The quest to put the customer at the heart of the business

De Vere wanted to hone in on the business value of guest profiling and real-time data and how it can be leveraged using Oracle’s latest integrated marketing and sales technology.

A more reactive, real-time marketing approach was vital to achieving their business objectives. Their aim was to increase direct bookings by re-targeting existing customers with unique loyalty programmes. They also wanted to increase lifetime value of customers through personalised up-sell and cross-selling.
