Business travel and events agency Agiito has launched a new live availability solution that enables meeting bookers to view rates and venue availability in real-time, before submitting their enquiry through its Meetingspro platform.
Agiito is piloting the new functionality with Royal Mail Group, with other customers also set to pilot the technology.
“I’m delighted to be part of this technology pilot. I’ve been working very closely with the Agiito team and regularly offer my feedback as they adapt their technology,” said Eloise Ferrara-Neched, procurement manager for Royal Mail Group.
“Our EAs are excited to use this, as it will enable them to make short lead bookings quicker. I look forward to working with the team as they continue to develop their meetings technology, such as instant book, which will be a game changer for not only my company, but the industry too.”
Caroline Medcalf, director of Venue Find and Events at Agiito added: “We are very excited to see our technology evolving and it’s great to have Royal Mail Group on board. It is important that we match our customers’ booking profiles to ensure the technology will enhance their overall programmes, working in tandem with our experienced offline venue finding team.”
“Our customers are already seeing the benefits of the online tool, with 19,000 online bookings made so far this year and 50% of October’s enquiries submitted online – demonstrating that Meetingspro is becoming more popular for small meetings. This means our dedicated offline Venue Finding team can focus their expertise on completing more complex bookings and giving our customers the choice, so they get the best service possible.”
