Airline takes to the cloud for deeper social analytics and customer connection
SAN FRANCISCO – August 14, 2014 – Today GoodData announced that Virgin America, the award-winning California-based airline, has chosen GoodData to power analytics for the company’s digital marketing efforts across social media, online promotion, advertising and web content. With GoodData, Virgin America can better optimize digital marketing resources to increase bookings, gain customer insights, and track performance against key metrics.
Virgin America chose GoodData to bring together all of their customer data from digital marketing promotions for a tangible, holistic view. GoodData will centralize and automate the analytics process for key digital marketing data, from collection and integration to visualization, custom dashboards and ad hoc analysis.
By bringing together all relevant information into a single environment, GoodData will help Virgin America gather deeper insights into guest and customer interaction with the brand. Best of all, by choosing a purely cloud-based analytics solution, Virgin America will benefit from a more efficient user experience, ultimately helping the team to make more effective marketing decisions.
