HFS Top 10 Travel, Hospitality, and Logistics Service Providers 2018
Like most sectors, digital disruption greatly impacts the Travel, Hospitality and Logistics (THL) industry, and businesses are trying to navigate these waves of technology change. Consumers today expect an intuitive, personalized, omnichannel digital experience throughout each touchpoint of the travel journey from researching destinations to booking transportation and accommodations. With these evolving consumer expectations and the emergence of next-gen technology platforms, THL companies need to rely on service providers to modernize legacy technology, focus on innovation and withstand disruption.
In October 2018, HFS Research released its report, Top 10 Travel, Hospitality and Logistics Service Providers, which examines the services landscape for leading providers that support and enable the digital transformation of THL companies. The report analyzes the capabilities of 21 service providers across the THL value chain and ranks them across three primary categories and seven subcategories, including the ability to execute, innovation capability and voice of the customer.
