Marketplace Context

Each industry segment has its predominant goals for their mobile environment. Hotels and Vacation Rentals are focused on achieving a certain service level for their guests. Restaurants need to make key decisions about how to accept online orders from their patrons. Golf Courses and Country Clubs thrive on the convenience sought by their players and members. However, all segments and their guests share a need to emphasize contactless business processes to ensure the safety of all parties, amongst other justifying factors. These change management endeavors are being faced while many businesses within these segments are at an all time revenue low. This may require these businesses to make tough decisions about reducing expenses in the form of staff, marketing, technology and simplified business processes. Meanwhile, these businesses have to prepare for how and when to ramp up a business reflecting the required changes for how they will compete in the future.

More optimistically, this situation also creates opportunity. Hotels are able to provide a more streamlined service level to those customers who desire it. Vacation Rentals have more viable access to marketing and technology options to improve operational needs. Restaurants now have more solutions to many of the long-standing issues that caused hesitation toward industry change. The Golf segment is also able to place more control in the hands of its golfers. All of this creates the first two questions…what solutions exist and what do they do?
