Video | Digital Identities in Hospitality
Posted on Apr 27
The hospitality industry has recognized the significance of digital identities in recent times. This refers to the personal data collection, storage, and analysis by hotels and other businesses in the sector. The main aim of digital identities is to offer guests a personalized experience by utilizing their data to provide customized services and products.
To create digital identities in the hospitality industry, guest data is gathered from various sources. This includes personal details like name, age, gender, and contact information, along with behavioural data like preferences, past stays, and purchasing history. By analyzing this data, hotels can develop unique guest profiles that offer valuable insights into each guest's preferences, behaviour, and requirements.
