– Big Data is becoming increasingly important in business hospitality. The large companies handle millions of data. our director, Diego Coquillat, He says that great leaders in the sector will not be catering companies , but technology companies selling hospitality. You who reclutáis million data, How do you think it will impact this new "oil" in the future of the sector?
The future is in the use will be given to data, definitely. It is the basis for all decision-making, and in the hospitality sector should not be less. It is key not only collect data in an organized manner, but the knowledge to treat them to provide relevant information, both the sector as a whole and to each individually hotelier, and that useful data may differ from one to another.
And here is the key, so far the data for statistical purposes for the sector generally contemplated, but the future is to disaggregate this data and provide each hotelier who benefit their particular making decisions; to provide the what, when, how much, where and at what price.
In a second step it is to use that data to make predictions sales tighter so we can manage the provision of stock and personnel as efficiently as possible, thus improving costs and increasing margins, already tight in the sector.

Beesniss part of our AppMarket since early 2018 and purchasing seek to consolidate the relationship. The startup specializes in intelligent management of orders to suppliers, with an offer that complements our portfolio of features such as stock control, Scanning invoices and personnel management.
