In the Spring of 2018, TourTraxUK will be running an event in central London offering insight and real-life examples of how technology delivers competitive advantage to hospitality businesses. Reflecting TourTrax’s own commitment to making manual processes electronic, we have invited 2 of the UK’s leading entrepreneurs to talk to TourTraxUK subscribers about the way they have used technology to disrupt and innovate. They will also expand upon how and where they have applied these technologies to benefit the hospitality sector.
At the heart of the TourTraxUK proposition lies our commitment to making any manual or paper-based process electronic. Whether you are familiar with our technology as something that makes monitoring your staff easier, speeds up the process of sending and managing tasks and activities, or just proves that people are in a certain place at a certain time, the reality is that the number of ways and scenarios that our technology can be applied is virtually endless.
Because of the flexibility that cloud-based hosting and the Microsoft SQL Azure programming platform gives us at the back-end, along with the uniqueness of RFID and the processing power of smartphones at the coal-face, we can produce a completely bespoke solution enabling virtually any paper-based or manual process to be automated most environments. For example, our solutions have been used to enable exactly the correct amount of organic waste to be dropped at recycling points across the UK, with the full visibility (through API integration) of the environment agency. More simply, we have also been asked to implement a tracking solution allowing parcels to be tracked from one University building in South-East London to another, making sure that all packages are delivered on-time and in one piece.
At our event in the Spring of 2018, in addition to meeting senior TourTrax management in person, you will be able to meet 2 of the UK’s youngest and most exciting entrepreneurs in London’s Aldgate, E1.
Jamie Bolding started Jungle Creations in July 2014 and 3 years later, at the grand old age of 26, he now owns some of the most viewed and shared social media channels on the planet. With in excess of 47 million followers at his disposal, rivalling the likes of Walt Disney and Warner Bros, Jamie will be able to give you unparalleled insights into how compelling content can be generated at little or no cost that can be used to engage a global, but highly targeted audience around the world.
Carl Churchill started NetPay in October 2012, having started and sold his own internet services business before the age of 25. Carl then decided to apply the same principles of technology and innovation to the payments sector, and five years on, 30% of ALL businesses in the UK applying to use merchant services for the first time, or switching from one to another, are being processed by NetPay. Carl will be imparting the benefits of his experience around enabling hoteliers and restaurateurs to take more up-front payments and bookings in advance of any services being delivered.
