The tourism sector, in its objective of guaranteeing and ensuring customer well-being, is increasingly in favor of implementing new tools that optimize customer service within a context marked by digital and immediacy, especially after changes in demand. experienced as a result of the pandemic.
In parallel, we live in a constant change and technological evolution, in which Artificial Intelligence (AI) plays an increasingly important role, assuming this a true revolution both at a business level and at a social and personal level.
According to the experts at Eternity, a startup expert in WebRTC telecommunications solutions, Artificial Intelligence is a key factor for the correct digitization of the tourism sector, thus strengthening customer service and user experience. This phenomenon promises to continue to rise over the next few years, reaching 50% of automatic tasks by 2024, according to data provided by the marketing consultancy WAM.
Artificial intelligence: cornerstone of the user experience

One of the main applications of these new technologies is, for example, the possibility of serving customers in a more immediate and personalized way, implementing, for example, “chatbots” or operational video calls 24 hours a day. Likewise, thanks to artificial intelligence, we ensure that these tools have the necessary resources to adapt to customer requests and even anticipate them.
Javier Arranz, CEO of Eternity, highlights that, “The user experience is a fundamental pillar for tourism, a sector whose reactivation has marked the course of the economy in recent months. That is why, in order to adapt to the new requests of an increasingly demanding and digital client, these companies must know how to ensure that their different requests and needs are covered immediately. Eternity has outlined its specific solutions for tourism companies with disruptive and effective communications, where the physical and virtual are combined, integrating AI to improve their experience and their relationship with the company”.
