Current Trends

Hospitality and retail industries are constantly adapting to changing consumer cultures. These industries are currently looking more towards innovative technology within their sectors that can provide a ‘high tech, high touch’ customer experience. Consumers are looking for an increase in self-serve and high-speed options, and so industries are implementing more innovative technology to create seamless connectivity across platforms and devices for the customer.

With the majority of consumers owning smartphones, the importance of electronic and mobile-enabled management is increasing. Mobile e-commerce is growing, and mobile apps are being used as everything from a digital concierge to accessing big data. Social networks continue to be used as shopping platforms, and social media engagement is driving consumer purchasing power. As a result, these platforms are able to market to a greater audience and assist in providing a greater customer experience.

Industries are incorporating more digital technologies to personalize, enhance and enrich experiences for the consumer. The focus is on tech that creates personal customer connections, reduces pain points along the shopper’s journey, and optimizes operational efficiencies. By automating basic guest requests or needs, staff are available for other activities that enhance the guest experience.
