Webinar: How to Select a Hotel Revenue Management System
Posted April 16th, 2016
Duetto Research just posted slides from a webinar we did together that hotel operators may find interesting and informative. The topic is hospitality revenue management, which has gone from being an evolving practice with uncertain financial upside potential to being a strategic imperative with predictable revenue outcomes. The webinar slides can be found here.
Using Technology to Enhance the Guest Experience
Posted April 12th, 2016
The only thing that is constant is change, noted the ancient Greek scholar Heraclitus, and that is especially true in hospitality. The frontier on guest experiences is continuously advancing and the bar on guest expectations is always rising. An in-room amenity that in the past may have been something worth writing home about — “There’s a coffee maker right in the room!” “The bathroom has a hairdryer!” — quickly recedes in the rearview mirror. Any “surprise and delight” factor is generally short-lived. Sometimes the actual amenity disappears, as is the case of the Magic Fingers Vibrating Bed, a common feature in mid-priced hotels in the 1960s. Hoteliers must continuously scramble to stay ahead of the competition. They must always be on the lookout for the next big thing to further enhance the guest experience.
