Transcript

  • 1. Yield ManageMent definition Yield management Yield management, also known as revenue management, is the process of understanding, anticipating and influencing consumer behavior in order to maximize revenue or profits from a fixed, perishable resource (such as airline seats or hotel room reservations). At the beginning it was used by airlines, hotels and car rentals now also in other industries, such as hairdressers, theaters, cinemas and shipping. (Source: www.wikipedia.com ) Yield Management: The science of prices demand for the optimization in operating revenue. Channel: Electronic booking channels, such as booking, HRS, Hotel.de, etc. or electronic travelagencies databases (GDS) like Amadeus, Sabre, Galileo and Worldspan.

  • 3. Hotelsoftware Here you see the graphic presentation of the sequence of our «Channel-Yield Management» services. In the following pages the various points of the graph will be presented and the strategy of Hotelpartner explained.
  • 4. (1) interface PMs Connections to the Front Office program The Front Office Program (Protel / Fidelio / Hogatex etc.) sends automatically every 5-15 minutes, during 12 months, the updated occup- ancy of each room category, so that Hotelpartner knows the number of rooms still to be sold in Hotelsoftware each category and this information regarding the relative demand of each day, can be seen as a first tendency, and thus the demand is already partially predicted. Advantage over the competition All the traditional channel management systems such as Rate Tiger, Channelrush, TravelCLICK, Channel Manager, Ezyield, etc. have no direct connection to the front-office program. Thus, it is not possible to sell the exact number of rooms represented in the Channel Market, therefore the booking to the *last room availability is not guaranteed. *Last room availability Through the last-room availability there is already an increase in sales as the latest information on accommodation availability is accessible as soon as there is a cancellation it is straight away deleted in the front office and directly rebooked in the channel market
  • 5. Price decision: Endkonsumen right Price at the right tiMe The interplay of different factors determine the size of the demand for each day, week and months. Here are the most important factors briefly described. Sensitive data: Events happening in the same region or village. Tourist, economic and perhaps even political events taking place simultaneously. Seasons: Hotelsoftware Holiday periods, an international calendar of school holidays, winter and summer destinations, distinctive range of destina- tions. Exhibitions and Fairs Calendar: Exhibition calendar of the city Major events: Concerts, political or sporting large events, conferences, other kinds of events, etc. Experience of the past: Analysis of the past, average prices of different days, weeks and months over past years Instantaneous utilization in terms of different remote data: • How long is it until the day of arrival? • For which day is it possible, a short term demand analysis: first survey, check the booking window 1-2 weeks prior to arrival (e.g highseason) or previous months in adavance e.g Easter, Christmas etc

Conclusion: In the holiday hotels is the length of stay and the season very important, so Hotelpartner works with strategic tools in the interest of the revenue’s optimization and better occupancy distribution. Through dynamic settings such as length of stay (minimum stay) and with restrictions such as close to arrival or close to departure etc. Hotelpartner manages centrally all the channels in real time. 2. Conclusion: In the city hotels is the monitoring and observation of hotel prices within the same region and city very crucial indeed. Therefore Hotelpartner, using a specially developed technology, supervises systematically and continuously, (7 days per week / 365 days per year) the development of the price structure in the hotels on the various channels and the pressure on certain single days of strong demand.

