Local Measure, customer service made simple, announced today that it has achieved Amazon Web Services (AWS) Travel and Hospitality Competency status. This designation recognizes that Local Measure has demonstrated deep experience helping customers transform their businesses from behind-the-scenes operational efficiencies to guest-facing customer experiences. The launch of the AWS Travel and Hospitality Competency comes at a crucial time for the industry as it looks to innovate to address changing demands in the face of COVID-19.

AWS’s global travel and hospitality practice helps companies of every size and segment – including airlines, airports, ground transportation, travel services and sellers, restaurants, lodging, entertainment venues and casinos, cruise lines, and technology providers – to stay agile and accelerate innovation. Now more than ever, AWS wants to help customers succeed by connecting them to partners with deep AWS experience, and a proven track record for helping travel and hospitality companies build resilience for the long run.

AWS launched the AWS Travel and Hospitality Competency to help customers find highly specialized AWS Partners and take on the heavy lifting of identifying and validating industry leaders with proven customer success and technical proficiency.

Achieving the AWS Travel and Hospitality Competency differentiates Local Measure as an AWS Partner with deep domain expertise in one or more of the following categories: Data 360, Digital Customer Engagement and Core Travel and Hospitality Applications.
