We spoke with Oliver Morgan, Group Sales Manager Faena Hotel Miami Beach, about how using Allseated made working with clients during the COVID-19 Pandemic easier.
“During the pandemic, we were not able to conduct in-person, on-site inspections. Getting the potential client to touch, feel, and experience the hotel is 99% of the sale so the inability to meet in person posed a problem.
Getting the first post COVID contract across the finishing line meant I needed to show exactly how we were going to execute the program without experiencing the hotel in person. Allseated is the Swiss Army knife every sales manager needs in order to quickly and easily share the vision.
The first time that I used Allseated within our sales process resulted in our first signed contract during the Pandemic.”
