About Greenview Portal
Who should use the Portal?
Greenview Portal was developed for several roles. Main users are hotel and venue property managers, green team committee members, hotel owner executives, and hotel management company executives. The Portal can be used by customers (meeting planners, corporate travel representatives) and destination managers to request certain types of information. Also, we have modules for commercial buildings for the basic functions of tracking best practices and collecting data for corporate or portfolio reporting.
What is the cost of using the Portal?
Fees vary based on the level of features used as well as whether you are using the Portal as a single property or company-wide (portfolio level). There is no fee to respond to a green survey that you’ve been invited to. It is best to speak with a Greenview team member to discuss a package that is right for you. Please contact us.
What benefits do I receive from using the Portal?
Please read through the features overview on features for the highlights. A demo or a discussion with one of our Greenview team members will be available if you need more information. Please contact us.
What makes the Greenview Portal different?
The Greenview Portal was designed to tailor to a handful of different property types rather than a ‘One System Fits All’ concept for all buildings or companies. Greenview Portal incorporates the distinct complexities of hotel operations or convention centers in its tracking and reporting features. Please request a demo by signing up here or contact us.
Is my data confidential?
Yes, all data is kept confidential. Please note that property level data can be viewed by authorized company users. For example, if your property belongs to a global brand or an owner of multiple properties, company level users who are authorized to use the Portal can view property level data. If you respond to a qualitative green survey requested by a customer or destination (for a green grid), then the results may be shared with the requesting entity.
What happens if I entered in wrong data?
You can edit your data at any time by accessing the Portal.
Will it be time consuming to enter in all the data?
Responding to green surveys is quick and easy. Getting into the habit of tracking your own data helps to better understand and monitor your property’s usage and costs. So we encourage property users to track and monitor on a routine basis. If you have a lot of historical data that you want entered into the portal, it may take some time initially to get all the information in the system. If preferred, our Business Processing Unit can enter in the data for you at a one-time fee.

Responding to survey requests
I received an email requesting to submit a survey, what is this for?
There are various reasons why you may have received a request to submit a survey. Most often, your customers may be requesting information on sustainable practices. Other reasons include your ownership group, brand company or management company gathering sustainability related information for their annual reporting purposes. Or your destination marketing organization is building a Green Grid for attracting event customers. The survey’s objectives will be provided to you in the e-mail about the survey. If you have further questions, please contact us .
How do I respond to the survey?

I already responded to a survey request and then received another one. Do I need to fill out the same survey again?
Your answers are saved automatically will show in green font for any repetitive questions. All you have to do is verify and check off the answers. We don’t pre-populate on purpose in case your last answer may be out-dated. So as you track and respond to more surveys, the process becomes easier.
Can I change my answers to the survey questions?
You can change your answers at any time until you submit the survey. Once you hit the submit button, you will not be able to change your answers. So please be sure that you’ve answered all the questions correctly before submitting the survey.
