Hostmark Hospitality Group, one of the nation’s largest third party management companies, has revamped its website, (www.hostmark.com) to most effectively integrate the communication needs of consumers, meeting planners, business partners and Hostmark associates.
“Our goal is to offer a web-based one stop shop for a variety of visitors from consumers to property owners to Hostmark associates,” said Brian Tkac, Corporate Director of Marketing.
The site has been re-designed for easy navigation so that visitors can learn more about Hostmark, as well as the properties the company manages. “As a management company with a strong international reputation as a quality operator and marketer of hotels, we know what a powerful sales tool the Internet can be,” Tkac continued. “Decision-makers want the flexibility to make reservations and book meetings on-line, and we’ve made the process easy.” A partnership with mpoint.com allows visitors to www.hostmark.com to book meetings with those Hostmark properties that utilize the enhanced mpoint feature.
The website also features a corporate and regional staff directory where partners and associates can communicate with any Hostmark staff members from one location. In addition, the “Corporate Access” section provides every Hostmark associate with the opportunity to take continuing education hospitality courses, without ever stepping foot in a classroom. The online curriculum, called CourseLine®, permits students to work at their own pace, and self-administer quizzes and final exams. Hostmark managers and trainers can then go on-line, and through the company’s website, track the students’ progress and test scores.
