Zentila.com, the online booking engine for meetings and conventions, today announced the launch of its newest version: Zentila 2.0. Zentila was designed to take the current e-RFP process and make it into a complete a-to-z RFP process, enabling planners and hotels to complete the booking right from within Zentila. More than just a booking tool, Zentila’s 2.0 version expands communication between meeting planners and hotels, enabling them to build relationships and successful negotiations both on- and off-line.
“I created Zentila because I saw how difficult it’s become for both planners and hotels to book meetings,” said Mike Mason, ‘ZEO’ of Zentila. “Since we launched in January, we’ve seen an evolution in how our planner members and hotel sales teams are using the platform. Zentila 2.0 is a direct response to the continuous feedback we’ve received. We are building a technology that will serve as both a real time-saver and also a real relationship driver. In our industry, that’s the ‘Holy Grail.’”
Zentila 2.0 continues to provide a full suite of best-in-class administrative services to meeting planners, everything from creating RFPs with the RFP Genie to searching hotels with an ad-free research engine. The easy-to-read proposal comparison grid has received an improved interface. Also, with the addition of the Negotiation Tracker, which embeds the results of negotiations directly into the meeting summary, meeting planners can report on the savings resulting from this streamlined process.
Additional new features include:
• Easy-to-navigate interactive mapping for hotel search
• Flexible booking window – as soon as next week and as far out as 2020
• Choose your favorite hotel and finalize your offer or negotiate with your top two hotels.
