For the third year, Hospitality Technology (HT) has partnered with leading Universities to produce the Customer Engagement Technology Study. Through surveying hotel and restaurant executives, HT is able to chronicle the trends associated with customer engagement technologies (CETs) — including installation rates and the nuances of their use — to help hospitality providers make smart technology choices. The results of this research are segmented into two distinct reports for the hotel and restaurant industries. The analysis includes current installation rates (2014) and compares them to 2013 rates to show year-over-year growth. Additional insights include: implementation plans for 2015; contextual details on CETs, for example, what features are available on their mobile websites and mobile apps, how they're managing social media, and how they measure the return on their investments.
