Power players in hotel CRM, CXP & digital consultancy join forces for AI-fueled marketing automation that dynamically customizes content and pricing based on guest intelligence
Boca Raton, FL, June 11, 2018 – Cendyn, the leading provider of hotel CRM and hotel sales platforms in the hospitality industry, announced a new partnership with Hedgehog, a digital consultancy, to integrate Cendyn’s eInsight customer relationship management (CRM) solution with the Sitecore® Experience Platform™ (CXP) to deliver powerful personalized digital experiences.
The agreement will enable Hedgehog to tap Cendyn’s guest intelligence engine to fuel live personalization and dynamic pricing based on marketing segmentation and guest profiles in eInsight across Sitecore’s digital platforms.
The CRM + CXP integration between Cendyn and Sitecore, facilitated by Hedgehog, will allow hotels to ensure their guests receive targeted messaging based on their personal preferences and behaviors stored in Cendyn’s central data warehouse across all digital channels.
