What is PredictHQ?
Real-world events drive predictable impact but businesses don’t know when, why or how. PredictHQ unlocks instant profit hidden in plain sight, starting with travel and transportation, which alone is a $2.3 trillion opportunity.
PredictHQ is the only unique data intelligence platform that understands the impact of these events globally and at scale. Companies like Uber, AirBnb, Booking.com, Accenture, Accor Hotels and others are using this to instantly unlock additional profitability which was previously unobtainable.
Data from thousands of sources (proprietary and public) are aggregated, cleansed, enriched and ranked to provide intelligence for better pricing, demand and planning decisions. As more customers use the platform and add data (real and usage-based), the system gets smarter, enabling a growing array of new solutions within and beyond travel and transportation.
