Who We Are
Hotelappz is a cloud-based next-generation data-driven digital marketing product which helps hoteliers harness the power of customer data to run more intelligent marketing initiatives and manage resilient client relationship.
When I was working at McKinsey, I have had the pleasure of travelling to a lot of cities. At that time, the sudden rise of online travel agencies (OTAs) reshaped the Hospitality industry forever. As a result, I have noticed as well as my fellow hoteliers as to how it had become a mighty challenge to develop and maintain direct relationship with clients.
Many indie hoteliers kept highlighting the fact they were short on time and resources to forge closer and sustainable customer relationships. And that was the trigger that led to the starting of Hotelappz !
