Benchmarking analysis tools
The «BAK Tourism Intelligence®» enables simple, comprehensive and graphically appealing international benchmarking of destinations and regions.
The aim of the benchmarking studies is to analyse the success and international competitiveness of tourism regions and destinations. In doing so the specific success factors of the tourism locations studied are identified, strength/weakness analyses are carried out and development guidelines are pointed out. In addition to various analysis products and consulting services, the «BAK Tourism Intelligence®» is at the centre of this. The online tool enables international benchmarking of destinations and regions. They can compare themselves with an international sample and in this way determine their own strengths and weaknesses. It can be tested free of charge by registering as a guest at www.destinationsmonitor.com.
Based on statistical-economic models, forecasts are made for tourism regions and destinations. Tourism forecasts provide a central basis for decision-making in order to align the tourism sector even more specifically with the new and future challenges of the global market. Thanks to the integration into the model world of BAK Economics, detailed and well-founded economic forecasts for the tourism industry can be developed and implemented.
