The Ritz-Carlton launches app for meeting planners

The Ritz-Carlton launch of ((Chime)), a new mobile app designed specifically for meeting planners. ((Chime)) allows meetings planners to communicate with their conference concierge using an online menu of options on their mobile device. Meeting planners may make service requests, food and beverage changes, audio visual requests, in-room temperature changes, room set-up and scheduling alterations and many other options from a simple touch activated app available on wireless-connected or web-enabled mobile devices.

There is also a text feature which allows meeting planners to give specific and unique instructions during a meeting. Once a request is made, the planner will receive a response from the conference concierge confirming receipt of the request and that service is in process.

"((Chime)) extends that leadership into digital and mobile, allowing meeting planners around the world to schedule services and request fulfillment prior to and during their events," said David Murphy, vice president, food and beverage design and development.
