Travel marketplace Ixigo has announced the launch of a PNR prediction feature for its ‘trains & hotels’ app.
Users will now be able to get near accurate predictions of whether their ticket on any train will confirm or not.
The feature also shows the probability of a ticket getting confirmed if the booking has already been made, giving users the option to decide whether to make alternate travel arrangements.
Ixigo claims its has mined over 10 million PNRs over the last two years making its more accutate than other services on the market.
The push to launch the feature was driven by users making over 50,000 PNR status checks and nearly 200,000 train information requests on the Ixigo app every day.
In order to make the predictions, the company employs machine learning algorithms which currently are at 90% accuracy and will soon achieve 95% accuracy.
Apart from predicting PNR status, users can also make budget hotel bookings, cab bookings, packages, station alarms, platform numbers and coach positions of trains through the app.
