Fact Combiner Background Image
ABOUT THE PROJECT
One of the biggest challenges in the travel industry is how to deliver a given offer to the customer to make a purchase. In response to these needs, we have created Fact Combiner - an algorithm-based system that matches the offer to user behavior on the website using machine learning and AI. Eventually, the customer receives recommended trips to their needs, and the tour operator gains a satisfied customer and increases the value of the shopping cart and conversion rate.

Recommending products to users

The tool automatically recommends products to users thanks to the Machine Learning mechanism, which learns from users’ behaviors, predicts future customer actions, and chooses the products of their preferences. How does it work? If enough data is collected, the association rule gets activated, and the algorithm compares the frequently browsed products and places similar offers next to each other. If the mechanism knows nothing about the user yet, it recommends the TOP options. The client can view the results as a “recommended offers” bar on the main product page. The system generates recommendations for nearly 60k users in real time.


Improving marketing campaigns

The algorithm displays the suggestions for the client and gathers data for automation marketing purposes. What kind of data does it collect? Everything that may matter in the marketing context: how many people were looking at the particular trip or their geolocation data, the frequency of entries, the browsed and booked offers, and many more. Based on this, the algorithm creates a marketing profile of the client that can be later used for optimizing marketing campaigns. The client can also access statistics anytime they need it to analyze them.
