Academic Events are major demand drivers

PredictHQ tracks the key dates of every US college with more than 5,000 students. Think graduations, exam time and spring break. There is no other way to track the chaotic movement of students as all universities have their own schedules.

Variety of Academic Events

We capture six types of academic events

PredictHQ aggregates and verifies academic events for 963 institutions across 50 states, with plans to expand coverage across Europe. We are currently the only provider of academic event data, which enables businesses to factor in student demand to forecasting models. Once our machine learning models sort events into categories, highly specialized NLP models for each category kick in to add labels to every event so you can build hyper-targeted models. PredictHQ tracks six types of academic events and hundreds of labels within those types to ensure you are incorporating the most impactful and relevant events.

Institution Location

Track what events are happening per college

Tracking academic events is specific to each institution. With our single source of truth, you’ll save time manually searching university websites and calendars with our verified data. We know from our customers that it takes 15 minutes to manually source, verify, and store each event. Multiply that across all US universities with many events each, and you have quite an undertaking.

Predicted Attendance

Prioritize institutions that matter most to your business

PredictHQ models identify predicted student attendance at each school. This is critical demand intelligence to gauge each college's impact on your demand, enabling you to prioritize the institutions that matter most to your business.

Changes due to covid

Track student movement in a chaotic environment

Tracking and verifying event data is always complex. During the COVID and recovery era these challenges intensified. To simplify the range of college policies regarding attendance, we have sorted undergraduate full time student classes into three labels to categorize the education mode: online sessions, hybrid-sessions and in-person-sessions. This enabled us to arrive at predicted on-campus student attendance at each school.

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