IDeaS Integrates Voice Control with Revenue Management Technology for Ultimate Productivity

ITB Berlin: IDeaS Revenue Solutions Debuts Hospitality’s First Voice-Driven Revenue Management Platform

Berlin, Germany. March 07, 2018 -

Voice interaction and smart speakers are shifting the paradigm on how people interact with their technology at home, and many businesses are scrambling to adopt this same technology in the workplace to drive efficiency and productivity. A key challenge in the adoption of voice technology is the integration with existing legacy platforms and tools.

IDeaS Revenue Solutions has broken this barrier for hotels with the unveiling of the first voice-based interface designed for a revenue management platform. IDeaS G3 Revenue Management System (IDeaS G3 RMS), the most widely used solution in the industry, is now compatible with devices like Amazon’s Echo and Google Home, in multiple languages.

In the hospitality world, voice interaction will give hoteliers, at all levels, instant access to a myriad of performance data such as occupancy, room rates, competitor rates, forecasts, revenue details and more. Revenue management solutions are a critical intersection point, often storing data from a multitude of disparate systems. Voice technology now makes accessing all that data even simpler, driving more efficiencies and productivity within an organization.

IDeaS’ voice interaction technology will be on display daily at ITB Berlin. All show attendees and media are invited to come to Hall 8.1, Booth 110 to see the integration with IDeaS G3 RMS in action. 

“Our goal is simple: to continually push the innovation boundaries to enable hotels’ success, whether it be deep machine learning, artificial intelligence or voice-enabled interaction. Hotels rely on us to provide the most accurate and insightful data to drive optimal revenue strategy,” said IDeaS’ founder and chief scientist, Dr. Ravi Mehrotra. “IDeaS pioneered revenue management as we know it today, and we continually evolve to reflect our newest innovations that help clients achieve success.”

Guest Service: Empowering People

Excellent customer service is vitally important in all businesses but it is especially important for hotels where customer service is the lifeblood of the business. Outstanding customer service is essential in creating new customers, retaining existing customers, and cultivating referrals for future customers. Employees who meet and exceed guest expectations are critical to a hotel's success, and it begins with the hiring process. It is imperative for HR personnel to screen for and hire people who inherently possess customer-friendly traits - empathy, warmth and conscientiousness - which allow them to serve guests naturally and authentically. Trait-based hiring means considering more than just a candidate's technical skills and background; it means looking for and selecting employees who naturally desire to take care of people, who derive satisfaction and pleasure from fulfilling guests' needs, and who don't consider customer service to be a chore. Without the presence of these specific traits and attributes, it is difficult for an employee to provide genuine hospitality. Once that kind of employee has been hired, it is necessary to empower them. Some forward-thinking hotels empower their employees to proactively fix customer problems without having to wait for management approval. This employee empowerment—the permission to be creative, and even having the authority to spend money on a customer's behalf - is a resourceful way to resolve guest problems quickly and efficiently. When management places their faith in an employee's good judgment, it inspires a sense of trust and provides a sense of higher purpose beyond a simple paycheck. The April issue of the Hotel Business Review will document what some leading hotels are doing to cultivate and manage guest satisfaction in their operations.
