What is Welcome?

The ‘Welcome’ App is part of a new Customer Service Platform which has been designed to support customer service teams in the delivery of service for disabled visitors, whilst at the same time providing this customer with the confidence that their needs will be met on their arrival at a given location.

The immense challenge for Service Teams is to know exactly what is required of them when a person with additional requirements arrives. With disabled people travelling and living more independently than ever before it is imperative that customer service teams are comfortable offering services specific to the requirements of their customer.

‘Welcome’ alerts the Service Team of the customer’s arrival and provides both general and specific information pertinent to the visitors needs.

The system sends notifications at three points:

  • At the moment the visitor books a trip to your location

  • As the visitor comes within a certain distance of the venue utilising a GPS signal or GeoFence.

  • As the visitor arrives at your entrance utilising beacon installations.
