Accor is the first hotel group to deploy this new solution in more than 3,500 properties worldwide starting April 15, 2021. The goal is to prepare hotels for the tourism industry's recovery.
The recovery of the tourism industry will begin with a faster recovery in leisure and domestic travel customers. Cvent's newest leisure bidding product will facilitate end-to-end tracking of leisure contract creation, from hotel inquiries to rate billing in CRS and PMS. All contract details will be available in the CRM tool. This integration will provide hotels and sales teams with a 360-degree view of business activity to provide a high level of service to B2B customers.
The launch of this new digital solution will provide a competitive advantage by allowing hotel managers to look forward to the recovery with peace of mind through a streamlined end-to-end B2B application process. The solution will be available starting in April at nearly 3,500 of the group's more than 5,100 leisure-focused hotels.
Co-developed with teams from Cvent, the leading provider of corporate hospitality and demand management technology, the new solution benefits from the combined expertise of two global hospitality leaders, providing the functionality hotel managers and sales teams need to accelerate the industry's recovery and growth in this segment.
We are delighted to announce the launch of the Cvent’s leisure RFP product at our hotels. It is the result of expertise and cross-company collaboration which brings together the best of Accor and Cvent. Developed during this unprecedented situation, this new solution will now be rolled out within our target properties. We are very pleased with our achievements to date and are keen to see how the solution will evolve.
