With Thrio’s revolutionary cloud contact center technology, Travel Outlook is taking consumer reservations and customer service to the next level.

Travel Outlook, The Premier Hotel Call Center™, is pleased to announce a partnership with Thrio, a revolutionary contact center platform that’s making waves in the customer service industry.

As the first and only call center certified by the Kennedy Training Network (KTN), Travel Outlook uses a unique, industry-leading sales approach developed exclusively by KTN to train their reservations specialists.

With the KTN system, Travel Outlook closes up to 70% of the qualified reservation calls received, making Travel Outlook the premier Hotel Call Center. With the addition of Thrio, Travel Outlook now utilizes Thrio’s Cloud Native CCaaS Technology to deliver unapparelled digital and voice customer service.

Thrio’s cloud native contact center technology provides dynamic automated and on-demand capabilities that allow Travel Outlook call center agents to meet customers where they want to interact and seamlessly transition conversations from SMS, Chat, or email to the voice channel without forcing the customer to start over.

“With Thrio’s award-winning CCaaS Technology, Travel Outlook is well positioned to outperform BPOs utilizing legacy cloud contact center technology providers and, thus, stand out from the competition. Thrio is thrilled to have been selected and we are excited about working with Travel Outlook to realize their strategic direction and modernization of their customer care technology capabilities,” Lance Fried, Chief Marketing Officer at Thrio.

Travel Outlook is adding Thrio’s groundbreaking technology to its innovative guest-led conversational AI tool Annette, the Virtual Hotel Agent™. Annette offers best-in-class caller engagement, unrivaled flexibility for callers, and provides an engaging, on-brand experience. Annette’s technology allows customers to lead the conversation, creating natural, human-like interactions and affordably answering 60 to 70% of the calls for the front desk team.
