Web.com Small Business Toolkit: KnowDelay (Travel Predictor)

January 3rd, 2013 ::


Travel delays can mess up even the most organized business traveler, especially this time of year where weather surprises can mean missed opportunities and missed business meetings. KnowDelay hopes to help solve the problem by alerting travelers of weather-related flight delays or problem flights 72 hours in advance. Then KnowDelay goes one step further by suggesting alternative flights. How do they predict delays? According to KnowDelay, they use a weather “recipe” that includes information about different weather events and combine that with predicted airport performance. It must work, since KnowDelay boasts 90 percent accuracy.
