Building The Dream Team

Building great products requires great vision, great insights, and great strategy. But, perhaps most importantly, it requires a great team. One that has the skill, ambition, and drive to take a unique vision from concept to successful execution.

Things move fast in hospitality tech. While we focused on getting through the pandemic, we never lost sight of the road ahead. Over the last year, we’ve quietly been assembling a team.  An “A” team with a goal of not just keeping up, but rather, setting the pace.

Big Changes are Coming to NAVIS.
The cooks in the kitchen are busy. REALLY busy. Essentially, every aspect of our platform is being re-engineered to maximize direct booking revenue.  And not just the colors, buttons, and UI, we’re going down to the studs. Building from the ground up.

This new platform allows us to innovate faster, increase product performance, and expand our lead capture and conversion capabilities into new channels. It also drastically expands our (your) capabilities. It encourages new, fresh, and creative ways of thinking. It enables a new, faster, and more efficient approach to product development. And it requires an “A” team of skilled engineers and inspired, passionate, product innovators that can bring it all to life.

A New Platform.  A New Team.
After growing high-performing product teams and maximizing revenue for some of the world’s top brands, including TravelClick, Starwood Hotels, Intercontinental Hotel Group (IHG), and Deloitte, NAVIS VP of Product Solutions, Bryan Turner has been busy assembling a team to execute one simple vision: to build a platform that maximizes direct booking revenue for our clients. The all-new NAVIS “Direct Booking Platform.”

The new team includes a hospitality veteran with a background as a Software Engineer. A seasoned digital marketer with a knack for big data analytics, artificial intelligence, and machine learning. And a Certified Scrum Product Owner with a passion for direct-to-client application development. All who have teamed up to usher in the definitive hospitality marketing platform (it’s pretty awesome, but I can’t spill the beans on that just yet).

More Connections. More Data. More Opportunity.
With the advanced platform comes advanced (and more) data. So, we’ve recently added a Business Intelligence Analyst division to comb through and extract actionable insights from your data with the core objective of increasing guest conversion rates and shedding light on revenue opportunities.

But What About Your Needs Today?
You’ve got questions. We’ve got answers… And love. Yes, “Customer Love.” While we’re building new teams focused on tomorrow, we thought it prudent to also build a dedicated team focused on today.  So, we’re affectionately building a new Customer Love team committed to delivering your top enhancement requests. That team will be assembled and at your service as soon as this summer.

Big changes and big things to come. So stay tuned, we have a lot of exciting product updates heading your way.