In comparison to traditional yield management programs HotelPartner optimizes individual pricing strategy of your such as IDEAS,Active Metrics and Optim, Hotelpartner hotel and is very targeted to the specific needs of each hotel. analyzes not only the Past (PMS History) but above all the Price parameters and pricing rules are defined together present information and the future (permanent market ob- with the hotelier and tailored according to the location and servation of Booking, HRS, etc.) and not only the position of configuration of the hotel. This allows any hotel, whether their own hotels but the entire market, (price,capacity of the a city hotel or a holiday hotel to better promote his own city,destination). potential and not to miss any opportunity in the framework This enables the hotel to be very flexible to the current of its possibilities and to choose the best possible channel situation of the market and to respond to channels changing management. market without taking any risk such as cyclical changes, prices changing behaviour of competitors etc. In the next page we show how HotelPartner Yield Channel Management Technology is connected with the online mar- Furthermore, even irrational pricing strategies of competing ket channels and how we publish price changes in real time hotels located in the same place are always observed and on each channel. considered in the decision of the daily price.
  • 8. (2) channels uPdate Once the relevant market price is defined it is updated in all the channels. Also other changes of rules and re- gulations on the length of stay (Minimum Stay) or other restrictions are centrally carried out on all channels. Important: The availability of each room is updated Hotelsoftware every 5-15 minutes with the front office program (Fidelio / Protel / Hogatex etc.) Conclusion: The pricing decisions is due to the different price para- meters and to the market monitoring, the front office system needs to update the permanent occupancy, prices and availability of all rooms every 5-15 minutes with all the channels. For this reason, Hotelpartner de- veloped several interfaces and connections to the front office program and to all channels. Advantage over the competition: By providing direct electronic connection from the channels to the hotel’s front office program, Hotelpartner can accurately check the room occupancy and through the channels sell to the last available room (last room availability). Moreover, the cen- tral management of all channels, can strictly implement the rate-parity. Hotelpartner has always the same price on every channel. For all channels, it’s part of the condition, that each channel is being charged with the same price (Best Available Rate). Many channels investigate now automatically the prices of other channels according to the contract conditions. Due to the strict rate parity conflicts can be avoided.

On the direct bookings via the hotel website not been generated and thereby given to other hotels in the Hotelpartner charges no commission from the principle that same place/city? direct bookings cannot be charged. Advantage over competitors: In comparison with other yield management systems (Ideas, Active Metrics, Optims etc.) or channel management pro- grams such as Rate Tiger, Channelrush, EZyield etc. Hotelpartner operates completely success-oriented. Unlike other providers that rent the usage of a software based on a monthly rent, Hotelpartner’s business is not based on the income of the monthly rent but on the inten- sive employment and responsibility of the channel sales increase, 7 days a week / 365 days a year.

In case 2 the comparison between the channels 4-star city hotel (100 rooms) sales managed by the hotel (2007) and the sales managed Turnover on Booking.com, HRS, Hotel.de and Expedia by Hotelpartner (2008) is really astonishing. 2007 managed by the hotel: 165’902 In all three cases, the figures of the 1st Quarter of 2009 2008 managed by Hotelpartner: 512’713 compared to the year 2008 have increased, although the Increase in percent: 209% number of overnight stays in the hotels have declined. 1. Quarter 2008: 117’685 1. Quarter 2009: 126’551 Conclusion 2: Increase in percent: 7.5% So far, Hotelpartner with all his customers, improved their turnover regardless of the location of the hotel. The incre- ase in turnover happens because of higher average prices on days of high demand and higher booking of rooms by a lower price on days of low demand through an intensive and daily monitoring of all the channels.
  • 11. (3) bookings The bookings are via fax or email directly from the channel to the hotel and by the reception into the front office program. This has a direct updating of the room availability on the chan- nels and as soon as the defined factors are met, such as the occupancy of the hotel, time of arrival, the market price, length of stay, etc., a price change, or a modification of the restrictions such as minimum length of stay, and other activities will occur. Hotelsoftware Advantage over the competition: Certain front-office systems can be completely integrated, so that in the future bookings will be automatically registered into the front-office equipment. Due to this you can save on administrative resources, like boo- kings registered by hand, employees could be devoted to more meaningful guest orientated activities. Hotelpartner can also analyze a single channel, if you wish, so that the the booking’s overview is visible on a centralized sys- tem for the control of guest’s informations and booking details. Due to the central archiving of all bookings, statistical reports can be generated for analysis of average prices, utilization, length of stay, demand on certain days etc. Hotelpartner through this analysis can judge better the demand’s development in the future to come.
