An all-in-all computer-based app named, ‘Daillos’ has been launched for hospitality and tourism businesses to bring their services closer to consumers. Developed by PIDASMO Technologies Group, the app is designed for the tourism and hospitality ecosystem with target to the African continent.
At the unveiling yesterday, June 22 in Accra, CEO of the Group, Isaac Paul Allotey said the new is an all-encompassing one which takes into consideration the needs of stakeholders of the tourism and hospitality value chain.
“We are looking at business owners, their workers and we are looking at consumers. We are looking to solve most, if not all of the industry problems through this platform. First of all, consumers should be able to have access to everything they need in relation to the hospitality sector. Talking of buying tickets to sites and attractions, paying for rooms and services, buying food, renting vehicles, charter flights and the likes.
“We are also looking at travel and tours where have taken into consideration tour guides and operators who sell packages. So it’s about six business categories that we have put under one umbrella and this is just the phase one,” he maintained.
The app offers users and consumers the ability to explore businesses facilities with all they need to know about them, access services they offer with pricing and digital receipts upon payment which can be done anywhere in-app and many more.
Hospitality and tourism businesses are also able to sign on workers, assess and evaluate their operations, keep track of financial inflows and gather data pertinent to their business.
Daillos, the CEO said is built with Africa’s tourism and hospitality business landscape in mind; hence, comes with features that make it easy for everyone to use and navigate their way around.
The ultimate aim of the app, Allotey emphasised is use to help make business within the industry more visible to consumers while promoting domestic tourism.
He iterated, “We are looking to promote domestic tourism. Most of the time, people like to think that Ghanaians don’t like to patronise tourism and it’s not like that. Per our research, we have identified that most of them don’t like to engage in the hospitality and tourism sector because the awareness of the existence of such facilities are not well marketed to them enough. We want to use this platform to market them.”
Daillos is currently downloadable on the Google Playstore with the ios version expected to be rolled out soon.
