Three Key Pieces to Data Security

8/6/2014
Privacy and security are hot issues these days, fueled by high-profile data breaches affecting companies like Target, and closer to home, Wyndham Worldwide. Hotels are seeking ways to bolster privacy policies with scanning and monitoring procedures. Technology plays a part, but can only be effective when coupled with rigorous training and transparent guest communication.

The Rise of Social Hospitality

8/6/2014
Social media offers a sprawling, picture window view into consumer opinion, and hotels and restaurants have overwhelmingly joined the discussion. Managing social channels and the vast data they provide, however, is largely a manual, time intensive process. HT research has found that many hotels and restaurants struggle to measure and manage social activity; we anticipate social reputation management (SRM) technology will become increasingly important as the industry aims to build out integrations between social content and loyalty programs. In this special feature, HT talks to hotel and restaurant operators that are using SRM — including Domino's, Shangri-La Hotels and others — to get insight into the tools that are helping them manage and mine high-value social data.
