Brandon Xavier

Founder

OnCall

Brandon Xavier is the Founder of OnCall, a mobile (for iOS and Android devices) service that enables consumers and businesses to recruit and retain experts from a multitude of industries.

Along with reviews or background information about each professional, as well as the freedom to video chat with the candidates of your choosing, OnCall allows you to find and hire the right specialist – in just a few minutes.

This achievement represents a broader theme concerning Brandon's approach to technology, and, with regard to clients and consultants, a more immediate and intimate way for businesses to connect with colleagues throughout the world.

That principle humanizes technology: It is Brandon’s acknowledgment that we are inherently social beings – we value face-to-face communications, or the appearance thereof – and, to the extent that a mobile application can bridge oceans and continents and reconfigure data into a high-resolution image of a friend or coworker, that the only thing separating two people at opposite sides of the globe is a wafer-thin piece of polished glass, when technology makes this possible – when it gets out of the way – it fulfills our most humane instincts.

Brandon makes that experience possible by combining the eternal values of the liberal arts with the timely virtues of the latest forms of technology.

This union gives users the options they want with the sense of personalization they crave.

A native of Toronto, Brandon holds a BSc in Computer Science from Staffordshire University (UK) and an MBA from the University of Toronto.

Coming Up In The June Online Hotel Business Review

Feature Focus
Sales & Marketing: Who Owns the Guest?
Hotels and OTAs are, by necessity, joined at the hip and locked in a symbiotic relationship that is uneasy at best. Hotels require the marketing presence that OTAs offer and of course, OTAs guest’s email when it sends guest information to a hotel, effectively allowing OTAs to maintain “ownership” of the guest. Without ready access to guest need hotel product to offer their online customers. But recently, several OTAs have decided to no longer share a data, hotels are severely constrained from marketing directly to a guest which allows them to capture repeat business – the lowest cost and highest value travelers. Hotels also require this data to effectively market to previous guests, so ownership of this data will be a significant factor as hotels and OTAs move forward. Another issue is the increasing shift to mobile travel bookings. Mobile will account for more than half of all online travel bookings next year, and 78.6% of them will use their smartphone to make those reservations. As a result, hotels must have a robust mobile marketing plan in place, which means responsive design, one-click booking, and location technology. Another important mobile marketing element is a “Click-to-Call” feature. According to a recent Google survey, 68% of hotel guests report that it is extremely/very important to be able to call a hotel during the purchase phase, and 58% are very likely to call a hotel if the capability is available in a smartphone search. The June Hotel Business Review will report on some of these issues and strategies, and examine how some sales and marketing professionals are integrating them into their operations.
