UK: Cornwall-based Chatter Ltd has launched its SKDADL voice product, which it claims is “the first ever voice product to give holiday makers the ability to search for and then book a much-needed UK holiday using an Alexa device”.
SKDADL [pronounced Ske-dad-le] is enabled through Alexa and activates a personalised experience through which visitors can start your journey to a relaxing short break by choosing from more than six thousand holiday cottages across the United Kingdom.
The SKDADL launch comes at a time when domestic tourist destinations are hoping to reopen their doors again, and make up for the business lost during lockdown. Combining detailed knowledge of the tourism industry and voice technology, and powered by some of the leading holiday cottage brands, SKDADL aims to simplify the process for travellers to find their perfect domestic escape.
Holidaymakers will enjoy a personalised voice experience with results tailored to their date, location, and holiday preferences, whilst drawing on real time cottage booking availability, in the area of their choosing.
Chatter co-founder Greg Welch said: “The travel and hospitality sector has been severely impacted throughout lockdown, and we wanted to develop an experience that helps to boost UK holiday bookings. Voice is our primary form of communication and we are all increasingly comfortable with Alexa in our homes, so this seemed the perfect way to give brands the reach that will encourage holiday makers to discover a UK holiday this year.”
Chatter is a sister agency to brand and digital communications agency, Gendall Design. With over 30 years of running agencies that seek to create human-centric experiences, Tess Gendall and Welch founded Chatter to focus on innovating at the point when intelligent voice technology and human behaviour meet.
The co-founders believe voice provides a more natural way of searching and communicating what customers want. By specialising in creating conversational experiences for brands and its customers, Chatter wants to enable personality at scale in an increasingly automated world.
