Travel and tourism forecasts become more accurate with analytics
DER Touristik has quite the reputation in Germany. It is one of the leading travel agencies in the country. One thing they need when they have such a big customer base is quick, reliable data. Prior to using SAS, forecasting would take up to four weeks on basic projections because the process was done manually on a spreadsheet with simple mathematical predictions. This would cause large gaps in the prediction versus result. To be more reliable, DER Touristik decided to implement SAS Viya. After using SAS, the usual 20% gap in predictions dropped to a mere 3% gap the following year.Learn More
