows: You should definitely take your customers along with you on the whole topic. This can only be done with transparency and the right communication. When using the booking engine, your customers can see at a glance which particular dates are in high demand. In contrast, they get an overview on which dates they can benefit from a price advantage. Transparency increases the acceptance of dynamic prices and supports your capacity control by gaining customers for dates of low demand.

If you want to make your event prices more flexible, you can’t avoid some degree of standardization and automation…. At latest when you’re explaining the amount of brilliant ideas regarding flexible pricing to your employees, you’ll know what we mean.

Willst du deine Tagungspreise flexibilisieren, kommst du nicht um einen gewissen Grad an Standardisierung und Automatisierung umher… Das wirst du merken, wenn du deinen Mitarbeitenden im Veranstaltungsbüro deinen 4. genialen Einfall zu Preiseinflussfaktoren erklären willst – spätestens dann schaust du in fragende Gesichter.

Not only hotels can enhance their MICE sales process and revenue management, but also event locations. MiceRate is suited for co-working spaces as well.

It’s obvious! Co-working spaces, function and banquet spaces have a fixed capacity with fluctuating demand whose revenue is “lost” for ever if it’s not realized daily.

We may come from the hospitality industry but our development doesn’t end within this field. Think about it, where does revenue management makes sense?

Selling events during this pandemic is not that easy. After the lockdown, there was a flood of incoming inquiries.

  • We perfectly know what it was like: customers were getting impatient because you can’t keep up with answering e-mails and returning calls.
  • We all know this unspecific inquiries “How much is a conference at your hotel?” And then you start to find out about when, what, how many participants, which service is requested, …
  • We write a lot of offers, but sometimes you end up with very little output in relation to all effort.

How can we put an end to this unproductive, stressful process?

Make event inquiries accessible on your homepage or start the process and let your customers enter it digitally to create an offer by themselves. Guests who don’t like to wait for a response have the opportunity to find real-time updated information, make concrete inquiries or perhaps process a direct booking.

… At the latest, when the first digital natives (like us) start to plan events for large companies, you should be prepared. We prefer to make our inquiries conveniently online.
