From sandy beach resorts to cruise ports and amusement parks, there is no doubt that a large part of Florida’s economy revolves around travel and tourism. In 2017, it’s estimated that over 116 million tourists visited the state and 1.1 million people have jobs related to tourism, contributing $51 billion to the state GDP, according to the Department of Economic Opportunity.
Beyond entertaining visitors, and lesser-known, Florida is part of a nationwide boom in life science and healthcare industries. The state boasts organizations conducting groundbreaking biomedical research, pharmaceutical, and medical device manufacturing, and tens of thousands of other healthcare businesses. Over 1,100 life sciences, companies call the state home, and Florida is leading the charge for bringing access to new treatments, drugs and medical technologies to the general population.
With tailored experiences popping up around every corner, social media taking over, and digitally native newcomers constantly shifting the landscape, businesses now realize that the human connection they share with their customers is what will truly make an impact on their bottom line. This is the era of converging business and technology, which gives progressive companies a unique opportunity to overcome their competition. They can become industry leaders by creating a standout, personalized customer experience (CX).
Many of the industries above have their roots in Florida but have struggled to keep up with customer expectations fueled by explosive advances of technology. We don’t blame them. Adapting to new technologies can be a daunting task, and to succeed, these businesses must partner with companies who can assist with maximizing this unique opportunity to leverage technology and digital innovation to revolutionize the CX.
