Software Management, Inc. (SMI), a Pittsburgh-based provider of software and Web development services to destination marketing organizations, and Cendyn, a full service sales and marketing firm to the hospitality and tourism industries, announced today that they have joined forces to provide powerful electronic proposal tools to the destination marketing industry.

This ground-breaking partnership integrates SMI’s Destination 3000™ application, a CRM software solution for destinations, with Cendyn’s eProposal™ system. Using the two systems together, destinations will be able to create personalized, electronic proposals to meeting planners. Electronic proposals can be easily personalized for an individual meeting planner with content, custom messages and even video to showcase a destination’s offerings that would specifically appeal to that prospective customer.

“SMI is proud to announce this partnership with Cendyn to offer their solutions to our over 100 destination marketing industry customers,” said Jennifer Reichenbach, president of SMI. “With a few clicks, D3000 users will be able to create dynamic proposals for meeting planners based on hotel responses and industry-partner information already in their Destination 3000 systems."

Reichenbach continued, “Cendyn is already widely respected for its work in the hospitality and tourism industry with clients such as Hyatt Hotels and Resorts, Westin, Sheraton, Ritz-Carlton and others. Because of their vast experience in the hotel industry, meeting planners are already very familiar with using Cendyn’s eProposal system. It was an easy decision to align our company and software with Cendyn.”

"We are excited to partner with SMI," stated Robin Deyo, Executive Vice President of Cendyn. “SMI’s unique leadership position as a key technology provider to the DMO vertical market makes them the ideal fit for us. Our eProposal system will enable DMO’s to drive conversions with accelerated response times, personalized proposals with relevant content and the ability to showcase their destination with a wow factor."
