ITB 2023 Highlights – Resilience, Technology & Success
One thing many of you may already know and seen first hand is the resilience shown in the travel industry following a couple of turbulent years. ITB showcased the best of the industries abilities and resilience to ride out the storm and 2023 is delivering prosperous results, many with the aid of technology, some requiring technology and some looking to improve their technology.
AI is at the forefront of technology across all industries. The potential of AI in travel to improve multiple areas across businesses, for OTA’s and other travel categories is immense. Here at moonstride we have been working on various AI projects and understand just how AI can take travel companies to the next level.
Re-building with Tech
We came across a number of independents that shrunk over the Pandemic period and are now going through a resurgence. It is the perfect time for them to invest in up to date tech to help them re-build and to help them scale up back to and over pre-pandemic levels. It is not just the small independents that are re-building and scaling up. Have a look and compare your CRM checklist here.
Many of the DMC’s we spoke to were looking for technology to help them solve their pain points such as the reduction of manual work via automation including the copying of clients bookings from reports into their system, the ability to create complex itineraries both for bespoke and group travel and providing them to their clients. Finding a solution that allows them to bulk allocate their services, creates manifests and confirms bookings with suppliers.We had some amazing conversations with DMC’s promoting our moonstride platform for just the above reasons – you can find out more about our DMC features here.
Robot automation and screen scraping technology can help across all areas of your travel businesses. Screen scraping is an incredible way to access, re-purpose and display data that can be used for all kinds of scenarios in ways that are not controversial – such as scrapping your own data for automation, access and dealing with data and tasks.
