Elevating Sophistication with Smart Technology


On the 40th floor of Oakwood Premier Melbourne lies Strato Melbourne, a luxurious and sophisticated venue. It features an exquisite restaurant, V.I.P. areas, lavish bars, and a stunning floating outdoor lounge, making it a symbol of unparalleled dining and event experiences. However, even the greatest stories come with their own set of challenges, and Strato's was to find the perfect venue management partner.

The Challenge: A New Venue, A Big Decision

As a new addition to the Yarra Hotels Group, Strato had a daunting but clear task - to choose a venue management software that not only matched its grandeur but also streamlined its operations.


William Kay, the dynamic Director of Sales and Marketing at Strato, was well aware of the challenge. With a rich background in managing diverse hospitality spaces, William was on a quest to find a solution that was cost-effective, easy to adapt to, and could future-proof the business.


Strato's Game-Changing Solution: iVvy Venue Management Software

Strato Melbourne found their ideal venue management software solution with iVvy. After considering several options, iVvy stood out as the perfect fit for their needs. It offered an easy-to-use interface, logical design, and quick training modules - and that was just the beginning.


 “Having a platform that we could add in future properties and manage as a central team made the most sense to me. iVvy was the best fit for Strato as it is easy to train someone new to events, it was logical, modern, and easy to navigate around,” William explained. 


“The training and support for any question or concern is always quick too. It has all the functionality that we require and integrates with other event spaces and the hotel.”
