Boca Raton, FL– July 27, 2015ACQ5 magazine, a leading M&A magazine news site, recently awarded Cendyn® CEO and Founder Charles Deyo with its prestigious ACQ Global Awards 2015 U.S. Gamechanger of the Year award for hospitality marketing solutions. The ACQ Global Awards honor the leading deal teams, firms and professionals whose activities set the standards for major markets worldwide. Nominations are provided based on reader insight and experience.

In 2015, companies and individuals representing every major market in the world became finalists for the award. Winners represent the benchmark of achievement and best practice in a variety of fields.

“Being awarded with ‘Gamechanger of the year for online hospitality marketing solutions’ in the ACQ Global Awards 2015 is a supreme honor,” said Deyo. “Whether it’s delivering enhanced loyalty, higher average rates, increased return on advertising spend, faster group conversions or collaborative event solutions, our seasoned team is committed to being the thought leader in the hospitality industry.”

Founded 19 years ago by Charles and Robin Deyo, Cendyn rapidly became an early leader in digital marketing and technology solutions for the travel and hospitality industry.

Over the past decade, the company has developed innovative, cloud-based Software as a Service (SaaS) applications for both the meetings/events business, as well as the leisure hospitality space. As the company continued to experience rapid growth around these distinct lines of business, the decision was made in 2014 to reorganize Cendyn into two signature companies. These are Cendyn/ONE™, which provides an integrated CRM and Data-Driven Digital Marketing Platform for hospitality, gaming, and leisure; and Cendyn Arcaneo®, an end-to-end event and entertainment technology platform that is redefining the way clients plan, execute, and measure global event programs – including corporate entertainment and sponsorship ticket spend.

Its recent acquisition of Ovations Management Solutions™ gives Cendyn Arcaneo’s enterprise customers the ability to manage corporate tickets and entertainment assets through a stand-alone solution, Ovations™, or integrated with its Metron® Strategic Meetings Management (SMM) software.

Cendyn/ONE’s additional recent accolades include: Trend Setter and Best Overall Value awards by Info-Tech Research Group, Inc.’s 2015 CRM Vendor Landscape Award and a total of six Adrian Awards in HSMAI’s Annual Competition. Additionally, Cendyn/ONE was voted one of the “Top 20 Most Promising Hospitality Companies in 2015” by CIO Review and held the cover story for its annual Travel and Hospitality issue.
