This partnership will create a leading-edge solution provider for the hospitality industry within the digital marketing and mobile guest engagement space.

Benbria’s award-winning Loop mobile guest engagement platform Loop seamlessly integrates with Digital Alchemy’s customer relationship tools to provide the guest connectivity unlike anything the industry has seen before.

The ability to properly engage guests before, during, and post-stay is a challenge for many hoteliers. With the introduction of Loop and its integration with Digital Alchemy’s systems and processes, clients can now engage with guests using the mobile device of their choice. It is an integrated solution designed to make digital guest relationships more effective and profitable.

“Digital Alchemy has helped clients drive greater guest ROI using digital marketing and superior CRM for over 15 years,” commented Shannon Bedard, Senior Vice-President and Founding Partner at Digital Alchemy. “With Loop, we are harnessing the industry’s leading mobile guest engagement platform to bring greater value and service to our existing and future clients for years to come. We are thrilled with this partnership. The fit between our cultures, audiences, and vision for technology could not be a better one.”

The partnership allows hoteliers to utilize the full suite of digital marketing and CRM tools available from Digital Alchemy along with Loop’s award-winning mobile guest engagement platform. Through full integration, hoteliers can send welcome messages to a guest’s personal mobile device and engage with their guests using Loop during their stay. The real-time communication opportunity offered by Loop means hoteliers can manage guests’ requests more efficiently, resolve concerns, and recover at-risk guests while they are on site. This leads to more satisfied guests, positive reviews on social media, and more loyal long-term guests booking directly.
