    Increased efficiency & customer satisfaction

    Nova Find offers considerable advantages for both passengers and Lost and Found staff. On the one hand, lost property reports can be submitted online independent of date and time; on the other hand, the high degree of automation relieves Lost and Found office staff and makes life easier.

    „With the introduction of Nova Find, we have definitely exceeded our expected increase in efficiency“, says Helmut Meierdierks, Manager of the Hamburg Welcome Center.

    Matching algorithm & automated customer communication

    Based on existing Lost and Found reports, the Nova Find matching algorithm finds the best possible match. The return process can be started with a single click. Customer communication starts automatically afterward. The customer communication complies with the design specifications of the customer‘s preferred communication channel.

    Perfectly mastered: challenging conditions during introduction

    At Hamburg Airport, the Hamburg Welcome Center is in charge of the Lost and Found system. In addition to the core team, numerous employees showed interest in using Nova Find – a special challenge for a product launch in times of pandemic-related short-time work!

    The Nova Find „Train the Trainer“-model led to success: The core team was introduced to administration and application levels during our online training. They later passed on their knowledge within their own organization.

    Valuable marketing for Hamburg Airport

    Nova Find significantly increases the return rate of lost items. In addition to the associated reduction in storage costs, there is another aspect that should not be underestimated: Nova Find writes a new success story with every returned item. Those stories are gladly retold by satisfied customers, which helps to strengthen the Hamburg Airport brand in the long term – passengers become brand ambassadors!

    “Great solution, great support!“
