1.2 Literature Review of Work Integrated Learning

The hotel business is the service sector business, where the satisfaction of the customer is most important (Dominici & Guzzo, 2010). The understanding of the thinking of customer is the key factor which makes any hotel successful. The growing competition in this sector makes it challenging for all competitors (Jasinskas et al., 2016). Not only is the competition also the fulfilment of demand of customers challenging these days. Every customer is different in nature and behaviour, and their demand may be different in a different scenario. The handling and fulfilling customer's demand are the main priority of Hyatt. This is taken carby Customer Relationship Management which is solely responsible for the satisfaction of hotel customers. Relation management theory is one of the theories that aid the organization to maintain an ongoing level of engagement with the customers. This aims to create a partnership between the organization and its patrons. It is the tool which creates a solid affinity with the customers with the use of data as well as sales analysis in order to understand the marketing trends.

Hyatt Hotel analyses and values every movement and comments of the customer so that they will not leave any gap between demand and fulfilment of the customers. Every staff of the hotel is trained so well that they will try to give their best at any moment to their customers. Also, if there will be any mistakes from the hotel side, then they will rectify it at any moment without taking any more time. To understand the movement, comments and feedback from the customers, Hyatt hotel has the data management system, which is also known as Master Data Management (Kumar Das & Mishra, 2011). In this system, they make the profile of the customers who visited and booked their hotel twice or thrice and they track their behaviour which makes hotel staff easy to understand the demand of the customer and they prepare for the upcoming challenges very well and fulfil the customer's demand in no time. This makes staff a lot easier to handle potential customers. Also, this kind of behaviour makes customers visit the same hotel whenever they are in that place. Hyatt hotel is one of the successful brands in the world, and also the customers seek to get high from the hotel side. When they pay or book for the hotel to stay, they will expect to get high customer services from the hotel. They also push lots of advertisements through social media to retain their costumers (Leung et al., 2017). The potential customer of Hyatt always wants to stay back in the same hotel due to its strong customer relationship.

Tran, Arneault & Clark (2019), have stated that social media plays an important role in order to attract customers. However, this paper also highlighted the gap model services including the four gaps that are comprised of listening gap, performance gap, communication gap and services design. This model helps the organization to focus on all the gaps that aid the organization to fulfil the needs and demand of the customers. Social media highly impact on the success of the organization as it is a platform where the customer gives their feedbacks which can be negative as well as positive. Therefore the organization needs to use gap model which aids them to fulfil all the gaps and accomplish all the predefined goals of the organization. The way organization respond to their customers is unique and accurate, and the way they maintain data from the response and feedback from the customers make them strong to follow their potential customer (Walls et al., 2011). Since this is a world of technology and online platform, Hyatt hotel is also used as the online media and social sites for its promotion and branding. This kind of activity makes them very strong to get in touch with their customers and the frequent updates from the hotel and information will be easily available and can be seen on the internet.
