Since the service debuted last May, TripAdvisor has launched a number of enhancements to the service with the aim of delivering a better user experience for business owners using Review Express. In July 2013, TripAdvisor introduced the Review Express Dashboard, providing users of the service with a useful summary of the effectiveness of their email campaigns, automatically updated to report on their most recent activity.

In an effort to further improve Review Express for users, TripAdvisor today announced the latest enhancements to the service, including:

  • More streamlined ability to save and reuse email campaign templates, allowing users to more quickly send email campaigns using saved templates
  • Ability to update photo and "from" email address on multiple templates at once using default settings
  • Ability to automate the sending of Review Express campaigns for reservations made through internet booking engines connected to TripAdvisor1
  • Additional how-to guides, tip sheets and best practice information about how to get the most out of using Review Express

"There's no question that reviews play a pivotal role in the booking decision for travelers – according to recent PhoCusWright research, more than half of TripAdvisor users will not book a hotel that does not have reviews," said Severine Philardeau, VP Global Partnerships, TripAdvisor for Business. "Review Express was created to help hospitality businesses encourage and generate more reviews for their property page on TripAdvisor and the service is delivering great benefits to business owners. Review Express is helping them to generate a third more reviews by using the service and, on average, over a quarter of their total reviews on the site come as a result of a Review Express email."

"Review Express is an incredibly efficient and effective way to collect guest feedback," said Andrew Couroyer, director of sales and marketing, Golden Eagle Resort. "Since we began using the product, we've seen a significant increase in guests posting reviews based on their experience. That helps us get the word out about our property to other travelers."  

Hospitality business owners must be registered on TripAdvisor to use the free service. They can access Review Express via their Management Center or via www.tripadvisor.com/ReviewExpress.

Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lead...
Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations.

The session is centered around the tracing of systems on cloud using technologies like ebpf. The goal is to talk about what this technology is all about and what purpose it serves. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Shashank Jain, Development Architect at SAP, will touch upon concepts of observability in the cloud and also some of the challenges we have. Generally most cloud-based monitoring tools capture details at a very granular level. To troubleshoot problems this might not be good enough.
