Giving the travel industry new wings

The travel industry’s prolonged time-out in survival mode has resulted in plummeting revenues and talent leaving for other fields – but the disruption is already showing signs of decreasing. Companies that travel in the right direction today will lead the industry tomorrow.

The state of the travel industry today

As uncertainty clears and travel restrictions are lifted, people will resume traveling to destinations old and new, using the safest, easiest – and increasingly, the most sustainable – service providers.

At the same time, the global travel market will be rearranged as the industry bounces back from the recession. For travel companies, it’s a fight or flight situation – and the only alternative is the former.

How Futurice can help the travel industry

Our mission is to help you deliver the innovative travel experiences that separate your company from the rest, with agility and new ways of doing things. It’s about offering smooth, safe, and personal customer journeys starting right from the passenger’s doorstep, and an interconnected mix of physical and digital.

We simplify the complex, think outside the box and co-create new innovations in practice – from service design to adopting cutting-edge technologies. These, combined with the smart use of data, will enable you to thoroughly understand your end customer’s behavior and harness it as a driver for sales.

Working with people from Futurice is inspiring and rewarding. They are not afraid to challenge the client if it’s deemed necessary for producing the best possible results. I especially appreciate their willingness to look for and present different solution options that often take in all perspectives into the question. When we create new services for our customers, the processes are visualized in a way that makes them understandable and clear to all stakeholders. I have great respect for the proactive and solution-centered attitude of the Futuriceans we work with. To me, it doesn’t even feel like a client-vendor relationship, but more like a real team. Working together is fun, informal, relaxed, and flexible. Awesome people and real pros!
