Each day, hotels collect loads of data—from their PMS, reservation systems, benchmarking and pricing resources, social media, and more—and each day, they’re left to sort through that mountain of data, searching for a nugget of actionable information.
Well, it’s 2016. The age of “Big Data” and “The Internet of Everything.” It should be easy for hotels to understand their data and make intelligent and informed decisions for their business, yet it’s not. Instead, hoteliers are left with unwieldy spreadsheets, information overload, and irrelevant, static data. We had to do something about that.
In Berlin, SnapShot founders David Turnbull and Michael Heinze assembled an international team of industry insiders, united under the simple goal of making it easier to manage hotels.
