The hospitality, leisure and tourism sector constantly strives to provide customers with a positive experience. People are becoming more and more discerning when it comes to how they spend their money and their time. They continuously seek out new, more enjoyable, more comfortable, more relaxing and more affordable alternatives. This calls for creativity, innovation, teamwork and additional levels of service. Innovation has therefore become part of your day-to-day business operations. However, this takes time and money, but at the same time prices, and hence your returns, are under pressure.
