Basis Technologies' most relevant verticals and what you should know about them. This month we have some interesting content around the travel industry - read below to learn more.

Travel on the Rise

Despite some concerns about the current count of COVID cases, U.S. consumers are excited and eager to travel again. Nearly 60% of U.S. consumers are planning to take at least one vacation this summer. Additionally, consumers are ready to spend on their vacations. 28% of U.S. travelers say they will spend significantly more this summer compared to their 2019 travel budget (prior to the pandemic) due to the increased prices and accumulated savings. As the travel industry returns to normal, brands in the space will need to compete for the already cluttered attention of their target. Brands should use higher frequencies and higher impact media to depict why their services or offerings set them apart from others in the space. Source: Morning Consult, eMarketer

Say goodbye to spreadsheets and static presentations! Now you can communicate with members inside and outside of your organization through customizable, live dashboards.

With Data Canvas, you can create timely, ongoing, and visual reports that showcase your campaign’s performance, including over 35 metrics across 54 data fields. The feature automates reporting processes for your team, reduces the number of tools your organization needs, and minimizes errors resulting from manual calculations.

Clicks, conversions, video completions, and many other metrics can be added to a dashboard. After tailoring one of the starting templates to your specific needs, you can download and send it, schedule its delivery, and, for the first time, you’ll be able to create an account for your client to log into Basis and check how well their campaigns are performing!

Visual data storytelling

Data Canvas provides timely, ongoing, and visual communication. To use:

  • Determine what metrics you need to report on

  • Choose a starting template

  • Customize it any way you want

  • Share your dashboards with stakeholders

Consolidated tool stack

Data Canvas reduces operational costs resulting from

  • Installing, onboarding, training, maintaining, and support of new tools

  • Manual errors in transferring data from one program to another

  • Processing and managing multiple vendors and partners

Data Canvas has been a huge timesaver! Before I started using this feature, it could take me up to six hours to create a report for my clients. I would have to download several files, sort out the data points that I needed, create graphs and charts, and manually add the information to a presentation I could share.” -Audra Foley, VP of Media, TAG

Don’t imagine it. See it.
