Description of Challenge:

The tourism industry is information-intensive; the access to a reliable and precise information system is essential to help travelers to select the best products as well as for the efficient operation of the tourist market. Furthermore, an effective method of communication is essential in each stage of commercialization; there is several information technologies (IT) used in the tourism industry. The Internet has facilitated the rise of low-cost /low-fare air companies which work with cheaper rates and travel agencies which operate exclusively in the Web. At the same time the industry required a redefinition of new strategies to be adopted by the sector traditional players. If in pre-Internet times the processes were controlled by the vendors of products and services (agencies, air companies, hotels, tourism operators, car rental companies, etc.) with that and other technological solutions the end consumer has been playing a major role in selecting and controlling the products, the booking and purchasing processes. The technological solutions combined with consumers’ greater control implied the adoption of innovative strategies by the market: creation of new concepts of services, new modes of distribution and delivery of tourist products, new B2B partnerships in research and development (R&D) of products and processes, investments in IT and new requirements of empowerment and qualification of human resources (HR).
