Sodexo to launch new digital booking platform
Sodexo’s Prestige Venues and Events (PV&E) business is set to launch a new digital booking platform, as companies and consumers start to plan events following lockdown. The new technology will go live in July and will be designed to service the expected new demand that businesses and other organisations will create as they seek to book and manage their small events online.
The platform will mean that many of the Sodexo PV&E venues will be available for event planners to make online bookings for small meetings and events using all devices 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Once live, it will also give event bookers access to online payments, easy updates and changes to bookings, the ability to create repeat bookings, and an online repository for all information relating to the event.
Amanda Brown, sales director for Sodexo PV&E, said: “The last few months have, of course, been tough for all in the events and hospitality industry, but we’re working hard to ensure we are ready for 2021 and beyond. We aim to combine this new digital booking solution with the personal service and expertise offered by our team for larger and more complex events.”
