The rouble sank 1% to its lowest level since early-December, as concerns over western sanctions grew after the arrest of Kremlin critic Alexei Navalny and subsequent protests sparked criticism from U.S. officials. Most other currencies in Europe, the Middle East and Africa retreated as concerns over a vaccine rollout and spiking COVID-19 infections weighed, while the MSCI's index of emerging market currencies fell 0.3% to an over one-month low.
Dublin, Jan. 28, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Amusement Parks Global Market Report 2021: COVID-19 Impact and Recovery to 2030" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.

The global amusement parks market is expected to grow from $51. 67 billion in 2020 to $63. 89 billion in 2021 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 23. 7%. The growth is mainly due to the companies rearranging their operations and recovering from the COVID-19 impact, which had earlier led to restrictive containment measures involving social distancing, remote working, and the closure of commercial activities that resulted in operational challenges. The market is expected to reach $89. 17 billion in 2025 at a CAGR of 9%.

Universal Studios have The Walking Dead mazes with augmented reality elements. Coronavirus Pandemic: The outbreak of Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) has acted as a massive restraint on the amusement parks market in 2020 as governments globally imposed lockdowns and restricted domestic and international travel limiting the need for services offered by these establishments.

(Bloomberg) -- Diageo Plc, the world’s largest distiller, and high-end tonic maker Fevertree Drinks Plc signaled the drinks industry is set to benefit from rising U.S. consumption of tequila and cocktails.Diageo reported a surprise gain in revenue in the six months through December as sales of its tequila brands, which include Casamigos and Don Julio, soared 80% in North America. Fevertree’s 2020 sales dropped 3%, less than expected, as gains in the U.S. offset declines in Britain.“The pandemic led to a sustained shift to at-home consumption in the U.S., reflecting the growing interest in making long mixed drinks,” Fevertree said, adding it’s confident for 2021 despite uncertainties related to the coronavirus.Diageo’s North American sales rose 12%, offsetting declines in most other regions. Growth in tequila is partly attributed to Diageo’s 100% agave label, Chief Financial Officer Kathy Mikells said on a conference call with reporters, referring to the ingredient of the liquor which is increasingly becoming popular for perceived health benefits. Casamigos, a tequila brand co-founded by actor George Clooney and later acquired by Diageo, more than doubled its revenue in the period amid a surge in cocktail drinking at home during lockdowns.Shares of Diageo rose as much as 4.5%. Fevertree, which makes pink grapefruit soda for tequila-based Paloma cocktails, gained as much as 4.4%.Diageo said it expects to see improvement in sales and profit in the six months through June as the closure of bars and restaurants in the year-earlier period decimated a crucial source of its income.“Cocktail making continues to evolve -- we’re well beyond the margarita,” Mikells said. The CFO is set to leave in June after almost six years in her role, to be replaced by Lavanya Chandrashekar, head of investor relations and CFO for North America.Diageo is expecting “a significant improvement” in its performance during the key Chinese New Year celebrations over last year, although demand could be tempered in cities affected by local outbreaks, according to Mikells.(Updates with North American revenue in fourth paragraph)For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2021 Bloomberg L.P.

