PLANSOFT REJIGGERS WEB SITE PlanSoft Corp. relaunched its Web site in late June, creating four distinct tracts. While www.plansoft.com previously was aimed at the entire meeting industry, it now has unique services for meeting planners, facilities, suppliers (AV companies, DMCs, and so on), and visitors interested in corporate information.
The planner area is rich with content. A new Planning Guide offers feature stories and news articles on meeting industry issues. A searchable database includes a range of suppliers--car rental companies, airlines, AV firms, CVBs, convention centers, and, of course, hotels and resorts. Users can even search for people in the industry.
The site's online request-for-proposal service, launched at the end of last year, is going strong. The system has fielded 110,000 room nights so far this year, and its use is increasing, according to Ted Frank, PlanSoft's executive vice president. Look for a new Great Rates program soon, tied in to the database so rates can be used as a search criterion.
