CYI introduces several new metrics to drive better business outcomes relevant in today’s competitive digital ecosystem.

“With Customer Yield Intelligence ADARA empowers travel brands to provide a high-value relationship to today’s omnichannel consumer, while creating an independent, profitable business model in the face of new competitors and data regulation,” said Layton Han, CEO at ADARA.

Recent research from Phocuswright found that six in ten travelers believe brands should tailor their experience based on personal preferences and past behaviors. At the same time, market pressures including GDPR regulation and platform dominance put pressure on travel brands as they work to drive more independent value in the market. CYI empowers travel brands to deliver the personalized experiences consumers expect without losing focus on profits and growth.

“Customer Yield Intelligence empowers travel brands to create deeper customer relationships while driving more revenue from their business,” said Scott Garner, Executive Vice President & Chief Commercial Officer at ADARA. “Powerful people-based insights create a comprehensive view of customers across brands, channels, and devices for a more effective, streamlined business strategy.”

Customer Yield Intelligence provides brands with new business measurement scores including:

o Share Premium Index - Direct comparison of a single customer’s travel spending against competitors. Recognizes more valuable customers and untapped potential. o Yield Premium Index - Compares share of destination-specific bookings at the customer level against the general market level. Direct indicator of a brand’s success in driving a greater sway in bookings against their competitors. o Share of Wallet - Deepens yield to the customer level to better understand share of customer spending against overall market yields. Indicates influence on customer spending and guides efforts to increase share of customer wallets.

With CYI, ADARA is able to help travel brands streamline and perfect customer level engagements to increase returns on marketing, maximize merchandising efficiency and improve on customer-based planning across the enterprise.
