“When it comes to getting married, traditions may change, but as soon as a couple gets engaged, the first thing they want to do is lock in a date and a place,” said Madeline Daryadel, President of Wedding QuickQuote.
Daryadel should know, her company is the wedding industry’s first and only “Instant Response” RFP platform for online inquiries and gives couples anywhere in the world answers to date availability and wedding costs within seconds. The response is personal and is based on the user’s selection of preferred needs and amenities.
According to Daryadel, once a wedding is imminent, time is of the essence. “Even if it a couple wants a small, intimate wedding, there are a myriad of details to be addressed. The beauty of Wedding QuickQuote is that it eliminates the frustration of waiting for a reply and gives our venue subscribers a huge competitive edge,” she added.
One of the biggest complaints from couples planning a wedding is not getting a call back in a timely manner. “We saw a need and we knew we could fix it. The true beauty of our online platform is that the venue knows a couple’s wish list before they even walk through the door,” Daryadel stated.
The internet platform took nearly two years to design and ultimately perfect. Now, one year later, Wedding QuickQuote is being embraced by some of the country’s leading wedding facilities from coast to coast.
Treasure Island’s Vice President of Sales & Marketing, Don Voss, immediately saw the value of utilizing Wedding QuickQuote. “Las Vegas is a wedding destination city for couples from all over the world. Featuring Wedding QuickQuote has been a game changer, we have expanded our visibility in the bridal market while expediting the user’s search process.
“More couples than ever before use the internet to purchase their rings, her gown, invitations and book their honeymoon. It only seemed natural for them to search online for their wedding site location. Wedding QuickQuote’s pick-and-click format displays a property’s numerous wedding packages and amenities. Fun to use, it ignites the user’s imagination, allowing them to plan their special day online, and takes the frustration of waiting by providing an immediate response” said Daryadel.
Wedding QuickQuote is the first and only provider of instant answer software for the hospitality industry. The company is a division of MAD-Marketing, founded in the late 1990’s. Wedding QuickQuote, along with the Meeting QuickQuote and Event QuickQuote, are transforming the RFP process.
