Using Guest Data Correctly Through Automated Segmentation

Verified case study Hotel Tech Report has reached out to hoteliers at Piris Jagdhof - Dolce Vita Experience to verify this case study.
How many hours of your employees' time are sacrificed to segment guest groups for communication campaigns? That's right: too many.
Why it matters: Thousands of guest data are filtered and sorted by hand in order to then send out individual campaigns to reach the guests.
  • Such a Sisyphean task inevitably leads to errors, costs money and nerves and, if things go completely wrong, a personal approach or even an appealing design is dispensed with for the sake of simplicity.

Top 3 Core Objectives: Julian Pirhofer, hotelier of the Piris Jagdhof, finally wanted to put an end to this and looked for a solution.
  • Stop wasting employees time: Employees should no longer have to work manually on filtering and segmentation.

  • More targeted marketing: Jagdhof also wanted to be able to address smaller groups of guests with its campaigns - not feasible by hand with the time required until then!
