About us

We were born in 2007 in Edinburgh, with the idea for the For-Sight CRM platform arising from issues hotels were having using the vast amounts of data they have on their guests to drive great marketing and a better experience. What was the issue? The data lived in silos on many different platforms.  For-Sight solves that problem by breaking down those silos, giving our customers a Single Guest Profile, full of rich insights, combined with powerful CRM and Marketing tools. We help hospitality businesses unlock opportunities to increase the lifetime value and experience of each guest at every stage of the guest journey.

With customers throughout the UK & Ireland, as well as internationally, we work with brands like The Belfry, Kew Green Hotels, Staycity Aparthotels, Dalata Plc, RBH Hospitality Management and many, many more.

We operate remotely, but we’d provide you with everything you need to make sure you’re able to work comfortably and efficiently from home. If you’re not based in Edinburgh, this role, would require travel.
