Branded Call Display for Travel and Hospitality Firms
Safe Travels Begin with Branded Calling
When it comes to booking vacations and travel, customers want to feel pampered – and safe. In addition to worrying about evolving rules and regulations around health-based travel restrictions, they also want to avoid travel scams.
Incorporating the high-touch phone channel into the digital omnichannel experience helps to address these costumer scam concerns. However, in our recent Omdia survey, travel and hospitality firms reported that many of their legitimate outbound calls were marked as spam – customers weren’t even aware it was them calling – and they experienced a loss of revenue as a result.
By providing your company name, logo, and reason for the call on the mobile display, Branded Call Display (BCD) helps travel and hospitality firms increase answer rates by up to 56%. This leads to reduced costs, improved customer engagement, and the ability to reverse revenue loss. Through the use of STIR/SHAKEN call authentication, BCD also ensures that calls have not been spoofed.
