Leading travel and hospitality brands must exceed traveler expectation through seamless digital experience and consistent service or be left behind. Brands who adapt their business models, operations, systems and culture will unlock opportunities and forge lasting customer relationships based on personalization and engaging experiences.
On March 11, 2020, the World Health Organization recognized a new strain of the coronavirus as a pandemic. As strategies to flatten the COVID-19 curve led to sharp declines in travel and dining out, key events and innovative breakthroughs throughout 2020 have had a profound impact on how these industries operate. For insights on how airlines, hotels and other entities are transforming to stay ahead of the virus, explore our timeline of notable milestones that are driving change and shaping the industry’s future.
Data has become the lifeblood of the next generation travel and hospitality industry. For many, however, data remains a challenge as it sits across systems and organizational silos. We help simplify the solution by defining the technology, tools and architecture to unlock data and deliver smart anticipation of guest needs at every touchpoint.
Hospitality brands continue to strive for operational excellence to improve efficiency and reduce cost. We help clients using service design to map end-to-end services and apply our engineering processes and technologies to help teams achieve operational agility and find new efficiencies in their operations. From workforce automation, to operational system modernization, we transform the future of service and operations to unlock customer and business outcomes.
Travel companies were early technology innovators, but today many are still stuck with decades-old technology that limits their ability to innovate and adds cost. We help build digital experiences across front, middle and back-office systems with the use of DevOps and Lean practices to deliver results in real time and get solutions to market faster.
To compete today, the hotel, cruise, resort and casino destination requires a magical experience that fuses innovation and service design excellence. We help our clients reimagine the destination experience by integrating voice, AI, facial recognition and other emerging technologies to ensure all touchpoints deliver a memorable and consistent brand experience.
Today's traveler is faced with a disconnected travel journey, toggling between companies to build an end-to-end itinerary. Today travel brands have a rich opportunity, with a loyal customer base, a captive audience, and rich data that allows them to provide personalized recommendations on new services and products throughout the journey. We enable travel brands to leverage the best practices and capabilities of commerce and retail, unlocking value through new revenue streams and partnerships.
