iVvy is a cloud-based booking engine specifically designed for the Meetings and Events industry which will allow Central Hall Westminster and all of Central Hall Venues to maximise efficiency and improve the overall experience for clients from initial enquiry to post-event.

With the new software, meeting and event planners will be able to search, compare, book and pay for function space in real time making the experience quick and easy. Through the technology, Central Hall Westminster will be able to share live data on which event spaces are available to maximise bookings. iVvy’s software streamlines the entire event management process to improve the customer journey from the sending of an enquiry to making final payments and invoicing, all tailored and specific requirements, through to post-event reporting. The system will also improve efficiency for all staff so work can be planned seamlessly.

iVvy’s booking tool will integrate with Central Hall Westminster’s website so that enquiries are instantly uploaded into the system and dealt with as quickly and smoothly as possible. Other features include CRM, function diary, quick quotes and contracts, invoicing which accepts instant payments and run sheets.  The technology enables work to be automated, helping staff to generate easy to use and read reports and data including finance, sales, catering and operational aspects.  In addition, the venue will use the email marketing platform to send regular campaigns and newsletter to their databases to keep them in the loop with new offerings and latest events hosted.

In parallel with the integration of the iVvy system, Central Hall Westminster as part of Central Hall Venues has also revised its terms and conditions for greater transparency which includes protection of 3rd party suppliers and a COVID clause.

All staff have been fully trained to use the system by iVvy to help them leverage the software to maximum efficiency, which in turn will benefit clients. Contractors including Central Hall Westminster’s in-house AV and Production Partner, White Light, and on-site caterers, Green & Fortune, will also be trained to use the system.

Paul Southern, Managing Director of Central Hall Westminster and CHV, comments: “The new iVvy platform is a game changer for Central Hall Venues at a time when we are expanding to take on new venues and as events come back into action again post-COVID. Our aim is to make holding an event at one of our venues as easy and stress-free as possible, from initial enquiry to post-event reporting.
