IMPROVING CUSTOMER EXPERIENCES IN TRAVEL & TRANSPORT


There are many factors affecting the travel and transport industry which are likely to require significant technological investment in the new decade. The most significant may be the change in customer expectations. With heightened awareness of the environmental impact of travel, consumers want greener solutions that enable them to find the best journeys by any transport method. This means businesses need to invest in technology that delivers multi-modal, self-service solutions.

Technology has already removed the need for human interaction when booking travel and transport, and the growth in popularity of businesses like Airbnb, Booking.com and Skyscanner has shifted the power from travel companies to the consumer. Businesses within the travel industry need to adapt at pace in order to meet the demands of the customer and provide the best choice and booking experience.

Our experience in the travel sector is vast, with Virgin Trains and Avanti West Coast amongst our client list. We understand that travel and transport companies need to harness the power of technology to deliver the best customer experiences at every stage of the customer journey.

The Benefits


Downtime free services


With so much of the customer journey reliant on digital technology, time-poor travellers can’t afford to be delayed by unplanned system downtime. Our experience in automating incident management ensures you have the right alerts and processes in place to get services back online as fast as possible. The latest developments in AI and machine learning can actively prevent outages so major technical disruption is minimised.

I’m afraid we haven’t found the solution to leaves on the line, but you can leave everything else to us!

Improved communications


By digitally transforming data management and automating alert processes, we can make it easy to deliver the most accurate and up-to-date service information to your customers, in real-time. Your customer support teams can also access a 360-degree view of the customer so they have everything they need at their fingertips to deliver highly personalised experiences.

Whether it’s managing service disruption messages or planning the best routes for a customer’s requirements, our automated IT services make your customer experiences a competitive advantage.

Better data insights


By implementing the best cloud data management platforms, connecting siloed systems and automating data analysis, we give your business better visibility of the masses of data processed throughout the customer journey. This ‘single pane of glass’ view enables you to better predict demand and identify changing behaviours so that you can respond quickly and stay ahead of the competition.

Our automated IT services make travel and transport businesses more secure, agile and fit for the future.
