Lodging Interactive, the leading digital marketing and social media engagement agency exclusively serving the hospitality industry, today announced its expanded CoMMingle Live ChatSM service to now include real-time sharing of hotel promotional materials during online chats with potential guests.

"When a visitor navigates through a hotel's website and engages via live chat, CoMMingle Live Chat agents will have an opportunity to share hotel specific promotional materials in real time," stated Mr. DJ Vallauri, Lodging Interactive's Founder & President. "CoMMingle Live Chat now serves as a real-time sales agent, 7 days a week, where there currently is none on the hotel's website."

Lodging Interactive's CoMMingle Live Chat service is a fully managed, real-time service for hotels and resorts. CoMMingle Live Chat elevates online customer service, customer engagement and sales to an entirely new level and has shown to increase corporate group and social event RFP submissions.

  • Real-time customer engagement throughout the booking process
