New generations are bringing a more broad perspective were preventing a problem before it happens, results to be more efficient, less expensive and more customerfriendly. The service industry is benefiting from this approach creating more value within their customers and differentiating themselves among other competitors. The use and development of technologies like softwares specifically created to meet the needs of the service industry are key to custom-made every experience according to the basic principles of each providing company.
