UK-based data company ITG Creator is using Qlik’s visual analytics platform on Virgin Trains services to gain a detailed insight into customer opinions and travel experience.

ITG has worked with Qlik to develop the Awesometer, a dashboard-driven mobile and desktop reporting app, which provides the train operator with access to real-time visualisations of feedback from online customer surveys.

Information will be used to improve satisfaction with boarding, seating, as well as on-board entertainment.

ITG Creator marketing insights director Kinnari Ladha said: “We reviewed a variety of business intelligence systems and through Qlik Elite Solution Provider Differentia Consulting selected Qlik’s visual analytics platform as the stand-out technology for creating apps for Virgin Trains and other clients.

"Qlik’s technology has helped us transform data into actionable insights that give our clients an important business advantage."
