Discover a Better Way to Revenue
In today’s increasingly competitive marketplace, it’s essential hoteliers adopt a more analytical and robust approach to revenue management. IDeaS’ strategic partnership with Guestline allows users to employ a more dynamic pricing model, where prices and availability for individual room types are set based on scientific analysis of data—not guesswork.
The integration between Guestline and IDeaS enables revenue managers to influence, forecast and price both group and transient business at a more optimal level. This empowers hoteliers to automate many manual, time-consuming tasks, be more strategic and concentrate on maximising revenue by forecasting and selling specific rooms for the best possible price.
IDeaS has paved the way to greater revenue with solutions that drive profitability, increase productivity and boost user confidence. By partnering with Guestline, IDeaS has furthered its mission to help transform the hospitality industry—from large chains to independent properties—with automation that produces immediate results.
“We are delighted to have completed a full rollout of IDeaS G3 RMS across our portfolio of seven Point A Hotels, and the new integration with Guestline’s Rezlynx PMS will take our group pricing and forecasting to a totally new level.” – Regis Morin, Director of Revenue, Queensway Group
So Much Data, So Little Time
Automated decision-making tools are not only necessary but critical in enabling hotels to outperform and outsmart their competition. Revenue managers must make any number of daily decisions and do it quickly. There are more than 100 million daily revenue decisions, 52 million daily pricing decisions and 48 million daily overbooking decisions calculated by IDeaS’ revenue management systems alone.
Without the proper tools to help understand this data, there is no way for any human to stay ahead of the onslaught of incoming information. Even if we had the brainpower to analyse the massive amount of data, the process to do so would be absurdly time-consuming and arduous.
Ultimately, as machines inevitably take over data processing and analysis, it is critical to establish the right balance between human intelligence and artificial intelligence. It is also important to accept the fact that everyone has a place in this process. The very least of which is using AI and automated technology wisely. This includes learning how we can best integrate these processes to achieve the fundamental goal: providing today’s customer with the insights they need to make a decision, at the right time, and ultimately increasing overall revenue for your organisation.
