“Our successful implementation of frictionless customer journeys and digital transformation in the aviation industry is a solid launching pad for NEC Corporation of America to extend similar CX services to new markets including retail, hospitality, healthcare and financial services, and more,” Beroukhim said in a prepared statement.

In 2019, NEC introduced I:Delight, a digital services platform to support the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and digital transformation efforts.
