MINNEAPOLIS – July 26, 2017 – MINNEAPOLIS – July 26, 2017 – IDeaS Revenue Solutions, the leading provider of revenue management software solutions and advisory services, is delighted to announce the expansion of its relationship with innovative hospitality management company, Provenance Hotels.

With increasingly elevated revenue management opportunities achieving consistent market share growth of 3 percent – and a partnership with IDeaS that spans back to 2012 – it was an easy decision for Provenance Hotels to continue their long-standing relationship with IDeaS.

With nine properties currently running on the flagship IDeaS Revenue Management System (RMS), Provenance’s entire portfolio is slated to transition to IDeaS G3 Revenue Management System (IDeaS G3 RMS). “We are very excited to transition all of our hotels to IDeaS G3 RMS as part of Provenance Hotels’ strategic investment to elevate our revenue management and distribution platforms. This is technology designed for the decade ahead, while our competitors are operating on systems designed for the previous two decades,” says Leslie Lew, vice president of revenue strategy for Provenance Hotels.

“Provenance looks forward to the added benefit of IDeaS’ analytics and business insights to improve revenue, market share and profitability to strengthen our competitive advantage as profit-focused hotel operators. As more and more data becomes available, we count on IDeaS’ superior analytics to cut through the ‘data noise’ and give our revenue leaders actionable intelligence at their fingertips – focusing on improving results rather than drowning in data,” Lew added.

Provenance Hotels owns and operates unique independent hotels, each with their own hand-crafted story, with several hotels under active development. Prior to implementing their current system in 2012, Provenance Hotels executed revenue management strategies through highly manual processes in central reservation systems and property management systems. Upon implementing IDeaS’ RMS, Provenance Hotels saw consistent share growth in all represented markets.

“Provenance is an innovative hotel company looking for a leading revenue management partner,” explains Jane Stampe, managing director for IDeaS. “After carefully reviewing multiple providers, Provenance selected a partner with a demonstrated commitment to their needs as a growing organization, and is equally invested in their success as a company and as individual hotels.”

Social Media: Engagement is Key

There are currently 2.3 billion active users of social media networks and savvy hotel operators have incorporated social media into their marketing mix. There are a few Goliath channels on which one must have a presence (Facebook & Twitter) but there are also several newer upstart channels (Instagram, Snapchat &WeChat, for example) that merit consideration. With its 1.86 billion users, Facebook is a dominant platform where operators can drive brand awareness, facilitate bookings, offer incentives and collect sought-after reviews. Twitter's 284 million users generate 500 million tweets per day, and operators can use its platform for lead generation, building loyalty, and guest interaction. Instagram was originally a small photo-sharing site but it has blown up into a massive photo and video channel. The site can be used to post photos of the hotel property, as well as creating Instagram Stories - personal videos that disappear from the channel after 24 hours. In this regard, Instagram and Snapchat are now in direct competition. WeChat is a Chinese company whose aim is to be the App for Everything - instant messaging, social media, shopping and payment services - all in a single platform. In addition to these channels, blogging continues to be a popular method to establish leadership, enhance reputations, and engage with customers in a direct and personal way. The key to effective use of all social media is to find out where your customers are and then, to the fullest extent possible, engage with them on a personal level. This engagement is what creates a personal connection and sustains brand loyalty. The February Hotel Business Review will explore these issues and examine how some hotels are successfully integrating social media into their operations.
