  • StrongMail replaced the two email service providers it had been using: Epsilon for Marketing Email and Silverpop for Transactional Email.Key benefits:Tight integration with Unica technologies enables a best of breed approach to multi-channel and email campaign management and execution.Customers get the appropriate messages/offers in as close to real-time. Reduced email assembly time from three weeks to days for creation and deployment of a targeted, dynamic email to template-driven messages. Automated pre-stay and post-stay meassages “IHG has the ability to send prestay and poststay messages in real-time and have them automated in such a way that they are self-assembled—you don’t need the human element to get them out to the guests.” StrongMail enabled IHG to roll out prestay messages: Three or four days before a customer is due to check in, his hotel will send an email that not only confirms the reservation but also includes a local map, information about what’s going on nearby, links to restaurants, and value-added promotions. “Hotels can load in their own individual offers,” Barrett says. These can range from a free drink at the hotel bar to discounts on local attractions.  IHG follows the same principle with its poststay emails. In addition to including a link to an online feedback form, these follow-up messages include personalized offers based on the guest’s previous transactions.  Personalizing the transactional messages in this way allows IHG to establish “a richer dialogue,” says Barrett, “which in the end gives a greater response.”
