RELEASE: Onyx CenterSource Announces Integration of GroupPay Product and Partnership with Cvent

DALLAS, Nov. 1, 2023/PRNewswire/ -- Onyx CenterSource, the world's leading provider of B2B payments and business intelligence for the hospitality industry, today announced a new integration between its GroupPay payments platform and Cvent, a leading technology provider for meetings, events and hospitality. Additionally, Onyx announced a partnership with Cvent, which will create added value for mutual customers by offering automation, visibility and standardization of meeting and event commission management through GroupPay.

"This integration with GroupPay will provide Cvent customers with a single, seamless path from requesting a proposal to receiving commission payments for their meetings and events," said Mike Tenholder, senior director of alliances at Cvent. .

The integration, scheduled to launch later this year, will allow Cvent users to automate and better manage their M commission payments.

Thanks to this integration, customers will be able to take advantage of Cvent's robust marketing and event management platform while also using GroupPay. The integration will also improve data and information sharing between the two platforms, providing them with greater visibility into payment status at all stages.

Additional benefits of the integration include centralized, standardized submission of tax-compliant invoices, which will expedite payments, and seamless data flows from Cvent to GroupPay, which will automate the process by entering event RFP data, eliminating in turn the need for M planners

Tony Wagner, chief commercial officer at Onyx, explained: "Over 200,000 travel, meeting and event agencies and more than 150,000 hotel properties rely on Onyx's powerful B2B payment automation platforms globally. Through this new partnership and integration with Cvent, mutual clients can benefit from the unique functionality of our respective technology platforms, while helping companies increase return on investments and optimize their meeting and event commission payment processes through a single path, from RFP to commission payment, with tax-compliant billing, automation, and centralized analytics to drive business decisions."
