Onyx Centersource Launches Breakthrough Hospitality Business Insights Platform

USA, Dallas, Texas. March 05, 2019

Onyx CenterSource today introduced a full suite of analytic data services designed to assist its clients across the industry in boosting earnings by optimizing their distribution strategies.

Onyx's new analytic data services platform enables hotels to better understand their business performance in key areas, both historically and compared to industry benchmarks. Through the tool, hotels can view snapshots of individual property performance and drill into more detailed views like geographic analysis, variable commission, and operational reporting. Onyx hotel clients can also leverage the platform to better understand the return on investment of their strategic vendor partnerships.

Mark Dubrow, Onyx chief executive officer, said, "Our clients across the industry have chosen Onyx as their hospitality payments partner for over 25 years. Today, we are broadening our capabilities to include an actionable analytics platform that we have developed based on their feedback and input. Our clients told us they needed more accurate, centralized data to understand, assess and make better-informed business decisions. This solution makes those actionable insights readily available to users. We anticipate rolling similar tools out to the agency community soon."

Bill Nicholson, Onyx chief product officer, added, "One way Onyx provides unique value is by aggregating travel agency booking data with hotel client stay data, or consumed information. While other industry reporting services incorporate booking data, almost none include the data on bookings realized. These insights, which are uniquely available through our data platform, allow our hotel and travel agency clients to facilitate more profitable relationships and drive business results. The platform also enhances hotels' access to data across brands and geographic regions in deeper detail."

Hotel Law: A Labor Crisis and Cyber Security

According to a recent study, the hospitality industry accounted for 2.9 trillion dollars in sales and in the U.S. alone, was responsible for 1 in 9 jobs. In an industry of that scope and dimension, legal issues touch every aspect of a hotel's operation, and legal services are required in order to conform to all prevailing laws and regulations. Though not all hotels face the same issues, there are some industry-wide subjects that are of concern more broadly. One of those matters is the issue of immigration and how it affects the ability of hotels to recruit qualified employees. The hotel industry is currently facing a labor crisis; the U.S. Labor Department estimates that there are 600,000 unfilled jobs in the industry. Part of the problem contributing to this labor shortage is the lack of H2B visas for low-skilled workers, combined with the difficulty in obtaining J-1 visas for temporary workers. Because comprehensive immigration reform is not being addressed politically, hotel managers expect things are going to get worse before they get better. Corporate cyber security is another major legal issue the industry must address. Hotels are under enormous pressure in this area given the large volume of customer financial transactions they handle daily. Recently, a federal court ruled that the Federal Trade Commission had the power to regulate corporate cyber security, so it is incumbent on hotels to establish data security programs in order to prevent data breaches. The lack of such programs could cause hotels to face legal threats from government agencies, class action lawsuits, and damage to their brand image if a data breach should occur. These are just two of the critical issues that the December issue of Hotel Business Review will examine in the area of hotel law.
