Convergence in Mobile Devices Drives Travel Technology Adoption and Innovation
By Ann-Marie Fleming,
As consumer behavior has evolved into a mobile lifestyle, the face of consumer electronics has shifted. Adapting to a wireless world has led the industry to innovations that cater to the needs for compact and portable products, but also to the convergence of multiple technologies to address society’s on-the-go demands. Access to relevant and mobile real-time information and transportability has impacted the evolution of design and the degree of product appropriateness, benefiting today’s traveler in business and in leisure.
Norman L. Rose, President of Travel Tech Consulting and Analyst for Phocuswright, a travel research firm explains, “The new world of the always-connected mobile traveler is arriving faster than the industry can adapt. New applications such as location based services (LBS) will become a key differentiator for the frequent traveler and should be considered enhancements to existing customer service initiatives. We are moving away from the view of mobile technology as the next “cool” thing to an understanding that wireless communication is an essential part of the new travel process.”
