One of the key strategies that has emerged within the tourism and leisure sector is the seamless integration of third-party services into existing platforms, creating a harmonious ecosystem that caters to the diverse needs of customers. This integration not only simplifies processes but also adds significant value to the overall customer journey. In this article, we’ll explore how businesses are leveraging technology to create amazing customer experiences through the integration of services such as mapping, booking systems for dining, and real-time local weather updates.


Mapping the path to seamless experiences

Maps have become an integral part of our daily lives, guiding us from point A to point B with ease. We’ve been helping our customers integrate mapping to enhance customer experiences. By integrating mapping technology into the platform, you can provide customers with real-time location data, making it easier for them to find physical stores or service locations.


Streamlining reservations and ordering

The integration of booking systems has revolutionised sectors such as travel, dining and hospitality.

Within the restaurant sector, diners can access menus, check availability and make reservations with just a few taps of their smartphones. Similarly, within the tourism sector, customers have rapidly become accustomed to self-service tools that enable them to explore, plan and book their ideal holiday. Savvy holiday operators have embraced this opportunity to directly service their customers needs through a virtual travel agent experience. By capturing customer preferences and showcasing relevant content, they are able to support a more personalised online experience, with holiday packages and booking incentives tailored to customer needs.


Weathering the storm with real-time updates

Weather can have a significant impact on various aspects of our lives, from travel plans to outdoor activities. integrating real-time local weather updates into your platform can help provide customers with timely information that can influence their decisions and help them plan their activities. For example, your app might notify users about adverse weather conditions, and providing a suggestion for an indoor activities and entertainments – all served-up in real time and  bookable on the same platform just when your customer needs them

The integration of mapping, dining reservations, and weather updates into a unified platform offers numerous benefits for both businesses and customers. By utilising API integration your digital estate becomes a jump-off point for all your customer activities, providing a branded and curated experience for your customers to plan their leisure activities. This hub can combine contextual data about your customer preferences  to encourage additional spend and promote your latest events and activities. The foremost advantage is the convenience it brings to users, allowing them to access a multitude of services seamlessly, creating a memorable experience of their stay and of your brand.
