OM³: Digitalization and Connection of Airport Service

OM³ helps multi-retailer venues such as airports to realize their full potential and create a short-term return on investment by fusing the offline and online experience into one comprehensive suite of software applications and services. It enables complete customer interaction across multiple touchpoints. OM³ created immediate results at Frankfurt Airport, where the platform was initially implemented. The solution helped to reverse a significant downward trend in travel retail, observed by airports across the globe. For example, cross- and upselling increased by 35 percent and basket value increased by 300 percent.

OM³ consists of a unique and modular set of pre-integrated Omnichannel functionalities, services and infrastructure. It enables customized selection of functionalities according to airport-specific business requirements. The one-of-a-kind solution offers passengers a variety of convenient options for planning their travel and during the trip itself, during online and offline shopping at the airport and for accessing airport services. Passengers can get information about products and shop in advance of their trip or during layover and waiting times. OM³ transform airports to digital airports
