Customer centricity in innovative business models with David Wohde, Founder of Acomodeo.
On the 1st of November, GTEC Frankfurt & Union Investment, hosted another very successful edition of the Innovare Meet Up, discussing relevant questions around innovation management. With more than 40 attendees, 100 Bretzels, wine, a majestic view on the Frankfurt skyline from the 7th floor of the GTEC office and a very special talk by David Wohde, founder of Acomodeo, it was a Meet Up not to forget!
The theme centered around Customer centricity in innovative business. David shared his road to entrepreneurship and the different phases his company Acomodeo went through, from growing pains to the successful company it is now.
His company Acomodeo, arranges apartments for longer stays in so-called boarding houses worldwide, which can be seen, compared and booked on the screen with just a few clicks. They develop booking solutions for large companies that can be integrated into the company’s own systems since 2015.
In the presentation, David shared his view on ‘the Holy Grail of Business’ by setting the costumer central and explaining how to funnel large groups in direct customer target groups for your company.
Sharing his view on business sales and growth, David sure knows what he is talking about.
Last year they had a request volume of 15 million euros and now have partner offices on the west coast of the United States, in India and in Singapore.
David showed that companies in this day and age must deliver faster innovations, better service, and an overall experience that attracts the right customer. It requires the right data & resources and a customer centric culture. It was very interesting to hear David explain how the customer experience is more then ever influencing and impacting current business development.
After his inspiring talk, there was room for drinks and chats, which went on till late in the evening.
The next Innovare of GTEC & U.I. will be held in January and will be a very special edition with international guests!
Stay tuned! Information will follow soon!
