Ai Video: Data and return on investment

First Published on 10th July, 2017

Airlines have been contemplating initiatives about personalisation and big data.

Now is the time to act on something small (and build on it), says Boxever’s Enterprise Sales Director, Liam Ryan. “If you start small, one can in effect prove one simple use case. Build on it, two use cases, three and more, and not within a span of one year or months, rather in a matter of weeks, $ or dollar return and value for your customers can be shown to the airline,” recommends Ryan.   

Ryan says the likes of airlines and OTAs find it tough to deal with various sources, both homogenous and heterogeneous, data sources. And then the hurdle is how to put it together. “Once an organization can put it together, then they have the ability to figure out what they want to do with it,” he says. He goes on to explain how airlines can be precise with what they intend to, and then build on the same to craft a “personalised, special moment just for passengers, and a result airlines ends up offering value to them”.

Data-driven organizations ensure their customer data collection fits in with constantly evolving behavior based on their context. So if an airline doesn’t end up connecting the dots and act on the context of a situation, then it would end up missing out on optimizing the experience.

Further, Boxever asserts that in order to attain personalisation at scale, it is vital for any organization to being able to merge all of their data, to personalize with the help of artificial intelligence (involving data science and decision making algorithms to handle increased complexity) and finally to engage across every channel – in essence to be available where a consumer is, not where you’d like them to be. If anything is disconnected, it won’t work.
