Lanyon SMART Events™ Cloud, the Key to Reducing Costs, Increasing Efficiency of Global Meetings Program for Top-Tier Consumer Goods Company

DALLAS, TX–(Marketwired – Nov 11, 2014) –  Meetings, events, and travel software leader Lanyon today announced a major agreement with Unilever to increase efficiency, lower risks and reduce expenses for the international consumer goods company’s global meetings program.

Known for such iconic brands as Dove, Lipton, Knorr, Ben & Jerry’s, Hellman’s and Tresemme, Unilever is the third-largest consumer goods company in the world with 170,000 employees in 190 countries. Bringing Unilever’s people together across such a wide global footprint is both critical to the company’s operations and a complex undertaking for the enterprise. Unilever will be using Lanyon’s cloud-based meetings management software to reduce the complexity and costs inherent in such a large-scale meetings program. As a global company, Unilever appreciated that Lanyon’s software works seamlessly globally across multiple languages. Also important to Unilever is the ease of use of Lanyon’s solutions, leading to a high rate of user adoption and enhancing efficiency of its global meetings program.

Central to the solution that Lanyon is deploying for Unilever is the Lanyon SMART Events™ Cloud, and its advanced Strategic Meetings Management software with automated meeting planning, budgeting, online payment, attendee management, marketing, reporting and sourcing features. Lanyon is also providing professional services in implementation, deployment and training, along with their event ROI measurement tools.

“We are delighted that Unilever chose Lanyon to power their important global meetings program,” Lanyon Chief Technology Officer John Pulling said. “Our proven experience in Enterprise Event Management software makes us the obvious choice for large global organizations looking to reduce spend, automate manual processes and drive profitable growth from their meetings and events programs.”
