The sales and marketing team at Malaysia's Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre (the Centre) has adopted Apple's iPad to share the centre's facilities.
Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre general manager Datuk Peter Brokenshire said the centre has developed its own specially designed app to help the team show up-to-date floor plans, images and services of the centre, which is adjacent to Petronas Twin Towers in Kuala Lumpur.
Brokenshire said the app also provided sales managers, when meeting with clients in and out of the office, with relevant and specific information that clients can view instantaneously and discuss. "It adds value and convenience to the client engagement and makes information readily accessible."
"It's about stepping up our game," he said. "The Centre is renowned for its advanced technological facilities and we remain cognisant of the need to keep up-to-date with new trends in order to continue delivering quality services. Providing our sales and management team with iPads and a customised application means they can keep their fingers on the pulse and share real-time information with their clients."
The Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre (the Centre) is a component of the Kuala Lumpur City Centre (KLCC) and is managed and operated by Convex Malaysia, a joint-venture company between KLCC (Holdings) and AEG Ogden, Australia. The Centre, comprising of two auditoria (seating 3,000 and 500 respectively), 9,710 sq m of exhibition halls, a grand ballroom, which seats 2,000 diners, a banquet hall for 500, a conference hall for 1,800 and 20 other meeting rooms, provides 20,059 sq m of function space in the heart of Kuala Lumpur.
