It’s not a surprise that Hilton is a finalist in the Technology & Trends category for the 2016 Loyalty360 Awards
. The company prides itself on its ongoing technological innovation and its impact on customer experience and customer loyalty.
Hilton’s award-winning HHonors loyalty program offers members the opportunity to earn Points and status, and enjoy instant benefits. Members who book direct receive an exclusive member rate, free Wi-Fi, and access to premium merchandise and exclusive events that they can redeem with Points. One of the highest rated travel apps, the Hilton HHonors mobile app is available to more than 52 million loyalty program members staying within Hilton’s 13 brands of more than 758,000 rooms at 4,660+ properties in more than 102 countries.
Hilton aims to provide a consistent, simplified experience at its properties, building brand advocates by putting loyalty program members in control.
Aaron Glick, VP of Hilton HHonors, told Loyalty360 that technology, experience, engagement, and analytics are key for a successful and personalized customer experience program. Priding itself on constantly reimagining its guests’ experience, it follows suit that technology is an important pillar for Hilton’s program.
Glick believes Hilton has a very strong nomination for this category at the Loyalty360 Awards.
“If you look at the hospitality landscape, only one company stands out in technology and it is Hilton,” he said. “Whether you look at our mobile app, we are the only one in the industry that does two things in a broad way. One is to be able to choose your room, and two is truly turning your smartphone into a ‘remote control’ to your travel experience−with pre-arrival requests, Digital Key, and even Uber Local Scene, a tool which helps our members explore top local restaurants and nightlife venues based on their frequency with Uber rides.
The 3rd Annual Loyalty360 Awards
will be held at the 9th
Annual Loyalty Expo
, presented by Loyalty360 – The Association for Customer Loyalty. Loyalty Expo is slated for May 24-26, 2016, at the DoubleTree Universal in Orlando, Florida.
