(PRWEB) February 23, 2012
DIAMOND RESORTS INTERNATIONAL® (Diamond), a global leader in the hospitality and vacation ownership industries, today announced the introduction of Customer 360, a global initiative that creates personalized guest experiences.
Customer 360 is a system that provides a comprehensive view of the wants, needs and background of owners, members and guests. It provides the tools necessary for Diamond team members to be proactive and anticipate the needs of guests, while at the same time creating a unique and personalized vacation for each individual. When a guest checks in or makes a reservation, Customer 360 provides relevant information that will allow team members to make guests feel special and exceed their expectations.
The Customer 360 rollout kicks off at the front desk, allowing attendants to review profiles at check-in and determine which activities or amenities the guest enjoys based on previous visits. The front desk offering has been in beta-testing in recent months and customer feedback has been overwhelmingly positive. Customer 360 will soon be available to the Diamond call centers, providing a better way to assist guests in planning their vacations.
Another facet of the system is the Unexpected Delights program which allocates money to each resort enabling team members to go above and beyond in delivering service excellence. This program allows team members to use the Customer 360 data to deliver against any captured data on the guest profile for things like anniversaries, birthdays and more. The program allows for delivering cards, balloons or some surprise amenity, occasion appropriate. Unexpected Delights isn't only about delivering gifts, but showing guests that Diamond listens and cares.
According to David F. Palmer, President and Chief Financial Officer, Diamond Resorts International®, "By using technology to our advantage, Customer 360 will make every interaction more human. It will provide more tools to our team members so we can better deliver The Meaning of Yes® and offer personalized vacation experiences for our owners, members and guests."
