|Lanyon to launch Engagement & Project Sourcing(TM), the first solution to specifically target the $50B global market for mid- to long term stays|
New service targets void in corporate sourcing process for hospitality spend management; includes traditional hotels, extended stay, and corporate apartment providers
Lanyon, Inc. (www.lanyon.com) today announced the availability of Lanyon Engagement & Project Sourcing(TM), the first corporate sourcing solution to address the $50B global market for mid to long term stays.
Launch customer Karoline Mayr, Senior Manager, Global Travel Procurement for Deltek, Inc., said 'As a company with many new and ongoing long term engagements to support client activity, we have struggled with inefficient processes to locate, communicate and finalize accommodation for our travelers. The existing transient sourcing process simply didn't support the needs for this type of travel. We are delighted to be a launch customer for Lanyon's new Engagement & Projects Sourcing solution. We believe that this new tool will enable us to provide a better service for our internal users, streamline negotiations and communications with suppliers and achieve greater savings through a competitive bidding process.'
'Lanyon has a long history of innovation within the hospitality industry which is a direct result of our singular focus on client needs. As a result of this focus, we were led by our clients to develop Lanyon Engagement & Project Sourcing to satisfy a specific need for firms of consultants, etc, with hotel and corporate apartment suppliers for both short and long term projects that were incapable of being satisfied with the existing transient RFP process. This need was the genesis of Lanyon Engagement & Project Sourcing(TM),' said Todd Tyler, President & Chief Executive Officer for Lanyon.
Lanyon Engagement & Project Sourcing will save travel buyers time in sourcing individual properties and deliver new savings through a competitive bidding and negotiation process. Notable features include:
- Rate and amenity side-by-side evaluation of all hotels and corporate apartment offers
- Display of a corporation's existing preferred transient hospitality providers and the rates negotiated with them, so as to support maximum leverage
- Integration of rich media content to support the decision making process
- Ensure agreed rates and terms are loaded in the GDS correctly and are actually available to be booked
- Sufficiently intuitive facilities to enable use by non-specialists, including the leaders of teams of consultants.
- Internal ratings system to capture the performance of specific properties.
Lanyon Engagement & Project Sourcing is being made generally available to corporate travel buyers on February 15th, 2010 and is being presented during a Lanyon Webinar entitled, 'Missing: 50% of your hotel spend.'
