Travel Outlook Introduces Annette, The Virtual Hotel Agent™, Providing Instant Guest Service While Reducing Fixed Labor Expense

USA, Santa Fe, New Mexico. January 13, 2022

Travel Outlook the Premier Hotel Call Center™ ("Travel Outlook") announces the launch of the hotel industry's first AI-powered voice bot, purpose-built to reduce fixed labor costs with a distinct human touch: Annette (formerly “Bella” by Travel Outlook) , The Virtual Hotel Agent™ .

Annette can help hotels immediately address staffing issues and reduce fixed labor expense. Personalized in a human voice the hotel chooses, Annette can answer most of the calls now being handled by the front desk. To estimate the labor cost savings Annette can achieve, Travel Outlook has created a Annette Savings Tool on its website.

Annette has been programmed using a breakthrough approach to voice bots, a system built from human conversations. Using social media, chat forums, and movie dialogue, Annette learns from billions of casual human conversations to understand human inflections and multi-turn queries. This revolutionary approach means Annette understands callers no matter what they say, when they say it, or how they speak, in any language.

Annette can route calls and send follow-up texts, but her true value lies in her ability to answer the frequently asked questions unique to each hotel. Studies have shown that this can be up to 60% of a front desk's call volume, and in initial implementations, Annette has offered sterling performance.

Annette can also replace mechanical IVR answer points for the hotel. Rather than hearing, "press one for reservations", the caller hears, in a pleasant voice, "Thank you for calling our hotel. How can I help?" Then, Annette will answer many of the questions asked without any involvement from hotel staff, always offering immediate transfer-to-human option.

Hotels will be pleasantly surprised by Annette 's affordability, and getting underway with her technology is a simple online onboarding process.

A hotel does not have to be a Travel Outlook call center client to be able to use Annette . Please contact Kimberly Berry at Travel Outlook for a detailed demonstration of Annette's abilities and for affordable introductory pricing.

Social Media: Tailor Made Content


Social media has evolved into an indispensable medium for the hospitality industry. It has forever altered how hotels communicate with their customers and it has redefined how advertising and marketing are conducted. Currently, the biggest social media platforms are Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Pinterest, Instagram, Snapchat, YouTube and TikTok. Each has their own appeal and demographic. In order to reach the users of an individual social media platform, it is necessary for hotels to tailor their content to each platform's audience. For example, LinkedIn is more business-oriented so content might be directed to conference organizers, meeting planners, travel agencies, etc. Facebook has a more mature user base so they might be looking for family vacation packages, cultural experiences, or recreational sightseeing trips.  TikTok is popular with a younger audience who might want to know about concerts, sporting events, and gaming competitions, while Pinterest and Instagram focus on exquisite visuals and aesthetics. The February Hotel Business Review will document how some hotels are successfully integrating social media strategies into their operations.
