In this session you’ll l learn how Tableau improved revenue management and provided operational insight for future forecasts at Kimpton. Within Kimpton there was a historic issue with fragmented data and reporting structures. Managers and leaders across the organization struggled to recognize future revenue risks and opportunities as they related to corporate and hotel forecasts.
Kimpton began to use Tableau as a solution to house all of the data and serve as the primary reporting platform to provide “real-time date reporting.”
The enhanced reporting functionality now enables leadership to gain valuable insight from high-performance data analysis across the whole organization (+10k employees). Answers are now available in seconds, rather than days or weeks.
