Online meeting management software is essential to any company or corporation that handles meetings. As organizations strive to tighten spend across the enterprise, purchasing and travel departments seek to consolidate the meeting management process to gain more visibility into meeting spend. Meeting planners must reach these budget goals while still trying to improve their meetings. A world-class meetings management tool like Cvent can help them achieve that.

Cvent offers a comprehensive solution that allows companies to implement enterprise-wide Strategic Meetings Management (SMM) programs. The Cvent Strategic Meetings Management solution streamlines the corporate meetings and event process from the planning and sourcing phases through registration and travel booking. With over 100 customizable reports, Cvent aids the planner in measuring meeting spend. Planners maintain complete creative control over their events; procurement departments can view the costs incurred and implement controls to rein in meeting spend.

Cvent's SMM Software Helps You Plan, Source, Manage, Measure Your Organization's Business Meetings and Events

Plan/Budget: Strategic Meetings Management can require complex and intricate financial planning. Streamline the meeting planning process with workflow and policy management, system integration, department calendars and budgeting tools.

Source/Buy: With another Cvent online meeting management software feature, planners can research cities on the Cvent Destination Guide. Compare venues and service providers on the Cvent Supplier Network, and send them RFPs to receive bids on your event requirements. Having the world’s largest directory of event-specific venues coupled with a quick and easy-to-use RFP submission process is a huge benefit to strategic meetings management professionals.

Measure/Report: Use the meeting management software to create reports and measure all aspects of your meetings program, and share key meetings metrics across departments to evaluate meetings ROI.
