7 Steps to Travel Success: The Importance of Data

You’ve heard it all before… data is essential. The number of training courses and conferences built around the importance of user data, employee data and customer data is not something that’s going away any time soon. And for good reason – access to the right data at the right time leads to more informed decisions. However, many businesses still struggle to not only analyse their data, but to capture it in the first place.
