Broward County’s Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport takes decision intelligence to new heights.

Key Figures

PARKING PRICING ANALYSIS USING WHAT IF SCENARIOS

Using historical parking data and “what-if” sliders, Broward County Aviation performed analysis of transactions and revenue from short term parking in the garages. Analysis provided insight that led to decisions on the rate structure for both new offerings and current parking pricing, resulting in increased revenue for the airport.

BUSINESS CONCESSIONS SALES & REVENUE PER ENPLANED PASSANGER

The ability to analyze business concessions gross sales for the food & beverage sector, rapidly calculate Revenue per Enplaned Passenger, and track aging reports improved management of the financial performance of the airport.

TRENDING & GROWTH DASHBOARDS

Data from different sources were connected and visualized in multiple dashboard and analytic views, giving Broward County Aviation automated access to live data without hours spent wrangling data from spreadsheets.

THE CHALLENGE

Between parking, shopping, eating, and flying, the gatherable data at an airport of this size can be overwhelming. Pulling usable numbers out of that sea of data was both a challenge and a waste of time for skilled analysts who were spending too much time wrangling data instead of analyzing it.

Broward County Aviation needed a business intelligence solution that would provide governed access to the insights hidden within operations data spread across a multitude of systems. They needed to organize and present the insights each function and department needed individually and as a whole for greater understanding in order to make informed decisions.


THE SOLUTION

Pyramid Analytics partnered with AAJ Technologies to provide an end-to-end enterprise BI solution which enabled Broward County Aviation to produce 49 Dashboard views for the review and management of business operations. Broward County now has three completed data models – a Statistics model for gross sales and passenger information, a Billing Transaction model for general ledger/accounting, and a Parking model. Building and blending these models has enabled Broward to view reports in a way that makes sense, is automated, and gives much deeper perspective and meaning – ultimately helping to make better business decisions.

Benefits

Based on this initial success, Broward County Aviation plans to expand their use of Pyramid Analytics in the coming year both to include further parking data and to include additional models such as, “an Airport Operations Data Model which contains all of our gates, flights, and other airport real time data. Connecting that to geospatial data will help us better learn where our customers are and when.”

Pyramid Analytics enabled us to change our parking business model by unlocking previous data insights we could not get to.
