As the internet in South Africa comes of age and is increasingly relied upon for business use, NFS Technology Group has launched Rendezvous SaaS, the online version of the company’s internationally acclaimed event management software.
NFS is already the leading provider of venue management solutions in Southern Africa, and the company’s Rendezvous suite of software is recognised as a leading solution designed with commercial and unique venues in mind. It is already used by leading South African venues, including the Insurance Institute of South Africa, the University of the Witwatersrand Johannesburg, the National Business Initiative, Department of Arts & Culture, Department of Defence, Litha Communications… and many more.
“SaaS stands for Software as a Service, which means that the solution is deployed over the internet as a service on demand in a secure, quickly deployed, hosted environment,” NFS Chief Executive Officer Luis De Souza explains. “The internet in South Africa has now reached a level that, for the first time, makes the launch of Rendezvous SaaS realistic.”
“With an online service, changes to the software are made automatically without the need for involving a company’s IT department. With no applications installed on site, all that’s needed to run it is a PC with broadband access. What’s more, with a multi-location hosting facility, based in South Africa, NFS handle all technical issues.”
Rendezvous SaaS offers advanced calendar management with instant room and food service availability; complete customer database with client purchasing history; and powerful menu and package handling to facilitate easy conference booking for staff. Other benefits include:
- All event documents such as Banquet Event Orders (BEOs), contracts and deposit requests produced automatically
- Excellent management reports to cover client revenue production, room usage statistics, revenue forecasts, and a host of event planning reports
- Payment only for the services you need, plus a low monthly charge per active user.
- Data back up
- The latest software release always installed
“With events handled more efficiently, time and money are saved,” says Luis De Souza. “Business is generated more easily, leading to more profit, while comprehensive management information leads to better business decisions. Revenue, service and profit are all increased.“
