Improvement Of Service Quality By Using Ubiquitous Computing In Hospitality

2014-12-10
Economies of developed countries are primarily based on the services sector, where the hospitality industry plays an important role. As such, new service design and service innovation are vital for maintaining competitive advantage. Recently, ubiquitous computing has emerged as a key enabler in various industries in support of service innovation by facilitating the design of new services. This study aims to investigate the benefits provided by ubiquitous computing in the hospitality domain for improved service quality, customer satisfaction, and profitability. First, the literature on service quality is presented, and important quality dimensions are selected accordingly. After providing a brief review of related technologies and existing applications, a ubiquitous computing framework is proposed in support of innovative services for the hotel industry. Via the analysis of the framework, changes in business processes are exposed and the contributions of ubiquitous computing are discussed according to the identified service quality dimensions.

Analysis of economic data using robust methods
Coşar, Evren Erdogan; Akkaya, Ayşen; Department of Statistics (2002)
Export plays an important role in the economic development of a country. Because of its importance in implementing trade policies, there is an extensive literature on the estimation of export functions. Most of the studies on estimating export functions utilized conventional econometric techniques with the normality assumption of innovations. However, it has been recently recognized that non-normal distributions for innovations are more common in practice. IllThe main aim of this study is to estimate the ex...
A study on the relative strenghts of the European Community and Turkey in the information technology and telecommunications sector
Atilla, Ziya Hakan; Ateş, Hüseyin; Department of Business Administration (1988)
Information technology and telecommunications industry is important to countries regarding their economic development mainly because of two reasons. Firstly, it represents a large and rapidly growing sector of the economy, initiating production, employment, and wealth. Secondly, it is a driving force for the other sectors of the economy which it is in constant interaction. The European Community identifies the information technology and telecommunications sector as a strategic one and several programmes are...
A Proposed Framework for Governmental Organisations in the Implementation of BOT Model
Birgönül, Mustafa Talat; Dikmen Toker, İrem (1998-09-11)
The experience of most developing countries is that benefits of private sector participation models are only achievable under the existence of some prerequisite conditions associated with the legal arrangements, economical and political environments prevailing in a country. The Build-Operate-Transfer (BOT) model, which was developed as a way to acquire necessary infrastructure investments, without affecting a government’s budget, had some unsuccessful applications in Turkey as a result of insufficient legal...
Foreign Direct Investment and Technology Spillovers in the Turkish Manufacturing Industry
Sonmez, Alper; Pamukcu, Mehmet Teoman (2013-01-01)
Technology spillovers from foreign to local firms in emerging economies are considered to be the most important channel through which Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) influences the host economy. Empirical evidence about the existence, magnitude, and direction of FDI-related spillovers in these countries is contradictory, pointing to the necessity of conducting more econometric studies using firm-level data. The authors conduct an econometric analysis to assess the impact of FDI-related horizontal technology...
