Amy told TechMoran, “Our biggest challenge is still an ongoing challenge, and it’s changing the mindset of the people about a sector that has functioned in a particular way – so trying to covert people to online booking is a challenge but one that is not insurmountable and I must say that there is a positive change every day.”
