Retail & Hospitality

Empowering shops, restaurants, event venues and more to deliver unbeatable customer service.

Transforming customer experience

The retail and hospitality industry is changing as consumer habits shift to embrace and expect effortless transactions and smooth customer service. Technology is key to delivering on this heightened demand and creating memorable experiences for visitors and customers.

We’ve partnered with retail and hospitality brands to implement the latest Microsoft Cloud technologies to transform both back-end and customer-facing operations.  Microsoft 365 and Teams allow frontline workers and back-end departments to communicate instantly and make important files easy to access securely from anywhere.

Azure provides a stable, scalable platform to host apps, data storage and virtual machines to cut maintenance overheads and keep customer service and operations online.

Create customer service chatbots in Power Virtual Agents to respond to and direct customer queries around the clock. Direct customers to the resources they need or escalate their queries to the relevant departments to create smooth customer journeys.

Automate repetitive, manual processes in Power Automate to allow frontline and operations staff to focus on developing and delivering memorable customer experiences in stores, restaurants and venues.

“During the Covid-19 pandemic, like most businesses Hobbycraft have needed to adapt and change their way of working. For us, this included rolling out Teams to all key colleagues, many of which had no awareness of what Teams could do for them. As a small IT Team, we did not have the knowledge, materials or time to educate our colleagues effectively, and the Transparity Adoption Portal has allowed us to deliver targeted training to everyone regardless of location or job function.”
