Like you, we're passionate about the travel, hotel, and hospitality industry. Collectively, our leadership team has over forty years experience across corporate, hotel and field marketing, social media, and brand storytelling.
We understand the challenges hotel brands, field marketers, and hotel management face everyday when it comes to social media, marketing, and brand storytelling. We know because we've been in your shoes, working towards truly connecting data + content.
Our team built four global social media brand command centers for Marriott International from the ground up, using the same technology that we built Hotel Heartbeat with.
The Command Centers were awarded Gold and Silver Creative Data Lions at the Cannes International Festival of Creativity in the categories of Social Data and Use of Real-time Data, respectively.
We've designed Hotel Heartbeat specifically for hotel level marketers, including the most important features, but with a price point that fits within hotel marketing budgets.
