Travel and Leisure Analytics

Companies in the travel and leisure industries need to develop scalable and flexible delivery mechanisms to attract and retain customer loyalty. Consumer behavioral patterns / insights and channel preferences should be at the heart of all customer acquisition and retention strategies. Another key determinant is the timing and relevance of offers when reaching out to consumers, given the gamut of information channels available to consumers these days.
