Overseas resort staff can access the system - in its user-friendly format - at any time, which removes the difficulty of downloading large email files while abroad.

All Thomas Cook`s CSQ information is collated by Consumerdata, the European market leader in CSQ services to the travel industry.

Jason Lansell, Head of Market Research at Thomas Cook commented: “Thomas Cook has worked with Infovisual to develop a fast and effective system which delivers regular customer satisfaction scores into key departments of Thomas Cook.

“Initial feedback has been extremely positive. The solution enables our users to easily access the most up-to-date information, and has the ability to tailor reports to meet their individual requirements.”

Mark Thomas, managing director at Infovisual said: “In an industry where Customer Relationship Management (CRM), and overseas service are now crucial to success, CSQ`s are more important than ever before for tour operators.

“Our low-cost, real-time CSQ solution will deliver a customisable system that will give travel industry companies a competitive advantage.”

Adrian Lawes, managing director at Consumerdata added: “Infovisual is working with tour operators to provide a convenient method of responding to customer data, which is something the industry will benefit from. In a sector where many staff are based abroad and access to emails can sometimes be problematic this makes real sense.”
