Travel and Hospitality

TouchCommerce can assist travelers with plans quickly and efficiently, online and in real time, to convert the browser into a buyer.
The travel industry is unique. Unlike other industries, you can't sell last night’s hotel room, car rental or airline ticket today.

With its razor-thin margins, this industry demands full utilization, and cross-selling different services and up-selling benefits are key to revenue growth. A sector of great potential is the unmanaged business traveler who wants to maximize loyalty benefits and is not solely motivated by price. This sector wants convenience above all else and responds best to the proactive engagement to book additional peripherals at the time of purchase.  Controlling lost opportunity through proactive engagement at the time of purchase helps increase conversion and improves the attachment rate while driving up the average transaction value.
