There’s a widening gap of executive experience in the travel industry.
Many successful organisations have cut back and been unable or unwilling to invest in growth or strategic projects. Full-time senior resources are expensive and there’s a scarcity of strategic experience in travel industry operations.
Contracting these services as needed gives your business the scope to invest in its growth and secure its future. The key is better planning, collaboration and delivery practices.
That’s where Applied Sense can help.
Established in 2009, our mission is straightforward: to help you do more with less.

What you can expect is to understand how to use your time more efficiently, and make the most of your investments in people, processes and technology. Whether you’re a start-up or up-scaling your operations, Applied Sense can help your business grow, develop the client base you desire, and implement the technology and solutions you need.
