Outrigger Hotels and Resorts Selects Annette, The Virtual Hotel Agent™
Travel Outlook the Premier Hotel Call Center™ ("Travel Outlook") announced today that Outrigger Hotels and Resorts has signed a contract for the design and implementation of Travel Outlook's Annette (formerly “Bella” by Travel Outlook) , The Virtual Hotel Agent™. Annette is the hospitality industry's first AI-powered voice assistant, purpose-built to reduce fixed-labor costs with a distinct human touch.
"Our Annette implementation team will craft a thoughtful execution plan for Outrigger," said John Smallwood, President of Travel Outlook. "Outrigger has been a valued call-center client of ours for several years and we intend to work carefully with the Outrigger team to design the right approach for integrating Annette in way that enhances guest services and reduces operating expenses for the premier beach resort brand."
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.
A hotel does not need to be a Travel Outlook call-center client to use Annette. Please contact Kimberly Samuelson at Travel Outlook for a detailed demonstration of Annette's abilities and attractive pricing. Travel Outlook has created the Annette Savings Tool to demonstrate the savings possible in front-desk labor when weaving in Annette's abilities with those of the front desk team.
