Social Tables (www.socialtables.com), the award-winning technology company that brings powerful sales and operations tools to thousands of hospitality professionals, has launched Social Tables On-Site, the newest addition to its suite of products.
Social Tables On-Site gives hotels and venues the ability to embed an editable diagram of their function space onto their website so that their prospective clients can get unprecedented and instantaneous access to planning in these spaces even before issuing an RFP.
The product serves as an interactive capacity chart and includes customizable floor plans with preconfigured room sets and real-time 3D rendering capability. On-Site also connects directly to the facility’s back-of-the-house workflow to enhance its operational efficiency.
“At the present time, incentives between planners and hotels are not aligned. Hotels are focused on hitting their goals and planners are focused on increasing meeting effectiveness,” said Dan Berger, Chairman and CEO of Social Tables. “On-Site is a double edged sword: it gives hotels more powerful sales tools and planners more efficient design tools.”
Social Tables On-Site also acts as a lead generation tool for facilities that use it. A built-in lead capture feature helps sales and marketing teams qualify and prioritize prospects. “It presents our function space to future clients in a very visual way. This helps them see if we’re a good fit for their needs,” said Kondja Kamatuka.
Berger continued: “Hotels are dealing with more volume than ever before. Liberating function spaces ensures hotels generate more qualified leads and eliminates inefficiency in the planning process.”
The On-Site team has already begun work on the product’s next release, which will include a real-time recommendation engine on meeting design best practices.
Social Tables On-Site can be installed as a standalone product and is immediately available.
ON-SITE IN ACTION
Social Tables On-Site is embedded into a website to give prospective planners a glimpse
into every room at the property and present them with common setup options.
Hotel Ella (Austin, TX), a Social Tables customer, uses On-Site
to help the website’s visitors start planning events right away (example).
