Newly Launched Solution Provides Guests With Straightforward and Fully Secure Access to the Device-To-Television Casting of More Than 1,000 Mobile Apps.

USA, Clearwater, Florida. January 30, 2019

Hotel Internet Services (HIS), a full-service provider of internet services and solutions for the hospitality industry, has announced the launch of BeyondTV GuestCast™, an advanced casting solution that, while affordable for hoteliers to implement, provides guests with the ability to securely cast a wide range of personalized content from their own devices onto guestroom televisions.

Compatible with more than 1,000 mobile-based apps, the solution is significantly designed to provide hoteliers with a seamless implementation and management process, while ensuring ease-of-use for guests and providing complete protection over their privacy and personal data. With BeyondTV GuestCast, hotel guests are able to instantly cast their own content hassle-free from personal computers, iOS or Android-based devices. Guests can also rest assured that their sensitive data is never at risk of theft or unintential sharing, due to GuestCast's device isolation capabilities that prevent cross-room communication.

"Today's guests overwhelmingly favor online streaming services versus traditional video-on-demand offerings when it comes to in-room entertainment, with BeyondTV GuestCast serving as an affordable, yet fully functional solution that is capable of meeting this increasingly expected need," says Gary Patrick, CEO of Hotel Internet Services. "GuestCast not only provides users with the ability to continue accessing the content that they enjoy viewing at home, but critically provides them with the peace-of-mind that accessing such content is always completely safe despite being in a public environment."

Being an enterprise-grade hospitality solution, properties can quickly and seamlessly implement GuestCast, with the ability to operate on virtually any internet network or guestroom television model. The solution also integrates with a hotel's free-to-guest system. GuestCast further provides hoteliers with the ability to monitor system health and is backed by 24/7 support, ensuring that guests remain fully satisfied with their experience throughout the duration of their stay.

Revenue Management: Focus On Profit

Revenue Management is still a relatively new profession within hotel operations and as such, it continues to evolve. One significant trend in this area is a shift away from using revenue as the foundation to generate key performance indicators (KPIs) and to instead place the emphasis on profit. Traditionally, revenue managers have relied on total revenue per available room (TrevPAR) and revenue per available room (RevPAR) as the basis of their KPIs. Now, some revenue managers are using gross operating profit per available room (GOPPAR) as their primary KPI. This puts profit at the center of revenue management strategy, and managers are increasingly searching for new ways to increase the profitability of their hotels. Return on Investment is the objective of any hotel investment, so it is only logical that profitability and ROI will be emphasized going forward. Another trend is an expanded focus on direct hotel bookings. Revenue managers know that one way to increase profitability is to steer guests away from online travel agencies (OTAs) and book directly with the hotel. This tactic also reinforces brand identity and loyalty, and encourages repeat business. In addition, it provides a valuable platform to market the hotel directly to the customer, and to upsell room upgrades or other services to them. Another trend for revenue managers involves automation in their software programs. Revenue management systems with automation are far more desirable than those without it. Automating data entry and logistics increases efficiency, allowing managers to spend more time on formulating strategy. As a bonus, an automated system helps with aggregating and interpreting data. The October issue of the Hotel Business Review will address these developments and document how some leading hotels are executing their revenue management strategies.
