If you’re a revenue manager of a large hotel chain, we believe one of the most common concerns is ‘how can I create chainwide offers & discounts in one go’. Hotels tend to increase prices when running full and usually provide offers when running lean. So, the necessity for chainwide discounts becomes even more conspicuous when you want to offer last minute deals across all properties. And, if you wish to drive more direct bookings, creating offers is of paramount importance.
Most booking engines today still do not feature this technology. So, at best, you will have to go to each property and tweak the rate plans and discounts manually. The amount of time wasted in setting up offers manually across the chain is significant. Why? A hotel room is a perishable commodity. If you can’t sell it today, then you cannot sell it tomorrow.
