Year by year, GastroSuisse is publishing new data of the hotel and restaurant industry in a print edition. GastroSuisse is going to publish some of these data on its website. The association needs proposals how to structure and depict the data, and how to make them interactive for the member of GastroSuisse. The member should be able to compare its company with some benchmarks.
GastroSuisse has no online solution today. It is planned to integrate something like a dashboard into the existing GastroSuisse website. On the website of Gastro Suisse a closed area for members and an open area for everyone shall be created. In the closed area members should be able to make comparisons (focus benchmarking). The challenge is mainly about ideas on how to build a dashboard: focus on design, functions and structure, as well as optimal customer guidance.
The target group of the Streamline Publication Concept are members of GastroSuisse (hotels & restaurants). Member surveys offer information and data about turnover, cost structure, success according to turnover size, rental costs, cost of goods, annual wage total, etc. which can be used for the Streamline Publication Concept. Gastro Suisse has never gone deeper than the cantonal level due to the anonymity of members. Cantonal and national benchmarks should be possible within the online solution.
There are no limits to your imagination and creativity when meeting the challenge and designing a website, dashboard.
The existing print solution should not be used as a template for the online solution/dashboard. The hack teams should be completely free to develop their own ideas.

- Dashboard Proof of Concept - embedded in web site
- Project Proposal - options, cost, plan
Mock-up of envisaged target solution
Integration into existing Gastro Suisse website
Potential Platform / Tools
To be assessed and evaluated
Requirements - Interaction
- Filtering (by Kanton, sector, etc.)
- Personalization > requires member profiles
- Benchmarking - comparison with peers > requires highlighting of own categories
- Trends - development over time > requires time series
- Member profile data - equivalent to survey data
Microsoft PowerBI Implementation
Interactive Dashboard - click on Kanton bars and see how the rest of the dashboard updates (data source: HESTA)
Google Data Studio Implementation
Dashboard Prototype - single selection; data can be used directly (data source: Gastro Suisse survey, question 1)
Dashboard Prototype (Google Data Studio implementation) - multiple selection; data is "normalised" for better representation (data source: Gastro Suisse survey, question 3)
Dashboard prototype; no interaction available due to license restrictions
Proof of Concept (PoC)
This is how the Gastro Suisse interactive dashboard could like like as part of the interactive website (Microsoft PowerBI implementation).
Member access (closed user group) for additional functionality: user "gastrosuisse_admin", password "gastrosuisse"
