Research indicates that 65% of consumers express a preference for brands that prioritize personalized experiences. In response to these consumer preferences, IHG is embarking on a journey to standardize its CRM infrastructure using the Einstein 1 Platform. This platform seamlessly integrates CRM and data to create comprehensive customer profiles and tailor guest experiences, thereby driving loyalty. Leveraging generative AI, Salesforce and its technology partners are also assisting IHG in guest management endeavors.

Heather Balsley, Global Chief Commercial & Marketing Officer at IHG Hotels & Resorts, emphasized, “As we strive to enhance the IHG One Rewards loyalty program, our foremost goal is to provide guests with booking and stay experiences that are customized to their unique travel requirements. Our partnership with Salesforce will empower us to further refine the technology, tools, teams, and solutions underpinning our loyalty program, enabling us to offer personalized content and services that forge deeper connections with our most valued guests.”
