The goal of the Pricing Services Team is to drive bookings by providing accurate rate quotes from search, to quote, to booking. We process rates from various supplier types, from massive property management companies, all the way down to small mom and pop innkeepers. And as you know, when handling more than one billion service requests per hour, speed and scalability are key.

Incorporating occupancy taxes into the rate quotes and collecting them is also important as it not only makes a more seamless flow for the traveler, suppliers have one less check to write at the end of the month. Join us and help drive these goals to success in 2019.
