Our Solution

The Challenge

Tourism is a very exciting and dynamic sector to work in. But a visitor economy is also very complex. Destination managers and marketers are required to have their fingers on the pulse all the time and see the bigger picture - quite a struggle when you are so busy with everything else. We’ve developed Acorn T-Stats to make this easier to manage.

What is Acorn T-Stats?

Acorn T-Stats brings together all data relevant to your destination in one web-enabled database. It is custom built for you, as every destination collects different data and has different needs and priorities. Sharing information is easy, as it’s online, which also allows data to be collected from the accommodation and attraction sectors.

By bringing all your data together, all this information is in one place, which gives you extra power for analysis, generating reports and really knowing what is going on in the visitor economy.

Below lists some examples of statistics you may choose to keep in your Acorn T-Stats system.
