VP of Growth

A seamless customer experience across multiple channels will only be possible if brands can create a single view of the individual customer. But data points can be gathered from highly disparate systems. Often time, these systems aren’t connected and the departments in charge of the data aren’t communicating efficiently. While the data has been saved, it’s rendered almost useless unless these systems can merge and a holistic view of the customer and their touch points with your company can be created. You’ll not only get solutions to your mobile data questions, but you’ll be able to learn from other brands who are facing similar challenges during this keynote panel. 
•What customer data are you measuring and why? 
•Is your company aligned on what the metrics are that you should be measuring? 
•Does everyone within your organization have access to the data they need? 
oHow can you provide them with this access? 
oWhat barriers are blocking you from getting to data transparency?
•Are you gleaning insights from the data you gather or is it just sitting somewhere? 
oHow are you turning data into insights? 
oHow are these insights filtered to the departments that need them?
•Data driven companies can shape a really great mobile experience that drives customers to convert

11:25 am - 11:45 am KEYNOTE: Expanding Your Offerings- A Look at Hopper’s Move for Hotel Bookings

Josh Cornelius - Mobile Product Manager Hopper
While usually known for their flight booking application, join this keynote session to hear how Hopper went through the process of adding a hotel booking feature to their platform. The Product Management aspect of this launch was key. They had to rethink the whole user experience in the app, make it consistent with how their users have been using it for flights while also taking into account hotel shopping specifications. The result was and is a unique mobile shopping experience for hotels that allows users to browse content that has been completely adapted for mobile. Learn from Josh Cornelius, who lead the charge on this project, as he talks us through building this new feature from the ground up.
