About DataSwell

DataSwell was founded in 2009 by Scott Alvis and Patrick Durst with the goal to aggregate 1000’s of travel related datasets for easy analysis by travel professionals. Since then we’ve aggregated financial and operating data from 100’s of global travel companies and now allow our users to easily chart, analyze, and dashboard the data in our hosted application. Our users can quickly benchmark their performance, understand their customers and competitors, and receive notifications when their critical data is updated. We offer a 10 day free trial of all our plans. View a quick demonstration of our travel data platform.

We are a self funded start up, built on the latest cloud technology, extremely nimble, and very efficient in loading and managing data. All our data is updated within 48 hours of it being published by companies or government entities so you always have the latest data at your fingertips.

We also offer enterprise services to companies with 5 or more users and can integrate companies’ private data together with our public data to create a unique travel data portal. If you are interested in our enterprise services please contact us and we can discuss your unique needs.
