Today’s traveler profile is changing in both the leisure and business travel industries. Online purchases on desktop once overtook travel agent industry, but now mobile purchases on smartphones and tablets are becoming increasingly popular.
Hurdles and Opportunities with Online Bookings for the Transportation and Travel Industries
Consumers online and offline have many ways to book transportation and travel needs today. So maintaining marketplace agility and marketing across multiple channels is key to success in the travel industry. Orient Software can develop an effective tool to promote your most attractive amenities and your best deals to smart online shoppers.
Compatibility Across Platforms
Buying decisions and media consumption happens everywhere you look, online and offline. Smart companies know that effective marketing to their potential consumer means branding their messages on multiple devices from cell phones to tablets and desktops.
Optimizing Your Resources
Do you want to know the number of available rental cars in the lot or how many seats are left on the flight to Los Angeles? Either way, being able to manage inventory well is critical to your success in the transportation and travel industries. With good asset management through sophisticated capturing analytics, you will maximize your profits and be more successful.
You’re probably marketing to many demographic groups. So you know the transportation and travel needs of a small family are vastly different from those of a regular business traveler, and a single marketing approach won’t do the trick. You need to target different groups in different ways, keeping your message agile and always up-to-date with current market trends.
The Customer Comes First
The best way to be successful in the travel industry is to customize your services to meet the needs of your consumer. Technological advancements allow consumers utmost involvement in the buying process. A savvy consumer will often do a lot of research before purchasing anything. The active consumer will also share his/her experiences and buying choices —more often the bad ones than the good—to friends through word-of-mouth or online marketing. Create a lasting positive consumer experience the first time around, because you may not get a second chance. Use Orient Software services to help you choose the best tech tools available for your needs.
