RICHARDSON, TX — Visual Matrix, a leader in advanced technology solutions for the hospitality industry, announced today that users of its cloud-based property management system (PMS) can now leverage the advantages offered by its new integration partner Directful, the only automated AI-powered marketing engine built exclusively for hotels.
“We’re excited to partner with Directful to bring our hotel community a unique way to enhance their customer data and invite guests back to their hotel to increase revenue through direct bookings.” Patty Jefferson, Chief Development Officer at Visual Matrix, said. “Together, we can empower more hotels with the advanced tools they need to be successful.”
According to Directful, the hospitality industry faces a significant challenge in guest retention, with statistics indicating that approximately 70% of guests not returning to the same property. Additionally, up to 40% of guest profiles remain unusable due to insufficient contact information. Directful offers a comprehensive solution to these problems.
“We share the excitement about our partnership with Visual Matrix because we are able to introduce many more hoteliers to the power of personalized guest engagement. By custom-tailoring messages and leveraging generative AI, we aim to help hotels boost revenue, improve customer satisfaction, and foster brand loyalty,” a spokesperson for Directful said.
Both Visual Matrix and Directful were recipients of the 2023 AHLA Technology Acceleration Award, recognizing the efforts of companies who help to advance innovation in the hospitality sector.
