#EntrepreneurMonth: At the forefront of customer feedback and online reputation management

The industry is increasingly being characterised by millennial travellers and their preferences. With the rise of the millennial traveller came an increase in online reviews - the importance of which cannot be understated as it can make or break an establishment's popularity and, therefore, its bottom line. Online reviews have come to fill a meaningful role in the industry: while travellers use online reviews as a measure that will determine a booking - or not - establishments have come to find value in these reviews as they can confirm great service or indicate where service needs attention, increase interaction with guests and consumers and, therefore, contribute significantly to guest retention.
