Predictive Analytics Drives Better Crew Travel Management

, predictive analysis brings this data to life.Inspecting data in order to spot trends and use them to change behaviors makes the collection of management information (MI) more valuable, as it can be used to inform data-driven decisions and influence savings strategies. Going forward, the use of artificial intelligence (AI) will help root out patterns more quickly, and could eventually introduce more automation into what can be a time-consuming and complicated booking process.There are some essential steps to get your data analysis working right:Data consistency: Firstly, examine how you capture your MI
