into a true business advantage

    Periscope enables your team
    to outperform the competition

Airlines invest heavily in pricing & revenue management (P&RM) systems and tools but they do not necessarily lead to a competitive advantage. Even top-notch systems miss revenue opportunities in individual markets and flights and force analysts to rely on fragmented “big data” from multiple sources. 


Enter Periscope®, web-based decision support solutions that enable analysts to outperform the competition. The Periscope® offering includes data management, decision support, and ongoing training to ensure that impact is sustained over time. The Periscope® data management capability integrates disparate data from multiple sources, creating a single source of truth so that analysts can focus on decision making rather than on aligning data. Complex data is made accessible through easy-to-use analytics allowing analysts to quickly get insights into opportunities for revenue improvement. 

They can also target actions by drilling down into the root of the opportunity and drive performance by measuring outcomes of pricing and steering actions.

Periscope® addresses the analytical needs of different audiences and also helps senior management to monitor overall performance and understand key business drivers.
