Excel and SQL for Hotel Data Analytics

Excel and SQL for Hotel Data Analytics
Self-Paced, Online Training Course

Turn raw PMS/POS data…

into hotel analytics in seconds.

You, the Excel Power User for your hotel.

One of the most important assets that any hospitality company can have is an Excel Power User. Everyone, regardless of the department, turns to them for answers when they have an Excel question. They are the person who is called upon by Marketing to extract and clean a customer list and by the GM to do special analysis. This is the person who can take raw information, like PMS and POS data, and turn it into beautiful, intelligent Excel reports in minutes.

There are two kinds of Microsoft Excel users in the hospitality business: Those who make neat little tables, and those who amaze their colleagues with sophisticated charts, data analysis, and seemingly magical formulas.  From analysts to administrative assistants, anyone can be their hospitality company’s Excel Power User. Most important, whether you work for a major brand or an independent, all Excel Power Users have job security and career prosperity.

Why you need this training?

Excel continues to be, by far, the most popular platform for intelligence discovery and information dissemination in the hospitality business.  That is why every hospitality company needs an Excel Power User. The skill set taught in this course is applicable to every department, from Engineering to Marketing to Finance to Revenue Management. 

This course will turn you into the Excel Power User for any hotel. This training is for Excel users who know the basics but need to master the process of manipulating data to create advanced reports and analysis.  It is the only course ever offered that uses real PMS/POS data to teach Excel tools and techniques.

This Excel course taught me useful insights on how to look at real-live data from any PMS.  Not only can I now make better use of historical data, but I can do a variety of analysis that allows me to optimize revenue.  With Robert’s professional way of explaining the course material during the different modules, this became the optimal way of understanding the material and allowing me the opportunity to practice on my own.
Nicolas Heeger, Director of Revenue Management

This training is specifically designed for hotel professionals who want to reach the Power level of Excel skills.

The failure of many Excel training courses is their inability to connect tools and techniques to on-the-job scenarios. In this course you will only work with data, examples and exercises that are hospitality industry specific. The entire course is then taught using OWL’s proprietary PMS data file. This course focuses on the tools and techniques that are required for you to be successful at manipulating raw data and converting it into actionable intelligence.

I can’t begin to tell you how engaging your courses are. I oversee two independent hotels and I’m somewhat left to my own devices when it comes to tools and guidance. Needless to say I have a number of Excel workbooks I have built on my own by extracting PMS data and so far these courses have shed new light on how I can improve them and my thought processes.
Mark Grossman, Area Director of Revenue Management
