As a CRM leader, Cendyn embodies what Minor Hotels feels to be a like-minded partner. While we grow beyond our current state, following our roadmap of expansion, we need to future-proof our customer platforms to allow us the ability to immediately recognize our valued, repeat guests as well as our first-time guests in a manner that augments our existing DISCOVERY loyalty program, by delivering insights on each individual so that we can drive loyalty through service delivery, analytics, and timely communication.
