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, the travel industry demands full utilization, and cross-selling different services and upselling 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 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.

The travel industry is filled with customer moments of truth - from making reservations, upgrading preferences, checking in or confirming status, to seeking concierge help, checking out, and making plans for future trips. And because the travel/hospitality customer is always on the move, they expect an omni-channel experience, engaging with your brand at any given moment, any given place, on whichever device is convenient for them.
