The smartphone-equipped traveler is your future, and he's traveling with you today. Ingredient technologies within smartphones, like GPS, cameras, and sensors, and the apps they empower, will change how travelers and brands interact and engage with each other. Forrester also believes that smartphones will spur the development of new distance-based yield management models. How can travel eBusiness pros use smartphones to win with their travelers? Build strategies and tactics formed on the "three I's": individualism, immediacy, and inspiration.
