Aurélie Habert, in charge of strategic development and Disruption at AccorHotels, was explaining how AccorHotels is using Startup Flow to break its internal silos and scale its innovation processes.
« Lots of innovation initiatives were launched with too little information shared within the company. This lack of transparency and operational transversality was slowing down the choice, testing and deployment of innovative solutions we had sourced to potentially solve our business challenges. With Startup Flow we wanted to efficiently use and share all the data we collect at group level ».
The use of Startup Flow has already helped in speeding up the deployment of innovative solutions on a global scale. It was the case with « Too Good To Go », an app that lets users buy leftover food that would go to waste at closing time. « Today Too Good To Go is deployed in more than 60 Novotel hotels, 20 Mercure hotels and 10 Ibis hotels, and more than 5000 meals have been saved. The app’ is shown in Startup Flow for hotel managers to know about it and work with it » says Aurélie Habert.
Other example with Local Measure, a startup helping hotels turn data into personalized guest experiences : « this tech solution has been spotted by the COO of AccorHotels Pacific. It was integated in our Startup Flow platform and now 450 of our hotels are using it all over the world ».
