iVvy Releases Meeting Space Booking Tool
iVvy Inc., a sales and catering solution provider, announced the release of meeting space booking tool for venues and hotels. Planners can now enjoy enhanced self-serve capabilities, to better plan and manage their events with no delays, RFPs, phone calls or emails. The intuitive solution is designed to improve the whole online booking experience for planners while enabling the venue to maximize its profitability through meetings and events.
With its latest innovation, venues and hotels using iVvy software can now set their own rules and show their meeting space, and food and beverage availability to specific event planners and booker types (such as corporate planners or travel agents) logged into the iVvy system. This streamlines the lower value meeting bookings that may otherwise be a burden to fulfill. This also means more control for the booker, as they can now compare rooms and decide which room to host their meeting from, depending on its availability and price.
Online booking is on the rise for the meetings space and meetings themselves are trending towards smaller, less complicated events. Venue spaces now recognize that small meetings can make for big business. However, much like larger meetings, planners expect a fast turn around and attentive service regardless of the size of the meeting. Client feedback taught iVvy that hoteliers and venue operators are seeking out digital tools to optimize their smaller events and spaces to free up staff to focus on higher-value engagements.
