The Netty Awards

ITI Digital has claimed the coveted ‘Best Marketing Automation Innovation’ title at this year’s Netty Awards. Their trailblazing Digital Experience Platform (DXP) for tourism websites has revolutionized how Destination Marketing Organizations (DMOs) handle content management, setting a high bar for innovation in the travel industry. With solutions that uniquely blend real-time data with AI-driven capabilities, ITI Digital’s platform is reshaping the way tourism websites engage their audiences and keeps them hooked.

Innovation and Differentiation

Facing the challenge of aligning consumer behavior with technological advancements, DMOs have historically struggled to keep their websites both up-to-date and engaging. This is especially difficult considering the ever-changing nature of travel information—like events, business operations, and seasonality. Enter ITI Digital’s groundbreaking Digital Experience Platform, a software-as-a-service application that automates content management. By integrating real-time data from reputable sources and leveraging advanced AI technology, ITI Digital provides turnkey content that’s always accurate and highly engaging. Standout features include automated integration of Google Reviews, real-time operational hours, QR codes for events, and more. No other software provider in this niche offers these comprehensive tools, making ITI Digital a true game-changer in the tourism industry.

Measurable Impact and Success

The impact of ITI Digital’s automation solutions is clear, validated by testimonials and solid data. Take Ostego County, NY’s ‘This is Cooperstown’ website, for example. Since implementing ITI Digital’s automated Events Calendar in 2019, they’ve seen a 90% reduction in staff time spent on content management. Traffic to the Events Calendar surged, with a 20% increase in organic users and a 92% higher average session duration just in 2023. Another success story comes from Florida’s Adventure Coast, where automated business listings significantly boosted user engagement. During the latest fiscal year, the time-on-page for these listings was 347% higher than for other site pages. Additionally, themed itineraries on four U.S. destination websites achieved a 39.2% higher engagement rate than other pages, proving the effectiveness of ITI Digital’s automation tools.

Creative Elements and Execution

ITI Digital’s strategic approach to problem-solving centers on delivering real-time, accurate data. The platform’s automation capabilities eliminate tedious manual updates, offering DMOs an effortless way to manage their content. Key features include customization based on user preferences, automated event curation from over 30 platforms, and regularly refreshed business listings via Google Places API. Integrating third-party Google Reviews, automated trip planning itineraries, and AI-powered content creation further enhances the user experience. Additionally, QR code generation for events and listings allows visitor centers to disseminate valuable content to tourists quickly. These intelligent, creative elements have helped DMOs bring rich, authentic, and accurate information to travelers efficiently.

Overall Excellence and Industry Advancement

ITI Digital’s marketing automation solutions have elevated the landscape of destination marketing. Traditionally beleaguered by inefficient collaboration with local businesses and outdated information, DMOs now have a tool that completely reinvigorates their content management strategies. ITI Digital’s solutions offer a new level of operational efficiency and accuracy. The soon-to-be-unveiled AI Travel Buddy promises to bring yet another layer of innovation. This feature will provide travelers 24/7 access to a brand-specific AI chat assistant, equipped with OpenAI-powered real-time responses. By pioneering the first marketing automation software suite specifically designed for DMOs, ITI Digital bridges online engagement and physical travel, driving community growth and economic benefits. Their recent nomination for Hospitality Business Review’s “Top Tourism Marketing Services Provided of 2024” further cements their status as industry trailblazers.
