Get updates on school holidays and create efficient operations 

Real time event notifications delivered right to your inbox

Spring Break could result in an unexpected surge in customers for bars and restaurants, resulting in insufficient inventory levels and a dip in sales opportunities. Similarly, some universities might start to give Veteran’s Day off for their students which could cause a dip in business sales in the surrounding area that week. Tracking school holiday updates and quickly making decisions around inventory or staffing can be challenging for many. With PredictHQ Notifications, you can receive real time insight into changes being made.

The event alerts platform notifies you when school holidays change or when new ones are scheduled, giving businesses quick insight into how demand may fluctuate. Now you can make faster decisions around your business operations and create efficiencies like never before.

Making Flat Event Data Intelligent

One school holiday is not like the other

Thousands of international school holidays could make for hundreds of different data sources to manage, but who’s got time to sort through them all? Not you or your team. PredictHQ pulls multiple data streams and third party APIs across more than 18 categories (and counting) into one intuitive information source (and when we need to we roll our sleeves up and manually collate and aggregate data so you don’t have to), which means all the school holiday information that could impact your business’ profitability is right there in one handy place.

It’s not just about pulling and aggregating events into one place though; PredictHQ’s API practically thinks for you too. We take events at face value and make them intelligent, giving you all the information you need to make educated decisions, not educated guesses. Looking for a location-based API? Create event-based user segments as a foundation for successful ad campaign targeting by using PredictHQ’s API. Push family travel deals to the school holiday segment in the lead-up to particular school holidays, adjust the price of flights, tables and cabs for families before they go on holiday, or forecast when you might need to roster more staff on a busy weekend - the world’s your oyster when it comes to how you use our smart data. You can even do handy things like use IATA codes to search for events, search within a geographical radius, or query multiple locations and categories at the same time. Sound complicated? It’s not with PredictHQ.

You can’t prepare for what you don’t see coming
