SalesAndCatering.com and Visrez, a hotel and venue sales tool used to bring event spaces to life, have strengthened their long-standing partnership by debuting an enhanced integration between Visrez’s Floor Plan Builder and STS Cloud.
Visrez Floor Plan Builder software produces superb photorealistic 3D event plans using exact replicas
of event spaces, furniture, and prop tools. With this enhanced integration, users will automatically generate a 3D Event Plan in Visrez whenever they create a BEO in STS Cloud, with updates automatically reflected to ensure continuity and streamline the event planning process. Planners and sales teams can easily toggle between proposals, contracts, menus, venue maps, and any other element of an upcoming event via a singular Event Dashboard.
“Visrez is a highly respected leader in 3D visualization and has become a valued partner to the
SalesAndCatering.com team since we first joined forces in 2019,” shares Ryan Hamilton, CEO and Co-Founder of SalesAndCatering.com. “Early on, we recognized the value our clients would derive from integrating our products, as 3D room diagramming was not formerly available within the STS
Cloud platform. Now, by licensing SCDC to become an authorized reseller, we can give our customers a more seamless buying experience when purchasing Visrez's Floor Plan Builder as a part of their STS Cloud enhancements.”
The evolution of the partnership between SalesAndCatering.com and Visrez will have a meaningful
impact on the industry standards informing the event and meeting planning process. Using Visrez’s innovative 3D visualization technology, hotel and venue brands can create stunning 3D event and meeting plans using exact replicas of their event spaces and furniture. When combined with STS Cloud, our next-generation, cloud-based Sales and Catering platform, hospitality brands unlock an unparalleled event sales tool in its functionality and ease of use for sales teams and planners alike.
Ryan adds, “People buy what they can see and understand; they don’t buy what they don’t understand. Putting together attractive, thoughtfully laid out proposals with unique and immersive 3D elements ensures planners can truly visualize what their event will look like at your hotel or venue space and better connect with your property and sales team. This integration is a game-changer for hotels and venue spaces eager to win more group business.”
A powerful, multi-property management solution known for its advanced functionality and intuitive
user interface, STS Cloud takes care of all CRM functions, catering needs, document workflows, booking management, lead management, reporting, and so much more. The addition of Visrez to the STS Cloud suite builds upon our platform’s existing suite of powerful features that help hospitality sales teams create more engaging and immersive presentations that convert leads into happy, loyal customers.
“The integration between Visrez and STS Cloud has been a game-changer for our properties,” shares
Dirk Beck, Director of Group Sales & Catering at The Loren Hotels. “Offering guests a truly luxurious, memorable, and immersive experience is a core part of our offering and brand promise. With that in mind, having a sales tool that can seamlessly create immersive, photorealistic event plans has helped us ‘wow’ prospective clients and win more business.”
This integration comes at a perfect time, as hospitality brands seek new ways to engage with
planners effectively in the post-pandemic world. With more businesses skipping site visits in favor of a more cost-conscious and streamlined event planning process, hotels and venues require tools and strategies that help them wow prospective clients from afar.
“Visrez solves the problem of capturing visual assets on-site without needing on-site visits, room
set-ups, or professional photoshoots,” explains Nicky Morrogh, founder of Visrez. “Each account comes with the Visrez library, which contains over seven thousand unique 3D event furniture models. Additional items can be requested through Visrez support, and all new objects are made available to all Visrez users. Our goal is to make the Visrez the industry’s largest 3D event resource of its kind.”
Visrez serves over twelve hundred properties worldwide, with over 10,000 spaces built and a library
of over 7,000 unique event furniture objects which are available to all users. Current STS Cloud and Visrez customers can immediately take advantage of this enhanced integration.
