Being a growth company enables us to regularly attract new and interesting datasets, which can unlock new product directions.
About OTA Insight
OTA Insight is a scale-up within the hotel industry. Founded in 2012, with a vision to provide user friendly tools to hoteliers. Today we are considered the global leader in hotel BI and are working with 50,000+ hotels worldwide in 168 countries. As there are more than 1 million hotels worldwide, we are still filled with ambition to grow further.
We generate value to our customers by visualising actionable insights out of our vast datasets. Our tools help hotels to analyse their competition’s room pricing, analyse their hotel revenue, and find out where and when guests are looking and booking. Our products have a profound impact on the day to day activities of our customers, taking away guesswork and simplifying their routines. This has allowed us to grow rapidly over the past few years, adding new products as we solve new problems for our users.
2020 has been a brutal year for any company, but we are weathering the storm thanks to a loyal customer base. Despite operating in the hotel industry, we are proud to have achieved overall growth in 2020. We anticipate a few more bumpy roads ahead but are anticipating rocket mode again due to our strong financials, recent partnership with Tripadvisor and innovative products like Market Insight which is a Data Science-driven product development released in 2020 enabling COVID recovery for hotels.
