“One year later, I can definitively say that the IDeaS RMS exceeds our automation needs for revenue management efficiency,” said Christopher Lynn, Director of Sales and Marketing, The Colonnade Hotel. “Manual yield management is the equivalent of using a flip phone to stay connected or driving a Fiat at the Rolex 24 in Daytona. I’d rather accelerate our path to profitability in a Porsche 962, and IDeaS allows us to do just that.”

“Without the IDeaS Revenue Management System (RMS) and the IDeaS New Hotels Service Success Package (NHSSP), it would take more work, and thus more resources, to achieve even a fraction of the system’s results. With IDeaS, once hotels open they will have more time to fully focus on the guests and provide the best customer service, which at the end of the day, is what a successful hotel is about.”

“The IDeaS RMS helped us move from revenue management to meaningful revenue management… While we’d love to have high-quality, seasoned revenue managers at each hotel, this isn’t always practical financially or geographically. The IDeaS RMS enhanced our ability to conduct effective cluster revenue management by alerting us to trends we either couldn’t drill down to manually or didn’t have the time to identify.”
