“Babel and IT & Beyond, have together managed to give the CRM systems a quantum leap by tailoring a unique system capable of following up with guests through their entire journey, understanding their preferences, anticipating their requests, and also taking their feedbacks for brand improvement. This system has transformed our previously installed culture of hospitality from an excel sheet to a detailed system. Today, we are able to understand the guest, propose his preferred items, book his preferred table, call for feedback, channel the feedback proposed for improvement… This system has not only made the interaction easier and the knowledge reachable, but was reflected on the guest journey who admired the enhanced performance as we were able to exceed their expectations”, said Mr. Nassim Gharzeddine, CRM Manager at Afkar Holding.
The new CRM system is now fully operational within Babel’s three branches.
We make a difference in people’s lives by surpassing clients’ expectations and exceeding our own. We strive to authentically bring out the best from our neighboring community, through envisioning our design with boldness, molding our innovation with care, adapting our creativity to the customer’s needs and crafting our dishes with the utmost attention.
Babel brand was established in Lebanon in 2009 followed by the opening of Babel in Dbayeh in 2012, then Babel Bahr in Amchit in August 2013.