Dublin, Jan. 28, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Customer Self-Service Software Market - Growth, Trends, and Forecasts (2020 - 2025)" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering. The customer self-service software market was valued at USD 7.20 billion in 2019, and it is expected to register a CAGR of 20.94% during the forecast period from 2020 to 2025. An increasing number of organizations now understand the benefits of reliable and dedicated self-service portals for enhancing the company's overall brand image. Self-service portals provide customers with instant access to information, allow personalization, and save valuable time and organizational resources. It has become so crucial that, according to SuperOffice, 70% of customers now expect a company's website to include a self-service application. The customized knowledge-based self-service portal is playing a significant role in bringing in more website traffic. According to Salesforce, 39% of millennials check a company's FAQ first when they have a question, showing a strong preference for finding answers.Key Market TrendsRetail is Expected to Hold Significant ShareRetail is one of the major investors and adopters of the customer self-service solutions for many years; the trend is also expected to continue in the coming years. Retail companies are vying to deploy new technologies and are witnessing the growing adoption of self-service checkouts. Self-service has already made inroads in the product-scanning technology, which is being incorporated by retail majors. According to Jumper.ai, chatbot technology isn't just a customer service tool for retailers, as it also can collect unique first-party customer data. The recent trend of AI in the sector is also developing space for technology. According to analytics firm Invoca, nearly half (49%) of the US consumers trusted advice generated by AI technology in the retail category, more so than any other type analyzed. In May 2020, Wallmart used the first-ever AI-powered Self-Service Scales to its stores in China.US-based Zappix offers cloud-based Digital Self-Service solutions that leverage the speed of Visual IVR and the convenience of Robotic Process Automation (RPA) to provide enhanced customer experiences. Some of the claimed benefits of the solutions for retailers mentioned by the company are reduced calls to agents, lower contact center costs, enhanced customer experience, automation of repetitive processes, targeted revenue growth opportunities, enabling live agents to focus on high-value queries, and shorter average handling times per call, among others.Zappix also claims that its solution can be integrated with any CRM, Order Management System, and other back-end systems to connect customers directly to the retailer. The company also offers Zappix Actionable Analytics that tracks the customer journey and provides reports analyzing consumer behavior and trends. With other retail companies expected to follow suit, the demand for self-service solutions poised to increase. However, the risks of data theft, fraud, and losing a touch-point with the POS customers are expected to challenge the deployment of self-service solutions in the retail industry. North America Contributes to Maximum Market ShareNorth America has the largest market share and dominates the customer self-service software market. This is due to the rising social media penetration, significant self-service software vendors, and high cloud-based deployment of self-service solutions. The increasing penetration of web self-service solutions and mobile among consumers is also estimated to encourage the growth of the North American market in the next few years. Additionally, the presence of several leading customer self-service software players is anticipated to supplement the development of the market studied. US-based Big Fish Games uses an automated SmartAssistant that leverages information from the customer's web session (including keywords searched), to offer a 360 personalized service. Using this approach, Big Fish Games has increased its customer satisfaction to about 94%, achieved a self-service web rate of 96.4%, and saved USD 870,000. The recent COVID-19 outbreak further expanded the scope and adoption of customer self-service solutions in the retail industry. For instance, Walmart, in its 22 Canadian stores, deployed self-scanning outlets.Walgreen's Drugstore.com offers web self-service on Facebook and Twitter. Customers who search and shop online can chat with an agent, to find products, resolve issues, and learn about promotions. With this strategy, the company has raised order sizes by 20%, and saved around USD 350,000, through call deflection. 7-Eleven Inc., an American international chain of convenience stores, offers chatbot on Facebook Messenger to enhance the customer experience. The chatbot converses with the customers, using AI that powers automation, but also lets the users sign up for the 7Rewards customer loyalty program, and find a nearby store with available discounts and promotions.Large companies in the region have already embraced AI as a part of their digital transformation. For instance, banking service providers, like JP Morgan Chase, Bank of America, and Capital One, have already deployed virtual assistants in the form of chatbots. They have also successfully streamlined their back-end operations, such as workforce management, thereby saving high costs. IBM offers AI solutions for call centers, quoted that bot interactions in the banking industry are expected to hit 90% by 2022. Competitive LandscapeThe customer self-service software market is fragmented, due to the rise in self-service, like ATMs, Kiosks, and vending machines. The need for the software is also increasing, which makes the market attractive for many companies to enter with their product offerings. Moreover, many players are offering many solutions catering to the need of the consumers. Some of the key players in the market studied are Oracle Corporation, Salesforce.Com Inc., SAP SE, Microsoft Corporation, BMC Software Inc., and Verint Systems Inc., among others.May 2020 - Oracle announced the availability of Oracle Analytics for Cloud HCM which is built on Oracle Analytics Cloud and Oracle Autonomous Database, Oracle Analytics for Cloud HCM provides HR executives, analysts, and business people with better insights into workforce management by enabling a comprehensive view into data from across the organization.
