How Big Data Will Transform Hospitality - Part 3

Revenue Management


Hoteliers have practiced revenue management in the quest to provide the right room at the right rate to their customers for decades. However, access to Big Data in making these pricing calculations going forward offers hotels much greater opportunity to fully leverage their inventory and maximize revenues. Today’s best hospitality revenue management tools provide the required information to empower hotel managers to make informed decisions regarding their room rate structure, at any given time. Time is of course one of the crucial pieces in the hotel rate decision making process, along with information regarding the individual hotel guest and a number of other variables as well.

Traditional hotel revenue management software lacks the real-time data necessary in order to keep rates optimized at any given moment. These legacy systems simply cannot keep up with the ever-shifting market condition realities of the 21st century. The number of factors that need to be taken into account within the revenue management equation has grown exponentially as well. The influence of social media and online reviews, local weather, flight information, and individual customer segmentation are only a few examples among the plethora of complex data sets which must be effectively compiled. This vast amount of data must then be analyzed against complicated formulas to extract the maximum rate possible for a given customer, on any given day, with both speed and scalability.

What is truly needed by the hospitality industry is a revenue management optimization tool designed for the ever-changing challenges faced by today’s hoteliers.
