CWT Meetings & Events has launched CWT easy meetings, a direct-booking platform for small meetings.
The platform provides meeting organisers with access to over 250,000 meeting rooms in hotels (both independent and chain), as well as unique venues and event spaces in more than 90 countries.
The one-stop platform enables planners to source and book venues, as well as AV equipment, and F&B packages. Payments can be made using a credit card, virtual card, or lodge card, and bookings can be easily modified or cancelled through the platform. It also provides companies with greater visibility and control over their small meetings so they can better manage costs, compliance, and employee safety and security.
Available in eight languages, CWT easy meetings is free for all meeting planners, and is globally accessible via a website that is desktop, tablet and mobile-enabled.
CWT M&E will also offer a customisable option for large companies looking to automate their meeting booking processes, while consolidating spend in one centralised hub. The look and feel of the platform can be tailored to match their own corporate branding.
Organisations can upload pre-negotiated rates and unique venues that can only be accessed by their employees. Preferred venues and partners can be highlighted within the tool and made to appear at the top of the search results. Payment modes can also be configured so that users donâ€™t have to enter this information every time they book. In terms of reporting and business intelligence, personalised dashboards and reports give full visibility of bookings made by the organisationâ€™s employees using the platform, and provide the ability to track bookings, cancellations, volumes and spend by supplier, user or meeting location.
